Academy Description

Skyline High School STEM courses are designed so that students have the opportunity to develop multi-cultural relationships within teams to collaboratively solve problems and to develop leadership skills. Hence, the courses not only improve the academic component of the students’ lives but also provide valuable life lessons that can be applied to solve tomorrow’s problems in the real world.

The Skyline High School STEM Academy has a unique partnership with the University of Colorado’s College of Engineering. Graduate students from this program work directly with Skyline High School faculty in course development and instruction geared towards producing tomorrow’s problem solvers. High performing students graduating from the Skyline High School STEM Academy have the ability to earn guaranteed admission into the University of Colorado’s College of Engineering.

STEM students will:

  • Utilize advanced technology and equipment in their STEM courses.
  • Investigate a wide variety of STEM related fields such as robotics, biotechnology, renewable energy & sustainable living, assistive technologies, structural engineering, biomechanical engineering, computer science, and many more.
  • Interact with professional scientists and engineers through the Skyline High School STEM Academy lecture series.
  • Design and build advanced engineering projects in St. Vrain Valley’s only Integrated Design Laboratory (IDL), in conjunction with our advanced Fabrication Laboratory (FabLab).
  • Collaborate with local businesses and industry through job shadows and internships.
  • Create an independent senior design project for presentation to, and evaluation by Skyline High School’s STEM Advisory Board and community members.
  • Earn a STEM certificate upon graduation signifying a readiness for success in post-secondary education
