Engineering, Innovation, and Design
The Engineering Innovation and Design Programs at St. Joseph High School encourage students to explore, research, and use tools to uncover or build something new. These courses are not just for the mathematically talented! Each course enhances student creativity, communication, and analytical problem solving skills. Cadets take advantage of ever-advancing technology in six Engineering Innovation and Design courses which inspire technology-centered, hands-on, inquiry-based learning. Students will have consistent opportunities to use design mindset, learn collaboratively, practice task-management, and cultivate teamwork, communication, and critical-thinking skills.
Partnership with Milestone C
In 2018, St. Joseph High School announced a partnership with the professionals of Milestone C that has enhanced our STEM-related courses, added additional electives, and continued after-school programming in Robotics and Aeronautical Engineering. The new partnership is part of a larger strategy to propel St. Joes to the leading edge of STEM education using industry-grade experts and resources.
Classes in the sciences and technology will work in dynamic, cross-functional teams in conditions that mimic real-world practice and application. The primary objective of these project-based programs will be to get students comfortable with problem-solving without a single “correct” answer.

Innovation, Design, Engineering, Applications (IDEA)
Specifically for freshmen, this course introduces students to technology-centered, hands-on, inquiry-based learning. Students have repeated opportunities to use design mindset, learn collaboratively, practice task-management, and cultivate teamwork, communication, and critical-thinking skills.
This course encourages students to build confidence while building drones! The unique, hands-on program introduces STEM education, experiential learning, and student engagement designed to empower and motivate all students. St. Joes is proud to use flight simulators for these courses.
