The Yale-Career Partnership brings together Hill Regional Career High School, a regional magnet high school in New Haven, CT, with Yale School of Medicine and Yale School of Nursing in a collaborative educational partnership. The Partnership sponsors programs that give Career HS students and teachers access to the resources and facilities of Yale University and Yale Medical Center. One such program is SCHOLAR, a residential summer science program at Yale for Career High School students.
