STEAM

Austin’s commitment to providing rigorous curriculum that is individualized has never been more apparent than our STEAM program. Encouraging our students to go beyond STEM (the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics), and into the STEAM, a holistic education philosophy that also embraces the arts allowing for a depth of application and understanding. Courses range in traditional subjects to team taught cross-curricular courses and also inquiry research and project based learning cohorts. Austin faculty have collaborated with STEM leaders from University of Notre Dame, University of Detroit Mercy, Engineering Tomorrow, First Robotics, and more to develop the program.
