Nationally, only 62% of students with disabilities graduate high school. At STEM3 Academy, 100% of our students graduate with either a diploma or certificate. But what comes next?
Between 80 and 90% of those with special needs are under or unemployed, a number that has an immense social and financial cost to the individuals themselves, to their families and to the state. An avowed goal of STEM3 Academy is to take deliberate, practical steps to change that outcome for all of our students. We are preparing our students for meaningful employment, rich fulfilling lives full of promise, and to make their mark on society in their chosen way. We are graduates students who can stand side by side with other members of society, participating to the same degree and with the same possibilities open to them.
