ECR STEAM is STEAM for ALL Students

In an increasingly connected world, where colleges and employers value multiple skills such as communication, creativity, and critical thinking, STEAM provides an avenue to integrate these areas in a meaningful curriculum. 

The STEAM Program at ECR is designed to be open and accessible for all students. By taking courses within a STEAM pathway, students graduate with a specialization similar to choosing a major in college. The pathways are as follows:

  • Technology & Engineering
  • Medical Sciences
  • Environmental Science

Program Requirements

Students may take courses at the level that’s right for them (College Prep, Honors, AP). There is no application process. All students are welcome. You may register into the program during class enrollment with counselors.
