The purpose of Rowan University’s STEAM Academy is to educate and empower 21st century students in order to prepare them for a successful college and career path. We aim to provide multiple pathways to higher education for students with varying abilities and interests. We are committed to providing purposeful and engaging educational experiences as well as valuing the diversity of all students.
STEM + Art = STEAM
Rowan University’s STEAM Academy features instruction and presentations by top faculty whose
diverse curriculum better prepares students for college and career paths in one of the fastest
growing segments of today’s economy. What makes Rowan University’s STEAM Academy unique is the
pairing of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with art, design, culture
and humanities to provide an even more well-rounded experience.
Open to students entering grades 7 through 12, the STEAM Academy combines academic excellence
and engaging extracurricular activities with supportive guidance and supervision. With three
distinct program options, the STEAM Academy offers high-achieving students the opportunity to
experience college life while preparing them for their futures. Students will gain valuable
insight and practical tools that will better equip them to achieve their personal, educational
and career goals. We have recently been rated top 30 pre-college summer programs for 2019 through College Consensus.
What to Expect
With a day-only program and two different residential programs, our three-week long STEAM Academy
exposes high school students to college campus life while immersing them in STEAM-focused learning
experiences and field trips. Residential students stay in supervised, on-campus housing, dine in
Rowan’s cafeteria and at local restaurants, and enjoy our Recreation Center. Upon successful
completion of the program, residential program students earn three transferable, college-level
Rowan University credits.
