The goal of the STEAM Academy at Henry Hudson Regional School is to ensure that students graduate with the knowledge and experience necessary to prepare them for future study and careers in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.  Beyond fulfilling state graduation requirements, the Academy affords students the opportunity to specialize in a field of their interest. All students who fulfill the outlined requirements will receive an endorsement on their diploma.

  • Students entering 9th grade will be selected for the STEM & STEAM Academies on the basis of past academic performance, standardized testing scores, academic potential,  and teacher recommendation.

  • STEM and STEAM Academy students are expected to participate in one or more extracurricular activity related to their specialty such as science club, robotics competition, health careers club, Skills USA, technology club, theater management, academic competitions, concert band, marching band, A cappella Choir and ARTE club.

  • Students are expected to maintain a minimum of a “B-” (80) average in order to receive endorsement on their transcript.
