Our STREAM Mission Statement

The St. Ann Catholic School STREAM program creates  a competitive edge for our students by immersing them in a 21st century learning environment where our students

♦  learn to think creatively and critically

♦  are encouraged to inquire, seek, & investigate

♦  strive to innovate and improve. 

Students will learn the engineering design process and long-term skills that go beyond STREAM, like teamwork, collaboration, coaching, communicating, listening, empathy, public speaking, and making connections.

The STREAM difference!

Our STREAM Curriculum, based on Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards, provides an enrichment program for all students to enhance their learning experiences as they solve real world problems.  Along with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, the program also includes Arts integration and Religion. While incorporating the Catholic faith, it entrusts our teachers to guide each student to become a productive and meaningful citizen with Christ-centered values.

STREAM in the Classroom

All teachers will incorporate STREAM into their curriculum; however, students in grades 1st through 4th will attend weekly STREAM classes in the Innovation Lab.

STREAM will be a collaborative effort with our STREAM Instructor and Pre-K and Kindergartens classes.

STREAM will be a collaborative effort with our STREAM Instructor and grades 5th – 8th as well as part of their Extra classes.  

STREAM Outside the Classroom

Our STREAM program also includes a speaker series, STEM career day, and field trips. There will be two STREAM Nights, one each semester, that will include a STREAM Showcase and hands-on learning, with involvement from community partners.
