STEM Concentration

The STEM concentration caters to students who have a passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It offers an immersive experience in these fields, allowing students to engage in hands-on projects, experiments, and problem-solving activities. Students delve into subjects like advanced mathematics, computer programming, robotics, physics, and engineering design. This concentration equips students with the analytical and technical skills necessary for careers in STEM-related fields.

Senior Capstone

The program's four-year course progression culminates in the senior capstone class, STEM Inquiry and Problem Solving. Capstone students have several options for projects – an internship experience, on- or off-campus research opportunities, and/or an independent study of advanced coursework beyond what is offered at BGA. Throughout the capstone course, students will further develop their leadership and communication skills, through interacting with STEM professionals and teaching STEM lessons at our Lower School. The course culminates with students developing a portfolio of their experiences and reflecting on their motivations and goals.
