STEM/ STREAM at MDA is a reality!
Mater Dei Academy has been awarded STEM School Designation by the Ohio Department of Education.
On March, 28th Mater Dei Academy was granted STEM designation by the Ohio Department of Education. The school is only the second Catholic school in Lake County to receive this award. This honor demonstrates that the school has provided evidence of solid and growing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) experiences across their curriculum, with the addition of Religion and Arts.
Mater Dei Academy looks forward to continuing their STEM/STREAM-focused partnerships with Lakeland Community College, Community Bus Service, Wickliffe Forever and Progressive Insurance while preparing for collaboration with other business and community groups.
STEM learning promotes a rigorous and diverse project-based curriculum with the goal of preparing students for college and the workforce; relationships with local businesses allow for authentic STEM experiences while higher educational partnerships ensure students are prepared for college and careers. A STEM-based curriculum offers real-life situations to help students learn through problem-solving, inquiry, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.
Mater Dei Academy is proud of its faculty, staff, students and is grateful to its partners for making this vision a reality!
