The administration and faculty are proud to announce that AdvancED has recommended St. Thomas Aquinas High School for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Certification.
STEM Certification verifies that STA is a leader in preparing students for careers of tomorrow by fostering and perpetuating enthusiasm for STEM in all academic disciplines. STEM Certification reviewers examined education efforts and programs in all STEM related departments. Reviewers interviewed school administrators, faculty, staff, parents, students, and community partners in order to verify STA's commitment to STEM.
Student Creativity, Communication, Critical Thinking, and Collaboration, the 4 C's of STEM, serve as focus points in the development of technology at STA. The recent addition of the Anatomage Table and Augmented/Virtual Reality experiences compliment an existing rigorous curriculum at STA. Reviewers also recognized a variety of STEM competencies available through STA's Robotics and Independent Research programs. These efforts have elevated the overall educational experience for STA students.
