What exactly is the STEAM Academy?
What is STEAM and how is it different from STEM education? And just what is the STEAM Academy?

Chenango Forks, after some initial research, found that the P-Tech program, which was born in NYC, could be enhanced in both its scope and application.  In response to this, we at Chenango Forks have developed our own School to Business model.

A program will be developed and implemented where Chenango Forks High School students will have the opportunity to have both classroom and internship opportunities as part of a program in Central New York aimed at supporting growth in local businesses and industries, as well as preparing Chenango Forks students for high-skills jobs in technology, manufacturing, healthcare and media.

Chenango Forks High School, in cooperation with local businesses and industries, will provide a trained entry-level work force capable of supporting the productivity of specific businesses and industries in Central New York while at the same time encouraging these students to stay in Central New York.
