Mission Statement

At Immaculate Conception STEM Academy, our mission is to prepare students to be faith-filled, active members of our global community. While using critical thinking and problem solving skills, students will be able to apply their Catholic education to engineer innovative solutions to influence the world around them.


Principal's Message

Dear IC STEM Families,


Thank you to everyone that helped make our first fundraiser such a big success! We appreciate all of the parent volunteers and participants. A big thank you to the Knights of Columbus for putting together Oktoberfest and giving 100% of the profits to IC. I know a great time was had by all!


We are looking forward to our next community event - the Halloween Social. Our Halloween Social is a fun evening for our students to wear their costumes, play games, and experience a Trunk-or-Treat. Our Room Parents will be asking for your help and sending out more information soon. If you would like to volunteer to decorate your car for the Trunk-or-Treat, please email Mrs. Rojas. You will receive 4 service hours for participating. Please see below for a list of items that we need donated for this event. Thank you!


October is the month of the Rosary. We celebrate the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary on October 7. We will begin to recite one decade of the rosary with the students at our morning assemblies. I encourage all families to ask your child about the rosary and find a way to incorporate the rosary into your prayer at home.


I pray that our Lady offers all of us peace and comfort in our daily lives. I know she will continue to guide us and protect our community.

Hot Lunch Program

Our hot lunch program is off to a great start! November's order form will be available during the last week of October. Please let your child know if you ordered lunch for them so they know to pick up their morning recess snack and lunch. Please know that menu items may be subject to change.

Parent Volunteers

There are so many opportunities to share your ideas with the school. If you are interested in joining the PTO, becoming a room parent, joining our STEM Committee, or helping with the Golf Tournament, please let Mrs. Rojas know.


Also, if you would like to help with lunch time supervision, please let us know. You must be fingerprinted and Virtus trained.
