In the Fall of 2009, The Seton Keough High School began offering an exciting new STEM curriculum partnering with St. Agnes Hospital, the Knott Foundation, the France-Merrick Foundation, and local engineering firms.
In addition to offering a full compliment of science courses, Seton Keough offers two STEM programs: an engineering/computer science program and the PLTW® Biomedical Science program. Both begin in freshman year with an introductory course and culminate in senior year with a final research project. All classes are taught in Seton Keough’s state-of-the-art engineering and biomedical labs.
Seton Keough is working with Project Lead the Way, a non-profit organization that promotes the study of science and technology in middle and high schools. Project Lead the Way provides specific curriculum components and professional development for teachers.
