Preparing Students For Their Future

STEAM courses empower students to think critically and creatively while honing their problem-solving skills and preparing them to work in fast-growing fields.

The Georgia Connections STEAM academy is a highly specialized program for students. The program provides an opportunity for selected students to take STEAM-enhanced core classes, STEAM electives, participate in weekly collaborative STEAM LiveLesson® sessions, STEAM-focused clubs, school events, and a character education program. The high school STEAM curriculum allows for customization and specialization, participation in dual enrollment, and places an emphasis on college and career readiness.
