Saturday Science Academy II (SSA II) exposes Pre-k through 12th grade students to fun and engaging science material in an effort to motivate them to move into health care fields after graduating high school. The program deepens and sustains student interest in science and health education and establishes a pathway through college and into health professions. Students are introduced to various concepts in human anatomy and physiology, math, biomedical engineering, physical science, global health, plant life and marine biology, each in an 8-week academically rich learning intense program phase. Each phase is designed to introduce students to broad and in-depth subject area content thereby increasing their knowledge. Within this programmatic framework, complimentary program activities are employed to maximize student learning outcomes and engage parents/caregivers.

During the summer, a mathematics program is provided to encourage reinforcement and retention of academic knowledge and skills gained throughout the academic year. SSA II also includes a college readiness component, SAT preparation, critical thinking courses, parent workshops and field trips to supplement classroom learning with real world experiences. SSA II places a heavy emphasis on work ethics that are applicable to school and are important for joining the work force, their future educational goals, the health care industry and working with the community.
