At our core, we know that there are many skills necessary to thrive in this world that simply cannot be formally assessed. In the era of high-stakes testing, things like music and art, engineering and design, project based learning, and large scale problem solving are disappearing from our schools at an alarming rate. We aim to bring these things back while developing new and innovative ways to teach students valuable skills, all while providing a home for students to explore new interests and talents without the stress of a test looming over their heads.
Learning should be fun. Learning should be unique to the student. Learning should be collaborative and with others that also want to learn and share and help. These are our Core Values at Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead, and why we are doing what we are doing.
Our initial vision, the Shore Enrichment Academy, has come a long way!
