Our mission is to encourage scholars to reach their full potential by providing stem focused hands-on integrative learning.
Our education philosophy is inspired by philosophers' John Dewey, learning by doing!
Our vision is to bridge the gap of enrollment in STEM fields. It is important to see more representation and expose early learners to STEM engagement.
Founded by a stem professional, turned public school educator. Stem Prep Academy is a micro-school, which aims to equip scholars to learn through stem engagement. Classrooms are personalized with one on one learning. Our small classrooms remove pressure and feelings of inadequacy from children, creating an environment where they can learn, succeed, and flourish.

Our micro school was developed with the idea that every student deserves individualized and personalized programs which interest them. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early education experience in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, which promotes each child’s creativity and technological inclination, as well as their social/emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our goal is to provide an integrative and innovative approach to early STEM education that will ensure our scholars are lifelong explorers and innovators. We serve students with special needs, and the gifted populations. A child may be advanced in one area – such as reading – and behind in another – such as math. Normal development takes place within a range, not at a specific age. Our small classrooms remove pressure and feelings of inadequacy from children, creating an environment where they can learn, succeed, and flourish.
