Why Billingsville STEM Academy?
Billingsville STEM Academy, a Discovery Education STEM Network School, develops learners and leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with a focus on health science. Our students will have opportunities to participate in science outreach experiences, health sciences career activities and health-focused learning adventures.
Our Health Science magnet provides students with an overview of the health science field as they learn about the human body coupled with health and wellness.
We will connect the dots between learning and life to inspire and engage students with core STEM concepts allowing students to achieve today and lead tomorrow. This magnet will deliver the foundation to propel students to success in college, careers, and citizenship to meet the growing demands of a STEM skilled workforce.
We offer students the opportunity to experience hands-on instruction in a fully equipped hospital room during which allied health science professionals will serve as guides and mentors.
Our location within Charlotte’s preeminent medical corridor — just minutes away from the area’s two largest hospitals, Carolinas Medical Center and Presbyterian Hospital — gives our students access to health science professionals and cutting edge facilities to allow them to build connections between experiences in the classroom and the outside world.
