STEM Academy[edit]

Introduced to Kenwood High School in fall 2010, the STEM Academy is open by application for students who have an aptitude for math and science that have already been demonstrated to some degree in their academic career. These students like to solve problems, improve ideas, and think logically. Additionally, the STEM Academy student will have a sincere interest in a STEM-oriented career field, specifically in engineering, and will work well learning through hands-on activities. Students will be selected utilizing multiple criteria, including test scores, grades, career interests, and attendance.

The STEM Academy has currently partnered with Austin Peay State University to identify scholarship opportunities for STEM academy students as well as offer special consideration if they apply to the TN Governor’s School of Computational Physics (upon completion of the School, students can earn college credit hours there as well). APSU has also specially designed a summer enrichment program, SOARing with Mathematics for the STEM Academy students entering the 10th grade; as well as a Summer Science And Math Academy (SAMA) for STEM Academy students entering either 10th or 11th grade.
