We are very excited to announce that the STEAM program is being introduced at Neil McNeil for the first time in September of 2019!  STEAM will take the place of a long-standing enrichment program at Neil, the MSE Program.


The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program, with an additional focus on creativity within technology i.e (STEAM) - has been developed for students who enjoy and excel in the subject areas of Math, Science and Technology and who welcome the challenge of working in an enriched classroom environment with other like-minded students.  STEAM students are active in a curriculum that is steeped in inquiry-based teaching which promotes comprehensive understandings of key concepts.  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are applied to real-world contexts enabling students to make connections between their learning and their world.  The goal of the STEAM Education is to prepare students for post-secondary study and the 21st Century workforce.


This STEAM program exists within the framework of Neil McNeil’s rich tradition of strong academics, excellent athletics and an outstanding fine arts program in music and visual arts.




Students move together in Grades 9, 10 and 11 as a class in the four core areas of Math, Technology, Science, and English.  STEAM students in Grade 12 may select courses based on the requirements of their chosen post-secondary programs of study.  Acceptance into the STEAM program indicates a firm commitment to the program.




STEAM is grounded in rigorous school-based curriculum with many opportunities for unique hands-on learning.
