S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Integrating the arts and sciences fuels students’ natural curiosity and cultivates their God-given desires to explore, create, and learn. S.T.E.A.M. education prepares our students to become tomorrow’s pioneers in the fields of science technology, and creative expression.
At The City School, S.T.E.A.M. begins in Pre-K. At the earliest ages, our students are taught to connect classroom learning with fun, hands-on projects. At the Fairmount and Spruce Hill campuses, students have access to dedicated S.T.E.A.M. workshops. Three time a week they explore how art and science come together in what they’re learning in class.
At the Walnut Street campus, students investigate S.T.E.A.M. through partnerships with local organizations like The Science Center and Clay Mobile. Rittenhouse students have advanced art and science courses and can pursue science-art integration through unique electives like Sew Analytical, an enrichment class that teaches students how creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and math converge through the art of sewing.
For too long women and racial minorities have been underrepresented in the sciences. As a school that celebrates the beautiful diversity of our city, we are committed to making S.T.E.A.M. accessible to all young learners.
