The STEM Academy contains the Pre-Engineering and Information Technology pathways.
The mission for the STEM Academy at Grover Cleveland High School is to empower all students in the mastery of STEM skills leading to viable and attainable 21st century career options.
Here at Grover Cleveland High School, our STEM Academy has embraced the view that academic content should be taught through interdisciplinary studies. Students will be immersed in rich, meaningful, STEM experiences through interdisciplinary coursework applied in the context of the real world through business and community partnerships. Students will not only learn to apply knowledge, but they will also learn about a wide range of STEM careers, develop professional communication skills, and develop their ability to apply technology to real world situations. The Grover Cleveland High School STEM Academy will lead students to develop the skills that they will need in order to succeed in the 21st century.
Students will have opportunities to earn college credit while still in high school through our dual credit courses through LaGuardia Community College. Upon successful completion, students will receive both high school and college credit. These credits are transferable to the City University of New York (CUNY) colleges and many colleges within the state.
Courses we offer: College Algebra and Trigonometry; Elementary Statistics
College Scholarships for STEM Students New York State provides a full SUNY or CUNY tuition scholarship to the top 10 % of students in every New York high school, if they major in a STEM field and work in a STEM job in New York State for five years following graduation.
● FIRST Robotics Competition An engineering challenge for high school students. Teams of students, working closely with teachers, conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition.
● Bridge Building Competition, Science Olympiad, & Envirothon Students compete in various science competitions throughout the year. Students get a sense of what it takes to be a scientist, engineer, or mathematician by applying their knowledge on projects and activities in Citywide and Statewide competitions
