  • The Next Level at STEAM Academy

    The Next Level at STEAM Academy highlights the partnership of FCPS and BCTC with students who are taking college courses daily on the BCTC/UK campus. STEAM juniors and seniors are attending classes every day just like any other college student. They are truly college students while still in high school. They have the potential, by the time they graduate, to earn up to approximately 40 hours of college credit. Click on the image below to view our video!
