ALL ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

 Welcome to Prestige STEM Academy, where education meets inspiration! 

Our school is dedicated to providing a dynamic and nurturing learning environment for students of all ages.

Prestige Stem Academy is an academically excellent and STEM-focused college preparatory school committed to an empowering environment in which students realize their greatest creative, ethical, intellectual, and physical promise. We are defined by an energized, attentive, and diverse student-teacher culture. 


Prestige STEM Academy is a special place to grow for the challenges of a fast-changing world. As per our mission, we try to provide maximum flexibility. As such, our students are able to choose between credit vs. non-credit courses and group vs. 1-1 sessions for a comprehensive K-12 curriculum (ranging from state standard and ELD level courses to AP and competition level courses).


The school was started as an enrichment-only program in 2001 by Dr. Janet Jiang, and has grown to include credit-awarding private school classes and degree-awarding programs. Because of the schools roots, Prestige STEM Academy continues to provide enrichment based courses, but has shifted its focus towards a more traditional private school approach as well.

OUR MISSION

Prestige STEM Academy is dedicated to serving students who face challenges within the public school system. We firmly believe in addressing each student's unique situation with flexibility. While many students thrive in traditional public schools, we recognize that some require specialized attention and programming to unlock their full potential.

At Prestige STEM Academy, we offer a comprehensive education that fosters critical thinking and effective communication skills. Our commitment to flexibility ensures that each student receives tailored support to succeed within their individual circumstances.
