    The STEM Academy is the new, expanded academy that replaced the Academy of Engineering (AOE) beginning with the 2023-2024 school year. The STEM Academy is a Manasquan High School Academy in which students can take courses that expose them to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics. It is a “hands-on” student-centered academy designed to promote creative problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration.

    Since the 2021-2022 school year, Manasquan High School has been proud to partner with Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a national non-profit organization that empowers students in grades K – 12 with in-demand, transportable skills. Qualified Manasquan High School students will have the option to engage in college-level engineering & biomedical courses and earn college credits while still on our high school campus. These courses are taught by Manasquan High School teachers who have been certified by PLTW as adjunct faculty members for their respective PLTW courses.

    STEM Academy students may take specialized PLTW elective courses for college credit, use the Innovation Lab for personal projects, participate in field trips, as well as apply for scholarships, internships, and job-shadowing positions with local engineering or biomedical firms. Students are also challenged to apply their learning and improve their leadership skills through participation in a wide range of STEM-focused service-learning projects such as the state-wide, sustainability-focused STEAM Tank Challenge, a Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam, or other outside competition that showcases their work.
