The primary goal of STEM3 Academy is to foster success beyond high school. Roughly 35 percent of young people with autism do not transition from high school to a job or continued education, according to a 2015 report out of Drexel University.

Seniors Stefanie and Cullen have benefited from the school's math and technology-focused curriculum and hope to continue studying these subjects in college next year.
