Explore a nontraditional public school
Bio-Med Science Academy opened in Rootstown, Ohio in August 2012. Our inaugural class of 69 ninth graders came from 27 school districts across Mahoning, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, and Portage counties.
The Academy received formal STEM designation in April 2013. As a member of the Ohio STEM Learning Network (OSLN), BMSA joined other recognized STEM schools across the state and the nation.
The Academy is the only STEM school in the United States housed on an academic health center campus, and one of few located in a rural area. This unique positioning gives rural Ohio students and their teachers direct access to sophisticated research laboratories, scientists, professors and medical professionals. The distinctive environment we foster creates a truly extraordinary learning experience for Academy students.
