Registration open for Ben Carson Academy at Morehouse School of Medicine

Looking for a way to expose your child to more science and math? Check out Ben Carson Academy, a program for elementary and middle-school children held at Morehouse School of Medicine.

The academy exposes kids to science and math, and health care careers. Although the Academy doesn’t appear to be restricted to minority students, it’s clear there is a socio-cultural aspect that’s designed to engage the Black student. For example, students learn about African-American contributions to medicine and participate in African dance and Kiswahili.

One advantage of enrolling your child at Ben Carson Academy is that it may put them on a path to someday be selected for the Vivien Thomas Summer Program, in which high-school students can work as apprentices in biomedical research labs at Morehouse.

Classes will be held on Saturday mornings, Oct. 9 to Nov. 13. Registration, via mailed application, is open until Aug. 31.
