Bishop Flaget is the only state-designated Preschool-8th grade STEM school in Ross County, and we were the first STEM school in the Diocese of Columbus!!

 

For more than 16 years, Bishop Flaget has been recognized by the Ohio Academy of Science with the Governor's Thomas Edison Awards for Excellence in STEM Education and Student Research.  Receiving this award is particularly difficult and requires documentation and evidence of true STEM learning.  Bishop Flaget is extremely proud of this honor.

 

As part of our continuous improvement plan, our staff worked hard to showcase to the state of Ohio our STEM program and were officially recognized as a STEM school in April of 2018.  We are continuing to grow our program through the support of our community partners and continued professional development of our staff.  We have continued development of our environmental education program by building a wildlife habitat on our playground which has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation, developing a Monarch Way Station with assistance from Monarch Watch, and earning Wild School status from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  We also have an established bluebird trail and have been attracting many more native songbirds to our area with help from the Ohio Bluebird Society.

We have developed our STEMisphere with help from Fluor BWXT, Monsanto, and the Ohio Energy Project.  We are continuing to grow our program to meet the needs and interests of our students in preschool through grade 8. The Ohio STEM Learning Network provides us with valuable guidance and opportunities, and Ohio University-Chillicothe provides us with additional support through our cooperative programs with faculty and students.

Finally, we are providing career programming through our own development of the Map Your Future program, originally developed by the United Way of Ross County as well as partnerships with Junior Achievement, the Atomic Credit Union, and Kenworth Truck Company.
