Program Goals

In a Christ-centered environment, the Applied STEM program prepares students to discover, innovate, and impact their community. Each student pursues an individually calibrated course of curricular and co-curricular activities focused on their interests differentiating them from their peers as they approach college admissions.

  • Discover: Students interact with a diverse array of STEM fields and topics 
  • Innovate: Students are afforded authentic opportunities to apply their knowledge, design, and create
  • Impact: Students see their role as a leader in making a positive impact on their community

"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."

Genesis 1:27
