Interested in a health-care career?

ACES is a year-long, multi-year program that offers students a chance to network with other like-minded students interested in pursuing health careers, receive one-on-one career counseling, college preparation, career exploration, health professions schools admissions information, develop professionalism skills, meet health care providers and students and more.  Students meet one Saturday each month October – April.  They are planning “in person” monthly Saturday workshops thanks to our AHEC Advisory board member Jeremy Bonnesen and the Missouri Innovation Center/Summit Tech Academy!  Workshops will be held on Saturdays from 10-2 and a few virtual sessions may be included and/or utilized if needed.  Students must commit to the entire year to participate.

There are several open seats for students with a STRONG interest in pursuing health care.  Current SOPHOMORES and JUNIORS are the desired audience and will receive priority, however we may accept current freshman.  Unfortunately we are not taking any seniors at this time.  Students must submit an application, transcript, short essay on their interest in health care and a letter of recommendation. The application and calendar of events is below.

Senate Bill 638 established in 2016 requires that each school district provide the address of the website created by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to inform all parents of the students in its district about the trauma-informed schools initiative that includes information for schools and parents regarding the trauma-informed approach and a guide for schools on how to become trauma-informed schools.  Here is the link to the website: http://motraumaschools.com.
