The new programs are Health Career Pathway and Liberal Arts Academy. The Health Career Pathway is designed to prepare PHS students to continue their studies in a health career at Palau Community College or another college or to rain them to succeed in entry-level health care positions.

This pathway has been developed through a partnership with the Ministry of Education, PCC, and the Ministry of Health and consists of four new courses developed specifically for this career pathway such as Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, Math for Health Careers, Communication in Health Careers and Community Health in Palau and Micronesia.

The Liberal Arts Academy is designed to help prepare students for further study in college and to increase opportunities for students interested in liberal arts who previously did not have a career academy.

The career pathway consists of the following four new courses: College Preparation; Introduction to Liberal Arts; Communication in the Liberal Arts and Contemporary Issues in Palau and Micronesia.

These new programs began in August and a total of 26 students have enrolled in them. Further inquiries; call Chief Sinton Soalablai or Principal Ibuuch Tomoichi-Dean
