The Everest Academy STREAM summer program offered students in kindergarten through eighth grade several opportunities for a fun, club environment. Everest Academy launched its co-curricular STREAM program in January 2018 which offers a comprehensive approach to shaping the minds of students and preparing them for next-generation skills. STREAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, and is an expansion of the STEM movement in education.

The new program was launched with an after-school club program in the spring of 2018. This year’s summer program offered students the opportunity to participate in four different age-appropriate program offerings.

The Blessed Pier Young Mountain Climbers Club for students in kindergarten through second grade offered the opportunity to enjoy art, gardening, and cooking while learning all about virtues and various Bible stories. Students enjoyed learning about creation, Jonah, Noah and St. Joseph. They went on a creation walk, planted vegetables and herbs, painted, and much more.

Students in third through eighth grade had three program options: the St. Isidore of Seville Coding Club, the St. Daniel Escape Room, and the St. Catherine of Bologna Oil Painting program. Through these programs students built apps, controlled robots, solved puzzles, and learned the basics of painting on canvas and drawing.

Many thanks to our teachers who taught each program and made the first STREAM summer program a success!
