About Us

Medicine and Community Health (MCH) Academy at Cody has partnered with the Institute of Student Achievement (ISA) and United Way to be a leading educational force in the community. Using the ISA model, we are continuously monitoring our progress and refining program components to fit the needs of our students.  We also empower parents to participate in their student’s education by making them aware of school events and volunteer opportunities.

Students at MCH are exposed to career information in the medical field and prepared for college courses upon graduation. We offer college prep classes as well as the ability to earn college credits while attending our school. Students are involved with the community by participating in local activities that raise awareness and support for those in need. MCH nurtures students and prepares them for new experiences they will face as active members of the community.

Visit our school and you will find small class sizes, nurturing teachers, free breakfast and lunch, specialized tutoring, extended day classes, summer enrichment and team sports.
