The first school of its kind, STEM3 Academy provides a robust Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) based curriculum to students with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and other social and learning differences. We are dedicated to K-12 students who are bright, have a passion for STEM-related fields, and may benefit from non-traditional learning methods.
We seek to vastly improve outcomes for STEM3 Academy students by addressing the following areas:
1. Content – Developmentally appropriate, specialized curriculum that features interdisciplinary connections across fields as well as deep exploration of concepts and themes;
2. Method – Student-centered, project-based learning infused with real-world applications promoting critical thinking, creativity and collaboration;
3. Pathway to Careers – Exposure to professional internships, mentorships, university collaborations, professional laboratories and partnerships with the community provide models for careers in STEM;
4. 21st Century Skills – Content alone is not sufficient. Our students learn to develop essential life skills and to consider that the way they approach the world, their own engagement and social interactions, will play a key role in their own success.
