DR. R.W. GOINES STEM ACADEMY

At the Dr. R.W. Goines S.T.E.M. Academy we couple a rigorous, S.T.E.M.-infused curriculum with a Christ-centered environment.  Here, project based learning is implemented to engage students in critical thinking and problem solving daily.

 

In order to achieve this goal, teachers work together to design projects that address the needs of the surrounding community, thus making learning relevant to our students.

OUR MISSION & PRINCIPLES

Mission – To prepare students to be Christocentric and academically excellent; to expand and impact their spheres of influence.

 

Lift – Lift up the name of Jesus in word and works.

 

Laugh – Having fun in the process.

 

Love – Showing love towards one another.

 

Learn – Through a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

WHAT IS STEM?

“The United States has developed as a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers, and innovators. In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information.

 

These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM.” – U.S. Department of Education
