About CMSA


Why make Centerra Mirage your STEM Academy of choice?

We believe in offering a well rounded, STEM education to all students. That means your child will have daily instruction in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through engaging, hands-on activities that help to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.  Our state certified, highly qualified teachers are able to use various instructional strategies to help address the whole child in an engaging and rigorous environment. We believe that we are preparing our students for careers that are yet to be developed.

Students are able to develop their leadership abilities through participation in Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, or serving as Chief Science Officers on our STEM council.  Students can also foster collaborative work and sportsmanship through VEX Robotics or competitive sports team participation. Students can be a part of CMSA's Enrichment program including DJ, Drama, Math, Sports, and other after school STEM clubs.

Centerra Mirage STEM Academy offers opportunities to engage the entire family in the culture of STEM. Students and their families have access to monthly Science Cafes, Engineering Nights, guest speakers, and other special events to take learning outside of the classroom and into our community.
