Why is STEM education important?

The importance of STEM education is intricately tied to society’s technological and scientific advancements. The National Science Foundation maintains that students will need a strong foundation in STEM subjects in order to be successful in the information-driven age.

The benefits of STEM education are also far-reaching for students of all ages and backgrounds.

STEM education and the application of technology empowers every student to use their creativity and develop their critical thinking skills.

This fellowship among faculty, students, and parents further helps students grow in their commitment to the service of God, one another, the Church, and the global community.
