STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics - is the broad umbrella for how the curriculum in this "innovation zone" program is organized. Students tackle high school concepts at very high levels, all through the lens of authentic, problem-based learning within the STEAM lens. They also potentially earn college credits in courses taught by University of Kentucky faculty, undergraduate and graduate students.

There are no entrance requirements, and students are chosen by lottery.

FCPS online application -- The window typically is Aug. 15 to Oct. 7 for the following school year. It's not a first-come, first-served system. Applications may be submitted anytime during the window, and all receive equal consideration.

What makes our school special

Students have the opportunity to learn high school skills and concepts within authentic contexts of their choice under the STEAM umbrella. They receive an individualized, problem-based learning experience supported by intense use of technology as a learning tool.

Students also focus on developing critical workplace skills such as collaborating effectively as a team member, creatively solving complex problems, communicating effectively and appropriately, and thinking critically.
