we provide the insight and empower teens to make right decisions
we HIGHLIGHT the ‘T’ in STEAM!
IDEALStudent Academy mission is to expose and convert students from passive to active users of technology through our curriculum that prepares them to be the doers, thinkers, designers, and innovators in our digital economy.
We live in the Digital Age. Most students know how to be entertained with technology, but not many can innovate, design, build or create with it to solve complex problems. These are not “nice to have” skills, they are “must have” skills.
