Holland Medical High School is a unique, collaborative partnership between Hardin-Simmons University – a private, higher-education institution – with the Abilene Independent School District – a K-12 public school system. Built on the northeast corner of the beautiful HSU campus in north Abilene, Holland Medical High School is located near the largest medical community in West Texas, including the adjacent Hendrick Medical Center.

Click the link above for a presentation about the courses offered at Holland Medical High School.  

Holland opened its doors in 2007 in the pursuit of a mission to prepare quality healthcare workers to meet the needs of the Abilene community and beyond. Holland has helped attract record numbers into AISD’s Health Science program. Since its first year, Holland has seen an approximately 120% growth in enrollment in upper-level health science courses. About 220 students from Cooper and Abilene High spend half of their school day in upper-class health science courses at Holland. When one adds the prerequisite introductory classes at the two main high schools, more than 500 students in AISD are enrolled in health science classes.

The Holland teaching staff, including three Registered Nurses and one Certified Medical Technologist is preparing students in Certified Nurses Aide, Pharmacy Technician, Certified Medical Assistant, Registered Dental Assistant and Phlebotomy Technician programs. Holland’s faculty has helped students earn more than 800 industry-ready certifications. Numerous students are already working in local healthcare facilities and offices while participating in both paid and unpaid internships. In addition, students at Holland use state-of-the-art science equipment in Anatomy & Physiology classes and in Microbiology. Both AP and regular English III are offered to 11th graders in a course designed specifically for students interested in the medical profession.

Whether students are looking to become physicians, nurses, dentists, or researchers – or simply looking to earn a certification that will lead to a part-time job as they continue their education – Holland provides students a valuable launching pad.¬† At Holland, we are ‚ÄúPreparing healthcare professionals today for the medical workplace tomorrow.‚ÄĚ
