Our mission

ABOUT US

Welcome to STEAM Academy, the brainchild of teachers and practitioners who are passionate about project-based and collaborative learning, problem-solving and process-driven outcomes. We work within the International Baccalaureate and the GCSE, A Level curriculum frameworks and prepare students for the real world, university and beyond.

 

STEAM Academy prepares students for the New Ways of Working defined in the EU2020 strategy which aims to improve quality of work,  learning and productivity through social innovation in online environments. Our face-time culture is being replaced by a virtual one, as the Covid-19 pandemic takes hold.  This results in a programme which is transparent; where trust is built and which focuses on the building of skills and competence through open dialogue and creative collaboration. The ideas-driven, critical thinking and creating inherent to the IB programme and STEAM Academy learning is a natural starting point to foster innovation.

 

Several years of pedagogical experience and STEAM Academy's tried and tested Schemes of Work, passion for learning and excellent relationships with learners of all ages has created an environment in which new models of discovery can be nurtured. 

 

By believing in each individual’s unique set of gifts, we encourage learners to develop a deep fascination for learning and to nurture the critical thinking needed to channel the problems currently facing humanity and ethical decision-making. 

 

We strive to provide learners with the best possible online  experiences, not only along the Lac Leman region but nationally and internationally.

 

Our projects have been carefully designed to support student inventiveness, making STEAM Academy an ideal destination to nurture quality learning.
