Unlearn What You Know About High School

Rethink What You Know About High School


Welcome to Bio-Med Science Academy, a STEM+M high school.


Bio-Med Science Academy focuses on these areas of study to help high school students gain the skills they’ll need to succeed – in a world that has never been more demanding, and in economies defined by the quality of the people working in those fields.
The Academy is partnered with, and located on the campus of, Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) in Rootstown, Ohio. With the support and resources of NEOMED and the Ohio STEM Learning Network, Bio-Med Science Academy began its first STEM+M academic year with a freshman class of 70 in August 2012.


A nontraditional public school

Our students (and their parents) can expect to have their natural abilities nurtured in progressive, dynamic, and rigorous ways. They are motivated to:

  • think critically.
  • solve complex problems.
  • drive advancements in our five key areas of study.
  • prepare for real-world living and working.

Graduates of Bio-Med Science Academy will be logical thinkers and innovators, but it’s not our purpose to produce “industrial automatons.” Armed with a balance of disciplines from the arts, humanities and sciences, Academy graduates will possess:

  • fully developed social skills.
  • collaborative instincts.
  • creative thinking abilities.
  • a strong sense of community.

Our unique program is open to all Ohio students entering their high school freshman year.
