At Nazareth, we take studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) to a new level with STREAM: STEAM + Religion = STREAM. We have revamped the STEAM initiative to include an emphasis on the religious traditions upon which we were founded in 1928.
NAHS STREAM Initiative
Nazareth Academy High School's STREAM program creates awareness, sparks interest, builds confidence, and fosters a culture of innovation in girls while integrating our Catholic identity into every aspect of the curriculum. It is important to note that STREAM education is not a new curriculum at NAHS, but it is a philosophical framework for delivering excellence in Catholic education for the 21st century learner.
In line with our commitment for feeding the ever-evolving interests of our girls, we have begun the process of creating a Makerspace in which students can utilize advanced technology in a designated lab. The Makerspace will allow students to become involved in more hands-on projects where problem solving, collaboration, and the results of their efforts make lessons more relevant than a textbook alone.
Extracurricular activities at Nazareth such as Robotics and Rocketry offer hands on, engaging activities in which students can apply STREAM learning. For example, each year our Rocketry program competes in the Team America Rocketry challenge, the world's largest student rocket contest in Washington, D.C. Last year, Nazareth Academy High School was the only Philadelphia high school to qualify for this event.
