Our STEAM Academy program is centered on an extended block schedule that provides rigorous instruction and timely feedback based on student achievement.  Our base set of course offerings are in the areas of Humanities (Language Arts and Social Studies), Math, and Science to specifically address your child’s academic needs from intervention to acceleration.  With our block schedule design, your child will receive extended hours in the areas of Math and Science.  Each child is held to high expectations at our Academy, and we offer many support services to help them achieve these standards.  

In addition to our outstanding core academic classes, we take “Pride” in providing innovative pathway elective programs that keep our students coming back for more.  We offer each child electives based on curriculum-focused areas in Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Biomedical content.  We also offer a thirty-minute Innovation period based on these pathway offerings if your child is not in need of intervention.  In a few of our specialty classes, our students get extended time built in to their school day to go in-depth in coursework such as media, robotics, and advanced math.  

Once again, we want to thank you for choosing our STEAM Academy as your child’s next educational experience.  If for any reason you will not be attending our Academy, please contact our office immediately at (619) 668-5720 as we have families on a waiting list to attend. We look forward to serving you and your family.
