The vision of Indy STEAM Academy is to provide a high-quality educational option for parents and students. We help students become aware of the careers that are available in STEM and provide opportunities for them to learn about STEM careers through job shadowing, industry visits, and Junior Internships. Our students will take advanced coursework and will graduate high school with credits towards an Associate’s Degree, or Core 40 with STEM Honors, or a Technical High School Diploma to make sure that they receive admission to attend the college of their choice. Students from low-income families, underserved minority students, and underrepresented students like girls will learn that it is possible for them to get jobs in high-demand, high-wage STEM fields.
