A science lab, vegetable garden, prayer garden, open fields, and the Zazarino Center serve as dynamic learning spaces. Our Catholic faith is woven through all subjects and grade levels, promoting a culture of innovation and ethical action. STREAM educates students for their future, makes learning relevant, and emphasizes interdisciplinary connections.
