In partnership with the follow groups: Saint Alphonsus Medical Group, St. Luke’s Medical Group, and TVCC, Ontario High School is participating in a Health Career Technical Education Program. This s a three year program designed to prepare students for entry level positions in the medical field.

In the second year of the program, students will choose to focus on one of two tracks: the CNA Track and the Medical Office Assistant Track. There is limited space in the CNA class and students are selected based on performance in Exploring Health Careers and teacher recommendation. Students who are not selected for the CNA class are encouraged to pursue it on their own through TVCC the following summer. The Poverty to Prosperity Program will assist with the cost of the class and books should you pursue this class outside Ontario HS.

This program does contain college level work so students must be prepared to take classes with high expectations. Good attendance is crucial to passing the classes.
