Mission & Vision Statement
STEAD’s mission is to empower students to design and lead their own postsecondary and career pathways within the context of an exciting Science, Technology, Environmental, Agricultural and System Design thinking learning environment. Heads, hearts and hands are engaged in project-based learning as students develop their individual passions to become lifelong learners, thinkers, creators and activists. All students graduate with a professional portfolio, post-secondary plans, a robust set of work and community service experiences and can graduate with college credit.
The STEAD School provides pathways and an educational and career pipeline for the next generation of passionate and visionary Colorado leaders across business, civic, science, health, energy and natural resource industries and across rural, urban and suburban divides. Deeply connected to their respective communities, STEAD students are stewards of their environment and address increasingly complex food, health, environmental and energy challenges that face the state, the nation and the planet.
