Through a comprehensive structure that includes representation from high growth industries and partnerships with K-12 communities, the LI STEM Hub is creating initiatives to align business needs with educatnal delivery through:
Housed within existing schools, Career Academies teach academic subjects with industry specific examples at no added cost.

Career academies are a proven method of delivering academic subjects within an industry theme.
Known as the new three R’s:
Rigorous academics for every level of student,
Relevancy in curriculum through industry examples,
Relationship with the employer community.

Well researched that students who participate in programs that bring academic relevance like that of a career academy greater engagement, increased test scores, graduation and persistence rates, and a deeper level of understanding of content.
Provide an effective means for businesses to engage with the academic community. Several of our Long Island schools have multiple career academies.

We believe Career Academies are one of the most effective tools we can use for building our STEM workforce.
