The STEM Academy at

We believe students need access to real-world hands-on learning experiences to develop the knowledge, skills and Christian character necessary to thrive in school and on any career path they take.

Students enrolled in the STEM Academy at Shoreland develop in-demand skills such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration and communication – while experiencing the wonders of God’s creation.

Through our Project Lead The Way (PLTW) curriculum pathways in computer science, engineering and biomedical science, students engage in hands-on activates, projects, and problems; solve challenges; and reimagine how they see themselves.

PLTW Computer Science

The PLTW Computer Science interdisciplinary courses engage students in compelling computer science challenges. As students work together to design solutions, they learn more than just how to code, developing computational thinking and communication skills for our increasingly technology-based economy.

PLTW Biomedical Science

PLTW Biomedical Science introduces high school students to medicine and human body systems, as well as the wide array of biomedical science careers. Throughout the program, students take on the same challenges as biomedical
science professionals, preparing them for careers in medical and health-related fields. Learn More

PLTW Engineering

PLTW Engineering empowers high school students to step into the role of an engineer and adopt a problem-solving mindset. Students engage in collaborative activities like working with a client to design a home, programming electronic devices or robotic arms, and exploring algae as a biofuel source. Learn More

The Building Blocks of PLTW’s Curriculum

PLTW’s instructional design centers on hands-on, real-world activities, projects, and challenges that help students apply the knowledge and skills they develop in the classroom to everyday life.

This approach provides students with unique opportunities to work collaboratively, build communications skills, persevere through challenges and find unique solutions.

The PLTW program empowers students to explore career paths and lead their own learning.

“I’ve known people who really didn’t like their professions and have had a tough time,” said Fee, now a senior. “I really looked to my future and knew that whatever I did, I would want it to be something I would enjoy. The only way to get there, to open up plenty of opportunities, was to do well in school.” Read his story
