ETHS STEAM Academy Mission Statement:
The STEAM Academy at El Toro High School is designed for students who want a 21st century education that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math while allowing access to our other distinguished programs and extracurricular activities. Students will engage in hands-on, real-world problem solving and collaborative experiences that will prepare them for their postsecondary future aspirations.
STEAM Academy Graduation Criteria:
• Complete 2-year STEAM CTE pathway with course grades of C- or better
• Industry Certification (exams taken at end of Concentrator and Capstone)
• 1 full year of VAPA
• Take 1 full year AP course
Placement policy: STEAM students will be placed in our CTE-integrated core courses whenever possible within the confines of our master schedule. If the Guidance Department can place them in the CTE-integrated core classes, they will; if a conflict arises, the STEAM student may be placed in a non-CTE-integrated core class, and that decision is up to the Guidance Department. A STEAM student cannot take some CTE-integrated core classes but opt out of others.
