"The STEM Academy is based on both classroom and experiential learning to provide a very well-rounded educational experience." - Dr. Solter
"The STEM Academy is based on the students' talents and academics. The application process is fair and transparent, and the students truly earn their place among the best and brightest North Bergen has to offer. Our graduating class includes a full Bachelor-to-Doctoral program student at Seton Hall University." - Mayor Sacco
Other graduates of STEM Academy have been accepted to some of the best colleges and universities in the country.
