STEAM Academy High School 2015-16 Applications
Are you interested in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics? Do you like problem-solving and learning through a variety of projects and experiences? If so, then the STEAM Academy here in Lexington may be the high school for you! We are looking for motivated students who have interests in these areas as well as those who desire college and career experiences while still in high school. Our students follow an accelerated curriculum with the possibility of extending their learning off campus into real world situations and actual college courses by their junior and senior years. We are currently partnered with the University of Kentucky as well as many other local companies and colleges to help our students achieve these goals. Students attending here will learn the core high school subjects at a mastery level and use problem-based learning skills to solve a variety of design challenges along the way. We are currently accepting 8th grade student applications for the 2015-16 school year so don’t miss the window to apply!  Select the following link to apply:  https://webapps.fcps.net/spapplication/Default.asp.  This window will close on December 12, 2014.  For more information about the STEAM Academy or how to apply, please contact eric.ridd@fayette.kyschools.us
