Community Academy of Science and Health

  • The Community Academy of Science and Health (CASH) is a small, college-prep high school. Our mission is to prepare students from diverse backgrounds to pursue advanced studies and careers in the fields of science and health. Student voice is critical in the development, implementation, and review of our practices. 

    Community partners offer internships and career opportunities for the integration of our school's theme. CASH's diverse population will provide an infusion of well-prepared, multilingual young adults into the fields of science and health. Courses offered by CASH and partnering universities support academic rigor to prepare students to exceed the standards.
