STEM Preparatory Academy
STEM Preparatory Academy was Nashville's first dedicated "STEM school" and opened its doors in July 2011. STEM Prep is a middle and high school dedicated to delivering a rigorous, college preparatory education with a specialized focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. By cultivating a community of learning and academic excellence, STEM Prep will bolster the number of underrepresented students who successfully complete advanced level secondary coursework and attain college degrees.
In steadfast support of our students and families, STEM Preparatory Academy is founded upon and firmly committed to three core beliefs. These core beliefs underpin STEM Prep's design and daily execution of our mission.
- Every child deserves a rigorous, college preparatory education delivered by highly effective teachers.
- A culture of accountability and high expectations develops learners and leaders.
- Excellent schools are deeply and broadly tied to the communities they serve.
STEM Preparatory Academy serves Southeast Nashville, particularly 5th through 9th grade students residing in the Glencliff and McGavock school clusters.
