STEAM classes at SJP are integrative experiences that push students to learn through multiple lenses and from a variety of academic perspectives. By design, the classes are hands-on courses that give students exposure to real-life problems where the correct answer is the one they have just created. Students complete projects from the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math (STEAM) and are encouraged to take risks and experiment with new ideas.

All sophomores at SJP take STEAM II, a project-based, group work oriented course taught with a student-centered approach. After sophomore year, students may select from a variety of STEAM electives. In past years, these electives have incorporated an exciting breadth and depth of study, from cryptography, architecture, and typography to mosaic design, photography, and 3D rendering.

In the spring of each school year, student projects are showcased at the annual STEAM Show, a comprehensive gallery featuring work from all STEAM Department classes.
