Bright Futures at STEM Magnet Academy

Bright Futures at STEM Magnet Academy

The 2019-2020 school year is shaping up to be the best yet at STEM Magnet Academy of Pointe Coupee. We have welcomed over 200 new students to our campus. We are striving each and every day to ensure that we are giving our students every possible opportunity for a “bright” future. 

We have partnered with Louisiana State University (LSU) to expand our Introduction to the Engineering STEM pathway and add two additional STEM pathways: Digital Design and Emergent Technology and Biomedical Sciences. These pathways provide high school students with the opportunity to enroll in a specialized progression of project-based courses. These courses will better prepare students to seek a STEM degree in college or enter the STEM workforce with the essential knowledge and skills.

We have also partnered with LSU to expand our dual enrollment opportunities. High school students now have to opportunity to directly earn up to 35 college credit hours free-of-charge. Our current dual enrollment offerings include:

  • 6 Credit Hours in Math
  • 6 Credit Hours in English
  • 12 Credit Hours in History
  • 5 Credit Hours in Engineering
  • 6 Credit Hours in Psychology.

The expansion of our AP (Advanced Placement) courses will also allow students to earn up to 36 hours of additional college credit hours if they score a 3 or higher on the AP exam in the spring. The amount of credit hours awarded varies by university.

We are building bright futures at STEM Magnet Academy!
