Navajo Academic Programs

  • Navajo is a STEAM-focused school offering 21st-century skills that prepare children for the future using critical thinking integrated through curriculum content areas.

    What is STEAM? STEAM is learning that engages all students in collaborating design thinking for real-world problem solving through science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

    Why STEAM? Ninety-three percent of STEAM occupations have wages above the national average and 80% of future jobs will require a STEAM education.

    Is STEAM right for my child? Does your child enjoy experimenting, creating or building? Our students excel in the hands-on learning philosophy a STEAM education provides.
