Why you’ll love our program:

Student Learning Plan & Progress Tracking

We start the process with a meeting the parents and student to understand their goals and interests.  Based on the discussions, we provide a personalized student learning plan, which outlines the classes and projects for the student.  Parents will be able to track their child’s progress via the STEM Academy parent portal.

STEM Classes and Projects

We offer student-centered STEM classes and projects in – Programming, Robotics, Game Design, Digital Arts, Engineering, Math and Science.  Students select the STEM subjects of their interest and take classes and work on projects to learn at their own pace.

STEM Competitions

Students will also have the opportunity to participate in STEM competitions (regional and national) throughout the year, allowing your students to demonstrate their skills and knowledge in a fun, competitive environment.

Homework Center

We will have an increased focus on homework, where each student will get the personalized homework help, and Mindframe teachers will record a daily log and track student assignments.

After School Clubs

We will offer ‘After School Clubs’ for students to learn in a team environment- such as chess, puzzles, typing, and other activities for them to choose from.
