St. Anthony High School Fully Integrates STEAM Focused Curriculum
2016-08-10 · By Editor
St. Anthony High School (SAHS) has enhanced its fall course offerings as the school’s commitment to a fully integrated STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) focused curriculum expands. The new classes being offered starting in August are: Business and Finance, Exploring Art II, Fashion Studies Design and Marketing, Introduction to Psychology, Media Production and Communications, Robotics, Theater Art II, and World Geography. Each of these courses is designed to further integrate elements of STEAM into regular curriculum as a part of St. Anthony’s competitive college preparatory curriculum.
St. Anthony High School has long been viewed as a leader in technology and innovation. Schools from both inside and outside the Long Beach area routinely visit the fully wireless campus to learn from previous successes like SAHS’s fully integrated One-to-One iPad Program which equips students with the tools they need for greater success, even housing all student textbooks.
St. Anthony High School exposes students to the possibility of STEAM careers early to prepare them for and spark their interest in these fields. Students have a variety of options enabling them to tailor their education to STEAM careers through a sequence of interconnected courses meant to address problem-solving and real world applications related to a STEAM career field.
Andrea Carothers, SAHS Dean of Academics, says, “By building upon our STEAM focused curriculum we are becoming better educators who are providing a solid academic foundation, integrating real life skills for success in college and beyond”.
St. Anthony High School is a 96 year tradition in the Long Beach community, offering a competitive, co-educational college preparatory curriculum with a wealth of extracurricular activities, including athletics, community service and leadership development.
