Instruction includes a focus on how Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, in combination, allows students to solve problems. Engineering, through design thinking, builds empathy as students consider solutions to campus, local, state, and global issues. Students in the STEM Academy take STEM Pre-AP and AP Courses. 9th and 10th grade students enroll in STEM core courses, 11th and 12th grade students enroll in STEM sections of AP Capstone Courses.

STEM instruction is appropriate for all students prepared for rigorous coursework. 9th-grade students enroll in AP Human Geography. Juniors take AP English or Dual Credit English. Students must have a desire to collaborate and the willingness to stretch their own thinking. If your child has an affinity for science, math, designing and building, problem-solving and collaboration, STEM is a great option!
