The Five E’s of learning: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate underpin the Cornerstone Christian Academy science and STEM program. In addition to foundational science skills, CCA Middle School STEM courses engage students in activities that excite and build knowledge and skills in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. Courses also empower students to develop essential skills such as problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and perseverance. Each year, CCA students will be immersed in one of the following topics:
• Medical Detectives (Forensic Science)
• App Creation (Computer Science & Data)
• Design and Modeling (Engineering)
Cornerstone Christian Academy’s Middle School STEM classes have been granted high school credit status. Students receive .5 high school elective credits for each year of STEM they complete through our partnership with Project Lead the Way.
Over the course of their Middle School career at CCA, students have the potential to earn 1.5 high school elective credits.
