TUXEDO, N.Y. – The Tuxedo STEM Academy at George F. Baker High School is hosting a student open house Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 9-11 a.m. and 5-7 p.m. for students outside its district who wish to attend on a tuition basis.
It's the only high school in the region with a 100 percent Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) infused curriculum. It serves students in grades 7-12 and is part of the nationally recognized Tuxedo Union Free School District.
The open house will feature tours, a presentation and opportunities to meet with faculty, administrators and students. Multi-year scholarships are available for students based on academic achievement, and annual tuition is less than most area private schools.
A second open house will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 10, from 5-7 p.m.
“The future of education lies with successful STEM preparation,” said Interim Superintendent Nancy Teed. “To be able to fully integrate a STEM curriculum in a nurturing, small school environment gives students tremendous advantages in their academic careers. There is no other model in the region like ours.”
The district has received nationally recognized rankings, including US News and World Report and Newsweek. In addition to working daily with state-of-the-art technology, including take-home HP Chromebooks for all students, the Tuxedo STEM Academy at George F. Baker High School also is home to competitive interscholastic sports teams and a music and fine arts program. The district also offers a K-6 program at its George Grant Mason School for families interested in beginning a STEM infused education on the elementary level, also on a tuition basis.
To learn more and RSVP, call the STEM Academy Admissions Office at 845-351-4799.
George F. Baker High School is Route 17 in Tuxedo Park.
