Expand STEM Opportunities at Your School — Join us on Wednesday, 6/8 at 5:00

The STEM Advanced Placement Access Expansion Opportunity, designed to give students greater access to AP® STEM courses, is currently enrolling students for 2022-2023. The effort is a partnership between DESE and online course provider VHS Learning and is funded by a U.S. Department of Education grant. The program prioritizes schools that traditionally have not had the capacity or resources to offer AP STEM classes and, within those schools, students who have been historically underrepresented in STEM. Participating high schools can offer online AP® STEM courses free to students courses through a paced asynchronous format that offers flexibility while still requiring frequent interactions with classmates and the teacher.

Over 1,050 of the available seats have been committed; approximately 250 seats remain. If you have not already, please join us on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 5:00 to learn how to bring this opportunity to your students. Interested students and parents are welcome to join. Schedule a meeting with Jennifer Gwatkin , to bring this program to your school for the upcoming school year. Registration closes June 30th.
