What is STREAM?
STREAM is rooted in our faith as a Catholic school. “Religion” is found in all our subject areas and completes our view of a comprehensive Catholic education. SJA, as a STREAM school, uses an interdisciplinary approach that bridges science, technology, religion, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
It is important to note that STREAM is a philosophical framework that provides for a cross-curricular approach that enables students to “connect” what they are learning throughout their studies.
Points to Consider
STREAM makes learning relevant because it allows academic concepts to be “joined” together to create real-life applications. It focuses on the “why are we learning this?” question.
STREAM emphasizes interdisciplinary connections. In the real world, knowledge needed is not experienced in isolation, it is layered. It requires deeper understanding across specific disciplines.
