FUTURE FOCUSED EDUCATION

STEAM EDUCATION

STEAM = SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARTS & MATHEMATICS

At Academy Private School, we prepare our students with the 21st century knowledge and skill set needed to impact their surroundings from a local, national, and global perspective.

STEAM is found in everything, in every discipline, and in every product we use in life!

We aim to implement an innovative and creative, student-centered learning environment where students and teachers utilize the latest technology in the acquisition of knowledge and skills to succeed in a competitive global economy.

STEAM Education leads to innovation, new ways of thinking, new technologies, new music and much more.

At Academy Private School we believe by providing students digital access and infusing technology across and within the curriculum that our students will become responsible digital participants in our society. We use technology to:

  • CREATE ACTIVE LEARNERS – We use technology that allows all students to become actively engaged in class.

STEAM educational approach to learning provides access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

Academy Private School will continue to phase in STEAM Learning into its curriculum during 2018 and 2019.
