The Integrated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Academy offers a unique interdisciplinary experience for students who wish to pursue a rigorous sequence of STEM courses while engaging in professional presentations, field experiences, mentors, capstone projects, and other STEM enrichment activities. The STEM Academy offers a rich suite of courses arranged into several tracks of learning such as Engineering, Sustainability, Architecture, Biomedicine, Research Science and Computer Science. Entering freshmen that apply to the STEM Academy commit to a four-year program of study that requires additional STEM coursework yet is flexible enough to allow for non-STEM electives. STEM Academy students need to complete their required coursework for their chosen track to graduate with Honors from the STEM program. STEM Academy students enter a foundational Integrated STEM course in ninth grade. By tenth grade, students choose a designated STEM pathway and arrange the required courses as a cohesive sequence of elective studies. MHS STEM students will complete an integrated capstone project, senior mentorship, required course work, professional mentorship, and community service while participating in the program. Graduates of the STEM Academy go on to continue their education at some of the most prestigious colleges and universities across the country!
