We emphasize “STEAM” subject areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. These disciplines form the foundation of project-based interactive and collaborative design challenges that connect classroom learning to career preparation and 21st century skills development.

STEAM represents an interdisciplinary approach to learning the complex transferrable skills necessary for young people to possess when entering a competitive employment market. By participating in STEAM projects and activities, our students will gain a better understanding of how these five subject areas are interconnected in the real world.

Y.A.L.E. School Philadelphia gives students access to cutting edge educational technology including iPads and specialized software to foster a truly tech-integrated learning environment which when combined with powerful STEAM-based classroom activities, will help prepare them for success in high school, college, and beyond.
