Inspired by STEM

At their core, both art and science are about discovery. Because our goal is to help our students discover their own unique talents & personal passions, the arts & sciences are presented as a dual-lens through which students view their learning & their experiences. Students apply core knowledge, scientific concepts, & skills they develop in their pathway programs, to real-world problems & issues.
