2019-20 STEM Application Information for Incoming 9th Graders

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Eastvale STEM Academy at Eleanor Roosevelt High School is a specialized program that offers a rigorous curriculum for students interested in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. The program offers two pathways: medical science and engineering. We pride ourselves on our three founding principles: Access, Collaboration, and Partnership. We believe all students should have access to a rigorous curriculum, whether on the main campus or at the STEM Academy. Collaboration is encouraged at all levels: students to students, staff to staff, school and district to industries and educational institutions. We also focus on preparing our students to be college and career ready in the STEM fields upon graduation through partnerships.

When enrolled in the STEM program, students can expect a learning experience that takes the processes of critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, and collaboration and integrates it into the curriculum of real-world science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

There is an expectation that STEM students:

  • Complete four (4) years of mathematics.
  • Complete four (4) years of science.
  • Complete the 4-year STEM Pathway.
  • Complete three (3) years of World Language.
  • Take Summer School to meet the demands of pathway completion.
  • Maintain positive academic standing throughout their four (4) years in the program (no F's ), as students will be placed on academic probation otherwise.
  • Make a choice between various programs, such as AVID and PUENTE as these programs conflict with the STEM Pathway course requirements. Link Crew, ASB, and UNITY are not advised for 9th graders who choose to be in STEM.
  • Complete an annual district science project in 9th and 10th grades.
  • Perform community service and/or be involved in a community outreach or community impact project. While we do not collect students' community service logs, it is highly advised that students do this so they are competitive for college. 
  • Be involved in the STEM Academy's Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program.

After considering the expectations of the STEM Academy Program, students who are interested must do the following:

  • Attend an Information Night for Parents and Students to gain a better understanding of the STEM Program. This was held on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 6:30pm in the ERHS Theatre. 
  • Complete an online application by the deadline.

Online Application:

  • Online application was open between Sunday, November 11, 2018, at 12:00am and Sunday, November 25, 2018, at 11:59pm.
  • All applications must be submitted electronically no later than 11:59pm on the day of the application deadline, which is Sunday, November 25, 2018, to be considered on-time. Applications submitted past this date will be placed on a waitlist.
  • If you are interested in applying to the Eastvale STEM Academy past the deadline, we will open up a waitlist application in mid-January 2019.

Lottery:

Each year, we will admit approximately 190 students to the Eastvale STEM Academy program based on space and staffing. If we have more than 190 applications, applicants will be notified of the next steps which would be the lottery process.

The following priorities have been established for enrollment via a lottery system (these priorities do not pertain to late applicants):

  • Priority 1: Eastvale residents attending Ramirez and River Heights (home school is ERHS)
  • Priority 2: Eastvale residents attending another school other than Ramirez and River Heights (home school is ERHS)
  • Priority 3: Non-Eastvale residents attending Ramirez or River Heights on a district transfer
  • Priority 4: All other students

If we receive more applications than there are spaces available, each student applying to the Eastvale STEM Academy for the 2019-20 school year will be issued a lottery number (after the application deadline in December 2018) by electronic mail (e-mail). It is important that parents provide us a current and valid e-mail address when completing the online application. Please save the e-mail with your lottery number for future reference.

The lottery to select the students will be held in January of 2019. Date, time, and location will be e-mailed out to applicants when lottery numbers are issued. Lottery numbers will be randomly based on priorities until the available spaces are filled. Remaining students will be placed on a waitlist in the order their number is drawn. Accepted students will be notified via email by February 2019. Lottery results will also be posted on our website at that time.

Sincerely,

Eastvale STEM Academy
