The Medical and BioScience Academy (MBSA) of Longmont High School is designed for students interested in careers or post-secondary education rooted in the health sciences.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, industries surrounding the health sciences (including biotechnology, medical studies, and other related fields) are expected to experience a tremendous amount of growth over the next 10 to 20 years. MBSA students are primed to take advantage of this opportunity.

The MBSA provides rigorous college-preparatory curricula and instruction that prepares students for highly competitive admissions, and post-secondary education programs in medicine, research, and allied health sciences.
