According to a 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Education, only 40% of high school students are  prepared to take college level science and math coursework.  Providing access to a STEAM program allows students to weave together ideas from various disciplines, think critically, be creative, and use discovery as an engine for learning. This program strives to help Saint Patrick students think deeply and be prepared to transform into future innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve challenges our world faces today and in the future. For more information or questions related to our STEAM program, please email Karyn Burkholder, STEAM Coordinator, at
