Lamad Academy - A Different Kind of Academic Focus
Updated: Jun 1, 2021
The STEM difference
Lamad Academy is dedicated to inspiring students to succeed no matter where their dreams and aspirations take them. We offer an education that focuses on advanced mathematics, science, and other STEM-related subjects. Our objective is to raise scientifically-trained, technically-skilled students who can achieve in the jobs of tomorrow.
Perhaps you’ve heard about a STEM curriculum before, but you don’t really understand how it’s applied. What do we mean when we say our school is STEM-focused? How do we incorporate subjects like math, science, and technology into other subjects we teach, such as writing and social studies?
We explain the Lamad Academy academic philosophy and practice.
What Is STEM education?
STEM education focuses on four core areas: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, which means these core subjects are integrated into all academics for a cohesive learning approach. The STEM approach also emphasizes real-world applications so that students learn how these disciplines work in different fields.
Why STEM education matters
The true purpose of STEM education is to prepare today’s students for the jobs and careers of tomorrow. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that demand will be high in certain fields, such as computers, engineering, life sciences, and math. STEM fields are expected to grow 8% by the year 2029 (compared to 3.7% among other occupations).
Examples of STEM jobs
A STEM education prepares students for a variety of fields within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Let’s look at some of them so you have a better idea of the types of careers your child might be able to pursue.
STEM approach at Lamad Academy
At Lamad Academy, our approach includes integrating math and science into every subject we teach. This allows our young scholars to make natural connections between these subjects and real life.
Our academics include:
Engineering & Technology
Our approach to learning and life
Lamad Academy believes in developing scholars who love learning. We focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects so that our students are prepared for jobs that will be in demand in the future. This philosophy pushes us to integrate STEM subjects into every facet of our education.
