• STE(A)M Signature Program

     APS STE(A)M Logo  

    Atlanta Public Schools (APS) is dedicated to preparing students for college and 21st century careers by providing high quality educational opportunities. APS has set as a priority ensuring students receive a rigorous and relevant learning experience through its STEM Signature Program (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The Georgia Department of Education (GADOE) defines STEM Education as an integrated curriculum that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploratory projects, problem-based learning and student-centered development of ideas and solutions.

    GADOE has established a STEM certification process to validate the quality of STEM programs across the state.  The grade-level STEM Continuums (guidelines) are available for review on this website or from the APS Office of Career, Technical and Agricultural Education.  Cognia is an international organization that awards school accreditations and STEM certifications.
