STEM Cohort

Concordia Academy’s STEM Cohort provides a significant step towards preparing Christians to take the lead in advanced fields of science, technology, engineering, math, and medicine. The program consists of the following components:

  • A rigorous curriculum path that includes the equivalent of 4 years of mathematics and 5 years of science (Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the above courses.)
  • An internship or job shadow with a STEM company*
  • A senior research project and paper designed for and entered into competition through the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair
  • Presentation to a panel of teachers and invited guests of research project results
  • A year-end celebration recognizing the graduating cohort

Successful completion of the above results in a STEM transcript certification and Honors Convocation recognition during the candidate’s senior year.

*Past STEM Cohort internship locations include the following:

  • Conestoga-Rovers & Associates
  • US Fish and Wildlife Service
  • Grand Avenue Natural Medicine Center
  • Methodist Hospital
  • University of Minnesota Department of Engineering
  • TDKA Engineering
