Welcome to the
Bedford County Public Schools
Governor's Health Sciences Academy!
The mission of the Bedford County Governor’s Health Sciences Academy is to provide students with a clear educational pathway which will prepare them to meet their career goals in high-demand, high-wage, and high-skill health sciences careers in Virginia.
Our programs provide students with entry-level and college preparatory skills, creating a strong foundation toward attainment of each students’ healthcare related career/educational goals. Each program curriculum is aligned with the course competencies developed by the state of Virginia as well as their respective governing boards. Students gain knowledge, learn marketable skills, and develop a strong work ethic through the emphasis placed on the Virginia Workplace Readiness Skills embedded in each course. Students will have access and exposure to 21st century technology resources specific to their program of study, as well as hands-on, inquiry-based learning opportunities to support critical thinking/problem-solving skills, build strong communication skills, establish leadership capacities, and develop into lifelong learners.
