As the middle school component of the Future Health Professionals Program, the Saturday Academy is a longitudinal program in which local students from URM backgrounds participate in educational activities for nine Saturdays throughout the academic year. Students participate in basic science lectures that serve as supplementary education in anatomy/physiology, biology, chemistry, and mathbiostatistics with a laboratory component that helps them gain laboratory skills. Field trips and additional experiential education opportunities will also be integrated throughout the program.

The overarching themes of Saturday Academy are to:

  • Provide supplemental enrichment opportunities in STEM subjects for Philadelphia 7th & 8th graders
  • Engage students in activities that are hands-on and fun
  • Encourage students to take a team based approach while participating in the discovery process
  • Serve as preparation for future education opportunities
