Small Classes, Great Friends
HPA classes are interesting. You get lots of extra attention from teachers who care an extra amount. Lectures are kept to a minimum. Instead you'll get practical experience solving problems in small groups. The Health Professions Academy is a "School within-a School" at Socorro High School. However, the program is open to any student in the Socorro Independent School District. HPA is a great way to make friends that will last a lifetime.
