Academic Excellence / STREAM

STEM + Religion + the Arts = STREAM

STEM Education emphasizes the progression of interdisciplinary studies in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math; STREAM EDUCATION also incorporates the creativity and expression of the Arts, as well as Religion as integral components of a 21st century Catholic education. The combination of these subjects leads our students to the fullness of truth.

  • Lessons based on STREAM principles promote a higher level of critical thinking skills and a deeper understanding of content materials because concepts are reinforced across multiple subject areas.
  • STREAM activities are hands-on; projects based, and have a relevant application in the real world.
  • It inspires teachers to include and develop 21st century instructional strategies at every grade level.
  • STREAM takes learning outside the traditional classroom experience through customized field trips and dynamic, interactive outreach programming in collaboration with community partners.


"Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes."
