The Pennsylvania STEAM Academy
Opening in the fall of 2020, the PA STEAM Academy is the next step in the GreenWorks educational development effort. A K-8 bricks-and-mortar charter school, the school’s mission is to bring a tuition-free, effective, engaging educational experience to the city. Many more details, including an enrollment application, are available at pasteam.org.
In its first year the school will accept students in kindergarten, first and second grades. An additional grade level for each existing grade will be added each successive year. The school will eventually teach kindergarten through eighth grade. The STEAM Academy is a STEM school plus Arts. STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Class sizes will be small, at 20 students per classroom. One teacher and one teacher’s aide will instruct each classroom.
The school was founded by career educators and community leaders. The school’s founders have spent years creating the strongest curriculum possible, searching nationally for the most effective and interesting programs in each subject area.
