Westside Christian School is excited to announce a new focus on S.T.E.M. beginning in Fall 2021. S.T.E.M. based academics incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into daily instruction, beginning in kindergarten.
Westside Christian School’s S.T.E.M. program will provide our students a Biblical foundation to prepare them for a world that has become ever increasingly science based. We believe that science is one way that God reveals Himself to His creation and nature proclaims His attributes. As stated by Paul to the Romans, “For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God” (Romans 1:20 NLT). Our goal is to introduce S.T.E.M. to children of all ages so that they can understand and acknowledge God’s authority, which is evidenced through nature.
In addition, Westside Christian School’s S.T.E.M. program will encourage students to explore the world of science and hopefully inspire students to pursue a career in S.T.E.M. The number of S.T.E.M. based careers continues to increase substantially and will always exist. However, whether a student decides to pursue a career in S.T.E.M. or not, our goal is to ensure that our students have a scientific basis and are comfortable, never intimidated, with learning science in the future.
