Employers today are starving for women who are equipped with the skills needed to survive in the rapidly expanding STEAM fields. St. Teresa's Academy is passionate about educating young women to thrive in this reality. Through STEAM-related courses, projects, and extracurricular activities, students are encouraged to take thoughful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
ST. TERESA'S ACADEMY IS AN INSTITUTIONAL MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL CONSORTIUM OF SECONDARY STEM SCHOOLS
The National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools (NCSSS) was established in 1988 to provide a forum for specialized secondary schools focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines to exchange information and program ideas.
Celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2018, the Consortium now includes approximately 80 member schools (high schools), many ‘ranked’ as the best in the country, along with 30 affiliate members (colleges, universities, foundations, and summer programs) located in 32 states, that share the goals of transforming mathematics, science, and technology education. The Consortium has expanded membership in 2016 to include international members and corporate members.
STEAM CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
St. Teresa’s launched a STEAM Certificate program in the fall of 2016. The STEAM Certificate acknowledges students for their achievements and involvement in STEAM related activities. This is a multi-year effort that focuses on several academic subject areas and community learning. The program is designed to provide preparation and opportunities related to STEAM fields in and beyond the typical classroom day. Students completing the STEAM certificate will receive special recognition in the commencement program as well as documentation on their transcript.

The application will be available in Fall 2021.
