Welcome to the Cheverly STEM Education Center!
Now in our tenth year, we are thrilled to be offering new and exciting classes like Biomechanics, Speech & Debate, Greek & Latin Root Words, Environmental Science, Theater, Sports in Society, Organic & Biochemistry, and Take a Hike as well as standard favorites like Engineering, Biology and math, math and more math. Many of our core high school classes, (biology, chemistry, math), will meet two days/week, on both Tue and Thur.
As always, our mission is two-fold, (1) to provide courses not typically available to homeschoolers, and (2) support a unique and diverse community of learners. Although we are not a school, classes at Cheverly STEM can support the homeschool journey. Our classes are student-centered and project-based as well as academically rigorous and are taught by education specialists or professionals in their field.
Please note that Cheverly STEM is an inclusive environment and have amended our Code of Conduct this year regarding the use of preferred personal pronouns. Please be sure to review our code of conduct as part of the registration process.
Our class size is usually 12-15, some as small as 8 and some as large as 18, depending on the type of class. We will run a waitlist for any class that fills.
Our academic calendar runs September through May, divided into four 7-week quarters. Our classes meet Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 am - 3 pm with a full hour for lunch, noon-1:00. Many of our classes are cumulative in nature making them difficult to join mid-year. For these classes it is best to consider taking it for the full-year. Teacher bios and more detailed course descriptions are available on our newly updated (and still developing) website CheverlySTEM.com.
