Apply at the STEM Middle School Magnet Program

Start with 3 simple steps.

Shadow Visit (Optional)

Parent or Guardian approval is needed.

Students and parents are encouraged to sign up for one of our Shadowing opportunities.
Come and learn about what makes STEM Academy unique, tour the campus, and speak with teachers and students about their experiences at STEM Academy. Parents and students will go on separate tours designed to present information relevant to each group. A member of our STEM Administrative Team leads parents, and one of our STEM Ambassadors leads students during the tour.

Shadowing is open to all students who would be eligible for submitting a lottery form for the upcoming year. We can’t wait to open our doors to you!
