About Brimm Medical Arts High School

Brimm Medical Arts High School was the vision of the former superintendent and mayor of Camden. His premise was, in a city in which the largest growth industry is health care, there were very few minorities in upper level positions. In 1994, Brimm Medical Arts became a reality with 60 freshmen. The fourth floor of Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing was leased for one dollar. Brimm has since graduated students who have selected careers in the Camden healthcare system. 

Brimm Medical Arts is a magnet school with a comprehensive high school curriculum which encompasses the New Jersey Core Content Standards with a medical infusion that introduces healthcare professionals and health related hands-on experiences. Students must apply for enrollment at the eight grade level and they must be a resident of Camden. The selection process requires students to write an essay during the time of their interview. Students must have a 2.5 average in science and math, a good attendance history, and no serious behavioral infractions.
