The idea of a specialized school for students with special gifts in the STEM disciplines is a big step forward for children with social and learning differences. STEM³ Academy grew out of a pilot program at The Help Group in 2013, and quickly gained traction in just a few short years. Today, we are located on three campuses and have over 150 students enrolled.
While paving the way to success for students with special needs, we are also filling the growing gap for skilled STEM workers nationwide. Economists report that the U.S. is poised to experience a severe shortfall of skilled workers to fill some 8.65 million jobs in STEM related fields.
