Glen Oaks Magnet is proud to offer two unique programs in the EBR School System for students who demonstrate an interest and aptitude for medical and health careers. Students are eligible to enroll during Grades 9 – 11. Our school is also excited to announce the addition of two new programs for interested EBR students! Starting with the 2019-2020 academic year, students can also enter a radio broadcasting program and a sports medicine program! Through a multitude of projects, internships, unique lessons, and more, students are able to “try out” a career before they begin their formal post-secondary education in it. The application period for all four of these programs opened on February 1, 2019 so if you have not put in your application, you should do so as soon as possible.
