Future Ready

The STEM Innovation Academy embodies a vision for education our province needs more than ever – one that inspires students to be technology creators and innovators, not just technology users. We are in the middle of a once-in-a-generation digital transformation, and Alberta students can be leaders in this global shift.

Once-in-a-generation digital transformation

We are a new public charter school that is unique in Alberta. We opened our doors to grades 7-9 September 2021, and are opening the high school in August 2022.

We believe every student can be successful in STEM and should have the opportunity to learn about cutting edge science and technology topics.
