“We will always have STEAM with us. Some things will drop out of the public eye
and will go away,but there will always be science, engineering, and technology” 

– Katherine Johnson

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.

The Fab Lab Connect Program

St. Joseph High School has also been selected as one of 80 international members of the Fab Lab Connect Network. Emerging from MIT’s Center for Bits & Atoms Fab Lab Program, the SJHS Fab Lab Connect Program will provide a platform for education and innovation using technology and digital fabrication. Students will make (almost) anything and have opportunities to improve lives of people both locally and globally.
