Toledo Public Schools announces launch of new medical academy

Toledo Public Schools officials announced it will open a new magnet school that offers high school students an opportunity to earn associate degrees in the medical field — giving them college credits toward earning a four-year pre-med diploma as well as certificates to work in hospitals immediately after their high school graduation.

The Toledo Pre-Medical and Health Science Academy will launch next fall inside the Toledo Technology Academy with 72 freshmen students, TPS Superintendent Romules Durant said Thursday during a news conference at the technology academy. Plans are for the academy to then add another grade level each academic year as next year’s freshmen progress through the academy, with all grades represented at the high school by fall of 2025.
