Dock announces a new STEM initiative

Curriculum enhancements at both the EC-Grade 8 and Grades 9-12 campuses will prepare students for emerging career opportunities.

Dock Mennonite Academy has announced significant enhancements to its STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) that will provide students with the skills and knowledge to help them succeed in our increasingly digital society, economy, and culture. These enhancements, which essentially double the STEM curriculum at each campus, will prepare students for emerging career opportunities in STEM-related fields.

Key components of the expanded STEM curriculum include new Computer Science courses in coding, computer systems and networks, database systems, programming languages, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and software engineering, well as the development of a STEM lab at the Grades 9-12 Campus to provide increased hands-on learning in robots, circuits, and 3D printing. Significant enhancements are also taking place at the EC-Grade 8 Campus, particularly in the Middle School STEM curriculum.

"A different person"

"One of the best decisions we’ve EVER made was to send our girls to Dock. You provide kids with a holistic and individualized education and you help them to recognize their abilities and their limitless potential. Emma (front row, far right) is a different person today than she was walking into that school in September."
