What is STREAM Education?

STREAM education integrates Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math into course curriculum in order to prepare students to meet the demanding skills required in the 21st century. Skills, such as:
  • ♦ group collaboration,
  • ♦ problem solving,
  • ♦ independent research, and
  • ♦ project-based learning

will be key factors in learning, while still maintaining a strong focus on teaching core subjects and test-taking.
