​At St Joseph’s we pride ourselves in our rigorous approach to STEM Education. In addition to the in-depth content knowledge required for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, we prioritise connected and authentic learning experiences that develop skills for innovation, collaboration and creative and critical thinking. We encourage our students to be lifelong learners and responsible global citizens. We believe STEM education is essential component to a well-rounded education. 

With digitalisation and automation continuing to rapidly and dramatically change the world of work, we can’t predict many of the jobs that today’s STEM students will hold as their careers unfold. But we can be certain that they will need deep discipline knowledge in their field, digital literacy and the flexibility to pivot their careers to embrace new challenges. A STEM education delivers these skills.
