About Us

Dearborn STEM Academy is a Boston Public School, a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics school, an Early College, and a BPE Teaching Academy serving grades 6-12.


We are committed to preparing students to successfully enter the 21st-century global workforce. We bridge rigorous academics with career readiness, and we leverage Boston’s unique position in higher education and industry to provide students with access to authentic real-world experiences while cultivating critical thinking and communications skills

21st-century careers require skills and mindsets for which most schools were not designed: deep critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and creativity. Graduates will need a keen digital literacy and the ability to adapt continuously to new ideas and paradigms. The technical and adaptive skill sets and knowledge that are required of our students were unimagined in the 20th-century economy.


At Dearborn STEM Academy, students graduate with a deep understanding of the language, concepts, and ideas represented in STEM fields. Our teachers structure the classroom environment so that students learn to solve problems collaboratively, approach challenges from different perspectives, explain their reasoning, and create new knowledge together.

Dearborn STEM Academy students graduate with the 21st-century skills required for college and career success, prepared to serve as thoughtful, engaged citizens, who contribute to the health, vibrancy, and development of their community.
