Biomedical Pathway

The Biomedical Pathway is designed for students who excel in mathematics and natural sciences and are interested in the fields of biology or medicine. Students must possess well developed academics skills, have a desire to engage in challenging course work, and aspire to pursue higher education leading to a career in medicine or other related fields. In addition to rigorous classroom instruction in advanced math, health sciences, physical sciences, and chemical and biological sciences, students will gain considerable clinical knowledge through working with professionals in a hospital setting. Students will conduct independent research, participate in medical simulations, and attend lectures provided by physicians, research scientists, and other medical personnel.

Program Needs: Anatomage Table

St. John Bosco High School was built – and is sustained – by the generosity of others. Our growth is dependent on our ability to offer exceptional academics, athletics, faculty/staff and amazing opportunities for our students. St. John Bosco’s Biomedical Pathway is looking expand its resources with the purchase of an Anatomage Table to provide top educational tools that continue to give our Biomedical students a “leg up” upon
entering college.

The addition of an Anatomage Table brings the most technologically advanced 3D anatomy visualization and virtual dissection tool for Anatomy and Physiology to the classroom and has already been adopted by many of the world’s leading schools and universities. The presence and
visual impact of this system alone places St. John Bosco as the leader in technological advancements among all private schools. This dream is close to becoming a reality for our students as we are just $17,000 short of reaching our $82,000 goal.

We invite you to view our presentation below, learn more about this state of the art technology and considering making a gift, no matter the size, to help make this dream our reality. It truly takes a village to bring tools and resources like this to our students -- will you consider helping our mission?
