    STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics - is the broad umbrella for how the curriculum in this new "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.

  • STEAM J-Term 2018

    STEAM is excited to announce that upon returning from winter break, all STEAM students will participate in an enrichment experience called J-Term (January Term). For the first 8 days of the spring semester, all teachers will offer unique classes for our students. Offerings ranging from arts to practical living to academic preparation will challenge students and provide important experiences in critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and leadership.

    Students now have access to view the course descriptions for 2018 J-Term. Students will sign up in their advisories on Tuesday (Seniors & Juniors) and Thursday (Sophomores & Freshmen) to fill the four-block J-term school day. All students will be at STEAM all day (Internships don’t start until 1/15) so everyone will be signing up to fill all four blocks. Dual-credit classes will start on 1/8, and enrolled students will be excused from J-Term activities to attend these classes. J-Term classes will not count for academic credit. The following link is visible through your Fayette County Google account.

    Some classes run for a two-block duration. If you sign up for a class that runs for blocks 1-2 or 3-4, you will remain in that class for both blocks. Please pay careful attention to this when choosing your schedule.

    During J-Term we will also be having Drop Everything And Read every day. Please plan ahead if you have something you would like to read; otherwise teachers will have books for you to chose from. You will not be allowed to read on a screen or smart device. 

    For additional information, visit the J-Term 2018 page.
