As the future opportunities for our students in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) as well as in computer coding are ever increasing it is important to encourage the participation of our female students in these growing technical pathway opportunities, as these fields are traditionally dominated by men.
Those who are successful in today’s uncertain social, political, and economic times will have a very holistic and interdisciplinary view of the world. Projects that allow students to approach real problems from various perspectives and disciplines will help students to gain the thinking and questioning strategies to make them successful, as well as helping them to make valuable connections in the content areas and deepen a wide range of transferable skills.

Project FLOW seeks to leverage the strengths of our Generation Z students. This group of students uses technology to access experts and information in ways like never before.

The framework for the Education and Career / Life Planning Program is a four-step inquiry process that encourages students to explore, assess and reassess their knowledge of self, opportunities, goals and plans by creating their own Individual Pathways Plan (or IPP). This is St. Elizabeth’s interpretation and implementation of the IPP at our school.
