Acera offers classes in engineering, biotechnology, math, arts, theater, design, electronics, music, chemistry, physics and more. The schools hosts a full woodshop, SEEDSLab (Science, Engineering, Esthetics, Design and Story), Science Lab, and Virtual Reality studio. Collaboration with scientists, researchers, inventors, entrepreneurs, artists, programmers, designers and musicians is central to learning at Acera. From our early days, connections with thought leaders have inspired our students and teachers to create, innovate, and lead.
At Acera, we believe that deep exploration of STEAM subjects should begin early. Our hands-on learning environment allows elementary and middle school children to nurture their natural desire to inquire, create, and innovate; and experiment with content and concepts usually reserved for older students – or not introduced during K-12 school years at all.
With emphasis on critical thought, creative problem solving, and integration of content areas, our programs inspire all types of learners and thinkers. Students discover engineering, biotechnology, math, arts, theater, design, electronics, music, chemistry, physics, teamwork, friendships — and who they are: as individuals, learners, and collaborators.
