About SEM

Curriculum Overview


    Our goal is to prepare graduates to attend top engineering programs and ultimately, enter STEM careers.  Our approach is an accelerated mathematics program to put in place the building blocks of engineering.  This allows our students to then spend 11th/12th grades focused on our broad science and engineering curriculum.
