Mx STEM & Aerospace
Give your child the chance to soar.
Imagine learning to fly a plane before learning to drive a car.
Or designing, building and flying a drone, built with custom parts from a 3-D printer.
Or doing the world-class internship of your dreams at a leading engineering firm before graduating from high school.
These opportunities and more will be at your child’s fingertips as part of the unique and advanced curriculum in Maryknoll School’s Mx Scholar Program for STEM & Aerospace.
Courses in engineering, design, programming and robotics designed in partnership with BAE Systems challenge students beyond traditional high school subjects and teach them to connect concepts with the real world. All students participate in Maryknoll’s Civil Air Patrol (CAP) squadron and take classes in leadership development. Students who are interested may receive flight hours and instruction, and can earn a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) private pilot’s license before graduation.
