Asheville, North Carolina, is a city known for the arts. The River Arts District, in particular, is known as a creative outlet for locals, but there's also no shortage of science and engineering.
From Asheville's gothic-style architecture in downtown to The Biltmore Estate's remarkable beauty, Asheville is the perfect example of what it means to be a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) city.
For parents searching for a STEAM-based education in a Christian environment, Emmanuel Lutheran is the first and only Christian parochial school in western North Carolina to implement a STEAM-based curriculum.
We are able to provide parents and students with this important curriculum combined with theology, emphasis on the gospel and within a positive Christ-centered environment.
STEAM is an educational movement that combines science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics to cultivate critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. Additionally, STEAM is implemented in the classroom to help students prepare for a workforce that is increasingly dominated by occupations related to these fields with the inclusion of creativity and collaboration.
In fact, students' test scores and performance have increased as a result of reintroducing the importance of the arts.
STEAM education begins in kindergarten, with STEAM projects that build on the previous year's. Students will be about to experience and establish their processes as they work in groups to solve challenges.
This process helps students with subjects like Robotics, drones, 3D imaging, and other types of technology used to connect all of the traditional themes and subjects more excitingly! Here are some ways in which students at Emmanuel Lutheran can benefit from a STEAM education:
At Emmanuel Lutheran School, our mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and prepare students to become well-rounded individuals in faith and academics. STEAM helps us accomplish our mission by demonstrating the ability to think critically, solve challenging problems, and be creative with which God created us, the world, and the universe.
Furthermore, being the only Christian parochial school in our area, we have seen how a STEAM-based curriculum combined with the gospel helps students significantly improve academically.
