NAVTA Certification

The Vet Science program at Locust Trace is one of 5 high school programs in the nation to be endorsed by the National Association for Veterinary Technitions in America. This means that students can take a test at the end of their third semester in the course to become certified as an "Approved Veterinary Assistant" (AVA). This allows students to earn more money and get better jobs in the veterinary field.
