STEAM is a teaching philosophy that centers the educational model around the student rather than creating a boxed program to which the student must conform. The learning is student directed through inquiry, and the teacher steps back into a coaching role to support the students’ ideas.
STEAM is process driven instead of product driven, which means that students attempt to solve a problem, discover what is not working, redesign the solution, and repeat that process until the desired result is reached
This philosophy promotes self-discover, builds inquiry and invention, and elevates self-esteem-all elements missing in the traditional educational model. Florida State Christian Academy is blessed to have Master’s level Science and Technology experts using cutting-edge innovation to lead our team of talented teachers and students into the future of education.
We are always mindful of our student experience and the quality of education that they receive. We keep our teacher to student ratio to approximately 1:22. We have custom class arrangements upon request.
Maintaining a positive working environment is derived from the culture and atmosphere that we nurture at our company.
At Florida State Christian Academy we provide our families affordable before and aftercare services.
