THE SATURDAY ACADEMY was a collaborative initiative between Cleveland Clinic and Health Legacy of Cleveland, Inc., that supported underrepresented high school students, by providing participants with career information and critical skill sets to support their matriculation through higher education, medical/dental school and beyond.
Students engaged with health care professionals to learn of the various aspects associated with the fields of medicine, science, and dentistry. Hands-on activities; talks, tours; mentoring sessions with health care professionals; and the implementation of a public health project are all part of this intensive program

WEST POINT STEM CAMP
West Point, CWRU, Cleveland Municipal School District & HLC
This program is in collaboration with West Point, CWRU, Cleveland Municipal School District and Health Legacy of Cleveland. It supports high school students in the development of the critical skills necessary for a career in healthcare as a physician or scientist. Identified students evidence aptitude for science and math proficiency as well as those emotional factors that would support successful matriculation through medical school or higher education.
As part of the Urban Leadership Initiative, dozens of middle school students will program and build robots, use computers to design airplanes and treat simulated patients at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.
Health Legacy of Cleveland was approached by West Point Academy’s Urban Leadership Initiative to provide 40 seventh and eighth graders in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program with a one-day camp to harness their interest in the sciences and to keep them on a path toward further STEM-related education and careers.
