At RPCS, we are committed to preparing our girls and young women for the future they will live in, not the present they inhabit now. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that in the coming century, 80 percent of all non-service industry jobs will require some degree of formal training in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through STEM-dedicated educational opportunities (as well as our regular curricular sequence), RPCS builds on the innate curiosity in all of our students and their desire for challenge to lead in tomorrow’s workforce.
The program is focused on developing in our students a core set of “common habits of mind” that will make each of them effective problem solvers—the foundation of every STEM field. Employing an interdisciplinary approach in all of our STEM opportunities, we provide the girls and young women at RPCS with the cross-disciplinary skills they will need to pursue whatever future they desire, and in so doing, we seek deliberately to play our role in the larger mission of the school.
Where else can you find a school within a school? The STEM Institute at Roland Park Country School. Only at RPCS.
