Preparing for College and Beyond
ARJ is one of the highest-performing secondary schools in the State of Georgia with the simple mission of focusing on student improvement so that all students may become lifelong learners and productive citizens. Total enrollment for grades 7-12 is approximately 600 students.
The health science program at ARJ uses National Healthcareer Association (NHA) certifications and targeted exam preparation materials from NHA to validate student learning and results.
“We want to instill professionalism and competency as early as possible,” said Clarke. “The marketplace is competitive and we want them to be prepared.”
ARJ recommends that students secure NHA stacked credentials, including certifications for Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT), Certified EKG Technician (CET) and Certified Patient Care Technician/Assistant (CPCT/A).
“ARJ’s curriculum and NHA certifications give students many choices and great opportunities for full or part-time employment,” said Clarke. “We want them to do their best and pursue excellence. The NHA certifications help us measure and recognize them for excellent work.”
