The STEM Innovation Academy of Orange
The STEM Innovation Academy of the Oranges is a highly innovative program spanning grades 9-14. The Academy exemplifies an early college model whereby students from Grade 9 on navigate through a six-year scope and sequence of high school and college coursework. This approach would allow students, while completing their high school graduation requirements, to earn college credits toward a degree in one of three majors -- Computing Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, or Biomedical Engineering. The New Jersey Institute of Technology has agreed to accept the Academy’s credits.
