CMS is proud to introduce the Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences, a county-wide magnet high school dedicated to the field of medicine.  A $15,000,000 campus renovation, central location, and strong industry partnerships with the National Academy Foundation, North Carolina New Schools, Project Lead the Way, and Carolinas HealthCare Systems have positioned the Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences as Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' premier county-wide health sciences magnet. 

The academy team offers programs of study that focus on general medicine, nursing, emergency services, and pharmacy technologies.  These rigorous programs prepare high school students for success in college with a relevance that addresses growing workforce shortages in healthcare.

Click on the following link to watch our Hawthorne students featured in a public service announcement on the importance of taking to kids about underage drinking. Talk it Out is a program that is currently being implemented in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools in 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th grade health education classrooms.





Dr. Shagufta Y. Raja provided an Advanced Placement (AP) workshop for students at Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences High School on November 4, 2015.  The AP workshop was provided for all students who are enrolled in AP classes.  Dr. Raja asked students "Why take AP classes?" She stated that AP classes build confidence!  Students who take AP classes develop better study habits, writing skills and sharpen their problem-solving abilities.  Students who take AP classes have the confidence to tackle the academic challenges expected in college.  Dr. Raja also emphasized to students that by taking AP classes, when students enter college with AP credit that the student can move into upper level courses. She stated that students may also want to pursue a double major or study/travel abroad.  Dr. Raja stated that research consistently shows that students who are successful in AP classes typically experience greater success in college than similar students who do not participate in AP classes.

Dr. Raja informed students that a college education is a necessity, not a luxury!!! Students worked collaboratively in groups during this workshop and also performed a science experiment with lasers on the Path of Light.  All of the students and the staff present greatly enjoyed this wonderful presentation.

Dr. Raja is the Director of STEM Education at the University of North Carolina Charlotte.
