Magnet Program is a competitive entrance student cohort of the
nationally-recognized Wheaton High School Project Lead The Way program.
Motivated students have the opportunity to participate in a four-year
sequence of rigorous math, science, and medicine courses. Through a
hands-on and collaborative approach, students explore prevention,
diagnosis, and treatment of disease to design innovative solutions for
today’s health challenges. Students explore multiple medical fields to
develop a strong foundation for success in university pre-medical,
medical, and biomedical programs.
The Biomedical Magnet Program at Wheaton HS is an application-only program. Current Grade 8 students living in the Downcounty Consortium (DCC) or attending a DCC middle school may apply. Criteria used to evaluate candidates include teacher recommendations, written statements from candidates, previous grades, coursework, and test scores.
