This upcoming fall the first class will go through the North Bergen STEM Academy. STEM which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, will be a four-year program for high school students.
Students in the township took tests in order to see who would be admitted into the program. The academy took 10 boys and 10 girls as part of their first class. The academy will be part of the public school system, with no additional cost to the student.
The program held their welcome ceremony reception, which contested of a lab coat ceremony. Everyone in attendance was very excited for the class of 2019 to begin their journey.
