STEM3 Academy provides an innovative K-12 curriculum for students with social and learning differences, including autism, who have a passion for STEM fields and may benefit from experiential learning approaches. STEM3 Academy is the only STEM high school in the country to offer a therapeutic residential program.

STEM3 Academy (a non-public school) offers a comprehensive and integrated college preparatory curriculum, focusing on the long-term development, strength and needs of each student. Many of these students are bright, have a passion for STEM fields and benefit from nontraditional teaching methods, such as project-based learning. At the heart of the school is an innovation lab and maker space where students are involved in diverse pursuits such as robotics, electronics, film, audio mixing, and 3D modeling and printing using a variety of high-tech equipment. Under the umbrella of The Help Group, STEM3 Academy is able to provide the time and tools that these students need to thrive.

STEM3 Academy was designed to prepare students for meaningful careers in a variety of fields, such as engineering, cyber-security, biomedical, coding, game development, accounting, web design and IT. Partnerships and mentor programs with leading businesses offer students real-world interaction and a first-hand knowledge of industries and career paths. 

STEM3 Academy is the only STEM high school in the country to offer a therapeutic residential program. The Help Group’s Project Six Residential Program is located in the San Fernando Valley within Los Angeles County. Residents reside in a dorm-like setting, complete with an art and music studio, computer lab, fitness center, indoor basketball court and a large gymnasium. 

Project Six residents experience a nurturing environment where positive and constructive feedback is integrated into a structured daily schedule. Supported by a highly skilled, compassionate and caring clinical and behavioral staff, residents are encouraged to address their individual needs in a proactive and productive manner. Each resident has a personal advisor for additional guidance and support.

On-going communication between STEM3 Academy, classroom teachers and the residential staff, as well as the availability of study skill instruction, tutoring and academic enrichment, ensure a full integration of the educational program into the residential setting.
