Wheeler STEAM Academy Description


What is the STEAM Academy?

The Wheeler STEAM Academy is a program offered to Wheeler High School students who are interested in pursuing advanced opportunities in any of the STEAM Fields, with a particular emphasis on Science and Math.  The program is open to any student who is interested and able to complete science courses at an Honors or AP Level.  STEAM Academy students will be placed together in cohort classes for their STEAM Sciences.  Students will have access to an accelerated, diverse, and innovative STEAM curriculum.   The successful completion of the program will require that students complete all of the curriculum requirements as outlined below.  Students are intentionally given as much flexibility in their schedule as possible in order to pursue their own interests, whether in or out of the STEAM fields.

By the end of the sophomore year, STEAM Academy students will have completed all of their required high school science courses, allowing them the opportunity to pursue their interests in science and other areas in their junior and senior years.
