The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, created in partnership with the 49ers, the Silicon Valley Education Foundation and the Santa Clara Unified School District and supported by Chevron, is a six-year program that will prepare students with high academic potential to be outstanding. The Institute aims to inspire and prepare its students to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) majors at top-tier universities and become the future leaders in their fields. The program is offered at no cost (inclusive of class time, materials, and additional academic support resources) and is located at Cabrillo Middle School (grades 7-8) and Santa Clara High School (grades 9-12).
The inaugural year of the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute began in Summer 2014 with a cohort of 60 incoming seventh grade students. Each year, students will advance with their cohort to the next grade level. A new cohort of 60 incoming seventh graders will be selected through a competitive application process each year. By the end of the six-year rollout process, there will be a total of 360 students from grades 7 – 12 involved in the program, located at Cabrillo Middle School and Santa Clara High School in the Santa Clara Unified School District.
All students who apply and are accepted during their 6th grade year will begin the program in 7th grade. Student cohorts will enroll full-time at Cabrillo Middle School for the 7th and 8th grades and will continue with their cohort at Santa Clara High School for 9th through 12th grades. Bussing to school will be provided for all students who require it.
