The STEM Academy is a place where students can explore their passion in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We utilize the power of technology and the community to create a unique experience that allows each student to grow in their area of interest.
Students typically apply for the academy at the end of their freshman year. They will be placed in a STEM Advisory based on their interest area, the four advisory strands are life science, medicine, engineering and computer science. All students in the academy will need to attend 10 lecture series events, take the STEM internship class and complete an independent capstone project in their senior year.
We rely strongly on community volunteers to provide experiences for the students in our academy. If you think you would like to help, please click here to tell us more about what you might like to do.
