STEM Academy Overview

 

To continue the goal of being a district with leading-edge learning experiences, the AISD has partnered with the University of Texas at Arlington for a new STEM Academy – science, technology, engineering and math.  Students will have the opportunity to earn high school and college credits from the UT Arlington along four pathways – engineering, biology/biomedical science, computer science and math/science. The program debuted at Martin High School in fall 2015 with about 100 ninth graders from across the district, and 100 students will be added each year until the program enrolls about 400 students across grades 9-12. There are no fees associated with being a part of the STEM Academy.

 

Students in the STEM Academy will have a chance to complete 21-32 hours in their college major at UT Arlington prior to high school graduation. Students will also be able to advance their STEM education outside the classroom as well, with opportunities such as internships, mentorships, job shadowing, community service, enrichment programs and a summer learning opportunities. Students selected for the STEM Academy will enjoy all the benefits of being a high school student at Martin High School including participation in fine arts, sports, clubs and organizations.
