The popular acronym – which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math – is widely used in the education lexicon.

Service-Learning | Shorecrest is committed to instilling a sense of social responsibility in all of our students, from our youngest three-year-olds in the Experiential School through our seniors in the Upper School. Beyond simply investing volunteer hours, Shorecrest students engage in Service-Learning – service projects are directly connected to the classroom curriculum, allowing teachers to reinforce both the community impact and the classroom concepts. At Shorecrest we don’t just count the hours, we make the hours count.
