Technology and STEAM

State-of-the-art technology engages students across the curriculum.  Our rapidly expanding STEAM Program prepares students to be leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  With a STEAM Program linked to major academic and research universities in New York City, SJHS offers a solid academic program enhanced by unique experiences for young women interested in this growing field.

The iPad 1:1 Program

In fall 2017, SJHS will offer new opportunities for teaching and learning with The iPad 1:1 Program. Guided by our talented faculty, students will travel beyond the traditional classroom and engage in interactive, project-based learning across the curriculum.
