This 4-year program adds professional resources and experiences to our teaching professionals. It creates a special concentration of study in the areas of Engineering, Medicine, Business­Entrepreneurship and Media/Film that will be highlighted on your son’s diploma. Specifically, in addition to college prep courses, Benedictine students in this program will now have:

    1. Special content courses in each area, which include college credit courses and ethics courses
    2. Lectures and workshops by our career professionals
    3. Summer internship experiences as an upperclassman

These courses will fit into your normal college prep schedule following your freshman year. The table below provides an overview of the program:

Student Matriculation into the Program

The Program would start with the 2018‐2019 school year and would start with the class of 2022. The BGSU CCP classes will be added to the program in the following manner: Freshmen courses in 2018‐2019; Sophomore classes in 2019‐2020; Junior classes in 2020‐2021; and Senior classes in 2021‐2022. Students in classes before 2021 are able to participate in the business curriculum at Benedictine as outlined in the curriculum guide. Students can participate in the VEALE Foundation Youth Entrepreneurship Program at any time during their studies at BHS. The goal with the BGSU program is to have students receive college credit from BGSU for their study at BHS.

Student admission into the program is on a yearly basis. Student progress will be evaluated by the director and administration for continuance in the program. Students have the right to leave the program at any time and the administration reserves the right to recommend a student not continue with the program should interest or progress wane.

For continuance in the program a student must receive no less than a C+ (80%) in any course required by the program.

*Special Pre – Engineering focus of the required Computer Applications class.  May take place in the sophomore year for  those who have transferred to BHS.

**Students who have more advanced math placement will work with the department to outline completion of the State  of Ohio math requirement for 4 years.

***Not necessarily coursework, but workshops in a retreat style that address these issues.  These may also be presented  in conjunction with the BenMed and Entrepreneurship Programs.

Student Matriculation into the Program

The Program as outlined here would start with the 2018 – 2019 school year and be fully implemented beginning with the class of 2021.  Students may enter the Program in either  Freshmen or Sophomore year.  Due to the Capstone Program requirement, students may not  enter the program their junior year; however, any of the Engineering Core classes are open to  all BHS students, regardless of participation in the Program per se.  Since this program has  been gradually introduced for the past three years, students graduating before 2021 will have  variations on the outlined program.  Students in the class of 2021 who wish to matriculate into  the program must realize that there will be more requirements to complete in the first part  and must have completed the regular Science and Math classes.

Student admission into the program is on a yearly basis.  Student progress will be evaluated by  the director and administration for continuance in the program.  Students have the right to  leave the program at any time and the administration reserves the right to recommend a  student not continue with the program.  The Engineering Club is open to all students in the  school.  It is hoped that students in the Program will continue to participate in this bi‐monthly  program and its activities, hopefully encouraging others to participate in the program.

For continuance in the program a student must receive no less than a C+ (80%) in any course  required by the program.

***Workshops in a retreat style that address these issues.

SVCMC Rotations: These rotations will depend on direct availability of staff at SVCMC and program developments through our preceptor. The preferred model is to move these rotations to the summer or after school, which would involve more focused time on the student medical experience. If possible, the students would also be able to participate in this program during the school year as outlined by the Program Director and the school administration. The main goal of our partnership with SVCMC is to provide the student with a hospital experience that is broad enough to cover the vast majority of general medical procedures. Focus will be able to expand in the junior and senior year participation in the program. The program is designed to be as flexible as possible, which also demands flexibility on the part of the student to be responsible for their studies and any missed work due to rotation schedules or scheduled workshops.

Student Matriculation into the Program

Student admission into the program is on a yearly basis. Student progress will be evaluated by the director and preceptor of the program in conjunction with the school administration for continuance in the program. Students have the right to leave the program at any time and the administration reserves the right to recommend a student not continue with the program.

For continuance in the program a student must receive no less than a C+ (80%) in any course required by the program.
