Pendergast School District is excited to provide students this FREE opportunity to participate in our STEAM Academies for the 2016-17 school year. The primary goal of our STEAM Academies is academic excellence, with a balance of science, technological literacy, engineering, and mathematics. Our students will be exposed to a program that provides a strong foundation for a child’s overall education in a challenging yet supportive environment.
