Times² STEM Academy prepares America’s next scientists, engineers and leaders by providing a rigorous academic program aligned with the state's requirements.


Times² Academy began in 1976 as an after-school and Saturday enrichment program, with a dream of minority children becoming the nation’s next great scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. In 1998, the dream transformed into a formal 7-12 charter public school to provide a learning environment to instruct, inspire and train students in STEM principles. In response to a critical need to provide early intervention and development, the elementary division was opened in 2002.
