  • Family Night: Fayette County Schools

    FCPS and Crossroads Church have partnered to invite Reggie Dabbs, national motivational speaker to talk with students to encourage them and to remind the youth that they matter. Transportation, dates, and times are scheduled for schools to attend the event. STEAM Academy will attend on Monday, January 13, 10:00 am-11:30 am at IAKSS, Norsworthy Auditorium. Because this is the first day of classes for students on the BCTC Campus, only students and staff on the Johnson Street campus will attend the event. Students received permission slips in their advisory class yesterday. 
     
    Turn around time to return permission slips is quick, therefore, we are linking the field trip permission form in the event your student has misplaced the form. There will be a slight change in our school schedule so that students will have the opportunity to each lunch, attend their afternoon classes  at STEAM and the tech schools. 
     
     
    FCPS is also hosting a Family Night at Crossroads Church, 4128 Todds Road for families to hear Mr. Dabbs speak. If you are planning to attend the presentation we ask that you wear a STEAM Academy t-shirt to show your support to STEAM. If you do not have a STEAM t-shirt, no worries. Come and listen to one of the most powerful motivational speakers in education. 
     
    Please go to: http://reggiedabbsonline.com/ to view Mr. Dabbs website.  We encourage you to watch the video that is on the front page of his website.

  • Permanent home in the works

    Extensive renovations are underway on the former Imani Baptist Church at 1555 Georgetown Rd., which the Fayette County Board of Education voted in December 2017 to purchase as a permanent home for STEAM Academy. The school board receives monthly updates on the progress. The district expects about 600 students from the STEAM Academy and some 80 in the unrelated and 2018-launched Success Academy to move into the building, tentatively in January 2021.
