Tuxedo STEM Academy to hold open house for non-district students on Jan. 20
Multi-year scholarships are available for students based on academic achievement.
TUXEDO — The Tuxedo STEM Academy at George F. Baker High School will hold a student open house on Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. for students outside its district borders who wish to attend on a tuition basis.
George F. Baker High School is the only area high school with a 100 percent Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) infused curriculum.
It serves students in grades 7-12 and is part of the nationally recognized Tuxedo Union Free School District.
The open house will feature tours, a presentation and opportunities to meet with faculty, administrators and even students.
It is part of the school district's marketing efforts throughout Orange County, as well as Rockland County.
Multi-year scholarships are available for students based on academic achievement. Annual tuition is less than area private schools.
“The future of education lies with successful STEM preparation,” said Interim Superintendent Nancy Teed. “To be able to fully integrate a STEM curriculum in a nurturing, small school environment gives students tremendous advantages in their academic careers. There is no other model in the region like ours.”
Tuxedo’s small class sizes feature curriculum rivaling private school offerings while providing real world, learning collaborations with area businesses.
Students earn consistently high test scores and the district has received nationally recognized rankings, including from US News and World Report and Newsweek.
In addition to working daily with state-of-the-art technology, including take-home HP Chromebooks for all students, the Tuxedo STEM Academy at George F. Baker High School also is home to competitive interscholastic sports teams and an outstanding music and fine arts program.
The district also offers an innovative K-6 program at its George Grant Mason School for families interested in beginning a STEM infused education on the elementary level, also on a tuition basis.
“Our curriculum and instruction rival the best of what many private schools offer,” Teed said. “We look forward to showing our wonderful campus to potential students and their families and telling them about all the great things awaiting them at Tuxedo.”
