Civics

In June 2012, the founder met with Rich Coley of ETS, co-author of the then just-published landmark study Fault Lines in Our Democracy, which identified a clear delineation of the profiles of voters and non-voters. In a sense, one group of citizens, those who vote, make decisions through the ballot box for another group of citizens -- those who don't vote.

The study concluded that voters are educated citizens and are civically engaged in various ways: volunteering in a
  • non-profit organization or government agency
  • civic or politcal organization
  • education- or health-related organization
As the founder believes education and civic engagement are the bedrock of society, he decided to incorporate the relevant recommendations of the study into the school's program.

STEMCivics students will be contributing members of society through their volunteer work in these organizations while in high school. Students will develop throughout their adolescent years into adults who are active participants in the democratic process.
