STEM Academy Curriculum
The school curriculum will be content based and utilize Project Based Learning (PBL) as part of the instructional process. In Project Based Learning, students go through an extended process of inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. Rigorous projects help students learn key academic content and practice 21st century skills, such as collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
