Guided by a vision to provide the best of Catholic education with cutting edge technology and teaching practices, STVM boasts a tradition of excellence and is the only Catholic STEM-designated high school in Ohio.
STVM offers pioneering programs, including robotics, rocketry, engineering, and environmental studies and collaborates with STEM professionals at the University of Akron College of Polymer Engineering, local engineering firms, and even NASA. STVM students foster new connections and further their creativity through projects in and out of the classroom. STVM offers an extensive STEM curriculum that includes Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses, providing students the opportunity to earn college credit.
Additionally, STVM students develop a competitive edge through programs such as the nationally recognized science and rocket teams, the First Tech Challenge Robotics Team, the NASA Student Launch Challenge, and the NASA Fluid and Microgravity Research Team (which requires selection by NASA).
STVM’s on-campus learning labs include a Center for Science and Technology, outdoor garden and greenhouse, and emerging Maker Space. These facilities provide a world-class setting where students can design, prototype, build, and test their ideas while conferencing in real time with experts around the globe and allow them to be in the forefront to present their research at prestigious science fairs, including the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
