The STEM Institute at Newton College and Career Academy is a premier program that incorporates project-based learning through a unique flexible scheduling environment. Our program serves over 185 students from 9th-12th grade that come from the three area high schools: Alcovy, Eastside and Newton. The STEM focus areas for our program are biotechnology and engineering, where we provide students with state-of-the-art labs and facilities that allow them to create, design, and develop ideas based on their individual interests.
Our F.L.E.X. (Fueling the Learning and Educational eXperience) days allow students to turn traditional classrooms into collaboration spaces where they can concentrate their efforts on working with whom they need, where they need, and on what they need. This unique learning style, not found anywhere else in Georgia, teaches time and project management as well as collaboration skills required to be competitive in the 21st century job market. Additionally, it gives our students a competitive edge when entering college as they will already be prepared for the workload, rigor, and time management necessary to be successful.

Project Based Learning
"STEM may stand for science, technology, engineering, and math, but it goes much deeper than that here at NCCA. Everyone in this program is her for a specific reason aside from being interested in healthcare, engineering, or agriculture. We're all in STEM because we know we have the capability of coming together and making a name for not only ourselves, but for our school. We help each other grow each and everyday in order to harness the potential, bother academic and personal, of each and every associate. Our goal is to keep accomplishing the unthinkable, because
WE ARE STEM and WE DON'T STOP!!"
