S.T.E.A.M. at Duchesne

To fulfill the Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart education and to prepare students for the 21st Century, Duchesne Academy commits to the use of technology as an educational tool to prepare students to live cooperatively in a global and technological society.

STEAM is curriculum-based with an interdisciplinary and applied approach to educating students across multiple disciplines that include Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Our students develop artistic, communication, intellectual, and leadership skills to solve global and humanitarian challenges that face our world.

The Duchesne Academy DREAM (Duchesne Research Engineering Art Media) Lab opened in the Fall of 2016. The area is designed around the maker space principles. It is open generally to all students 9-12. Currently, eight classes utilize the lab space as home including Design Academy I and II, Digital Photography, Journalism, Yearbook, AP Computer Science Principles, Interior Design, and Intro to Programming.  Additionally, STEAM curriculum is woven throughout numerous classes that take place outside the physical space of the lab.
