Academics

Roosevelt STEAM Academy is the first STEAM Academy in the Elkhart area. Students receive a comprehensive education, based on the STEAM model: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Students are encouraged to ask questions and help develop their areas of study through Project-Based Learning. Recently, students focused on the follow areas:

  • Kindergarten: Five Senses
  • First Grade: Soil
  • Second Grade: Severe Weather
  • Third Grade: Sound
  • Fourth Grade: Land and Water
  • Fifth Grade: Environments
  • Sixth Grade: Engineering

Through incorporating all five principles of the STEAM focus onto one subject area, students learn through self-discovery in their unique areas of interest. Guided by teachers trained in the STEAM approach to curriculum, students are encouraged to explore all aspects of a subject, including careers.

Roosevelt STEAM Academy is also the first school in the area to introduce students to band in third grade, thanks to our great community sponsors. Students learn the value of hard work, individual focus, being a critical part of a team, and responsibility through the care of their instruments and the growth of their musical abilities.
