STREAM Curriculum

What Is STREAM?

S.T.R.E.A.M is the acronym that describes an integrated learning model which includes Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. STREAM builds on the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum by adding religion and the arts. The STREAM model of educating our students has the strong support and encouragement of the Office of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
