North Bergen S.T.E.M. Academy
The S.T.E.M. initiative has become an American priority.
"... Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today—especially in science, technology, engineering and math."
- President Barack Obama, September 16, 2010
The goal is to prepare our Students for future in S.T.E.M. with an exposure to all the different fields as well as the skills to be successful. Students who complete the 4-year program will not just receive credit for one of the most rigorous curriculum, but will have experiences and opportunities which will allow them to differentiate from their peers.
The goal of the program is to offer an accelerated and demanding curriculum for our most gifted and talented students who are considering attending highly competitive colleges and universities. The Program will also give the students exposure to many different fields, using a variety of educational expediencies, to find their perfect niche. This will eventually lead to the students not walking into their higher education wondering what to study.
General: The Cohort will move as a unit throughout their 4 years with classes together in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The students will be with the general population for their remaining classes. This ensures the student to get the full High school experiences (taking music, art, etc.), while ensuring a rigorous curriculum in S.T.E.M.
