STEAM Scholar Program
The STEAM Program emphasizes the integration of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics to cultivate complete thinking as part of a liberal arts paradigm. By understanding the way these subjects work together, students are equipped with the necessary skills to address the needs of the broader world.
Here are a few ways the STEAM Program accomplishes this:
- STEAM-based internships prepare students for the marketplace through real-life work experiences.
- Completing a STEAM-based research project exposes students to high-level questions, inquiry, and presentation of their results.
- AP and Honors-level courses provide college-preparatory work while displaying rigor of transcript and a specific area of passion for college entrance.
The STEAM Program Offers Two Distinct Tracks:
STEAM Honors’ students are required to take ten STEAM courses, one of which must be taken online or off-campus and two courses must be at the AP level. Students can apply for STEAM Honors at the end of their Freshman year; Class of 2018 students are eligible to apply at the end of their Sophomore year. Complete the STEAM Honors Application by Friday, May 27, 2016.
STEAM Scholars’ students are required to take ten STEAM courses, one of which must be taken online or off-campus and two courses must be at the AP level. They will also complete an internship at a university, business, or non-profit. Finally, STEAM Scholars must successfully complete a final senior project focusing their efforts on STEAM issues with the approval of the student’s committee and STEAM Director. Students are eligible to apply for STEAM Scholars at the end of their Junior year.
