 Program Overview

STEAM is a specialized program at Neil McNeil that focuses on enrich​ed learning opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. An emphasis on creativity and technology is embedded across the curriculum. STEAM has been developed for students 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 that promotes deep exploration of key concepts in real-world contexts. STEAM enables students to make connections between their learning and their world.  The goal of STEAM Education is to prepare students for post-secondary study and the 21st century workforce. 

STEAM is grounded in a rigorous school-based curriculum with many opportunities for unique hands-on learning. This program exists within the framework of Neil McNeil’s rich tradition of strong academics, excellent athletics, and an outstanding fine arts program in music, drama, 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.  In Grade 12, they  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.
