Elite Academic Academy Achieves Historic Milestone as the First Non-Classroom-Based HOSA Chapter in California

Elite Academic Academy is pleased to announce that they are the first non-classroom-based program to earn acceptance as an official HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) California Chapter.

“Starting a HOSA chapter at Elite opens up a world of opportunity for our students,” said Lupe Rodriguez, Associate Director of Career Technical Education (CTE) at Elite Academic Academy.” It's more than just learning about health science and careers; it's about developing leadership skills, understanding the importance of ethical practices, and building a strong sense of community. HOSA gives students a glimpse into the healthcare industry, inspiring a more profound interest and passion in medicine. It's an excellent way for them to gain real-world insights and prepare for future careers in healthcare. I'm excited to see how this chapter will help develop compassionate, skilled professionals ready to make a real difference.”
