STEAM Program


The CCHS STEAM certificate inspires learners to be agents for positive change.  We accomplish this by providing an environment encouraging learners to think critically and structure lessons emphasizing the growth of science, technology, engineering, art, math, and medicine.

Nationwide, growth in STEAM careers outpaces other occupational categories making STEAM important for future generations as occupations require problem-solving skills, innovative and creative thinking, and digital skills. The need to think critically and flexibly while adapting to a rapidly changing world becomes a vital skill set for success.

The STEAM Department establishes high expectations for all students and provides support to help them meet those expectations.
