SCHS to host 49er STEM Leadership Institute and Chevron STEM Zone

Bruin Community,

It is with great pride that I'm announcing that SCHS will be the home school for the upcoming 49ers STEM Leadership Institute.  This program will feature a large-scale fabrication lab on our campus called the Chevron STEM Zone, and we will host a cohort of students (60 students per grade level) that will go through a six-year STEM Leadership Institute from 7th grade through 12th grade.  The primary financial backers of this STEM project are the 49ers and Chevron, and our educational liaison in this effort is the Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF). 

Many people were involved in the decision to bring this STEM initiative to SCHS, and I want to thank the groups that helped us get to this point.  District leaders and I have been working closely with SVEF as well as representatives of both the 49ers and Chevron as we made this decision and began to plan out what this will look like both from a physical and pedagogical point of view.  We have excellent partners in this large endeavor.

The actual academy will start here at SCHS in 2016-2017, and that first cohort of 60 students is currently in 7th grade at Cabrillo Middle School.  There are a lot of details that I am going to be sharing with you about the program in the coming months and years, especially how the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute and Chevron STEM Zone will affect all of our students, not just those in the cohorts. 

This is a major win for us.  It is a great day to be a Bruin. 


Gregory Shelby

Principal, SCHS
