STEM Recruitment Plan

The T-STEM Academy at Canutillo High School intends to provide the opportunity for all students to take part in the growth and exposure that will be accessible to all students in the program. All students in the feeder schools are able to apply for admission to the T-STEM Academy.

CHS hosted a curriculum fair for each feeder school in order to present all students with the different types of pathways offered at CHS, specifically Engineering, Computer Science and Biomedical. In addition, all STEM information will be accessible on the Canutillo ISD website.

As part of the marketing plan, the coordinator and leadership team has created:

  • Tri-fold brochure outlining academy goals, expectations, and a detailed 4-year graduation plan for each pathway available at CHS.
  • STEM logo  has been created for the academy
  • Academy leadership will create a website, which will include videos of student projects and activities, pictures of student work, and a plethora of information for parents, students and community members to access at all times.
  • Finally, members of the CHS T-STEM Academy will partner with local businesses to promote the program through public advertisements and promotional items (t-shirts, caps, posters, etc.).  
  • All STEM Academy students have a STEM Polo that identifies them as being apart of the academy
  • STEM Students will have a STEM ID

In addition to open enrollment and strategic marketing plan; the coordinator and leadership will follow specific parameters for recruitment.  Any student with the desire and aptitude to follow a STEM program leading to a STEM career is eligible to apply for the CHS T-STEM Academy. A presentation will be made to parents, students, and staff to outline expectations and specify details and benefits regarding the T-STEM program.

This year we have partnered with our feeder schools to ensure an awareness of the benefits of preparing for a career in the STEM field from elementary through high school. Davenport Elementary School has started the “Launch” program which is a Project Lead the Way initiative. Canutillo Middle School will be going STEM across a whole campus as well as applying for is designation with the High School.
