Our signature program is the Ignite Leadership Academy for girls. This program provides specific skills that support personal and academic success. The skills taught in our program are designed to teach and model leadership characteristics and the proper application of these skills. For example, the curriculum includes studying relevant topics, case studies, classroom applications, and experiential learning field trips.
The leadership training is integrated with the academic presentation of subjects related to STEM. We believe this approach affords our students a unique vantage point in how these two areas of focus apply to their futures. We are thankful to have such a partner such as USA STEM to make this valuable collaboration possible.
Additionally, we have collaborated with the Mapping Black California Initiative. Their alliance with Esri, a global leader in geographic information system (GIS), gives SOEW the ability to expose our students to cutting-edge GIS technology and the use of spatial analytics to aid in solving global issues.
