Imagine. Innovate. Be inspired.

At the crux of science, technology, engineering and math, aka STEM, are people like you. People who are interested in using their creativity to generate ideas and solve real-world problems. Solving problems is exactly what you’ll learn to do at Vancouver iTech Preparatory, a unique experience for students in sixth through 12th grades.

The school combines STEM with the liberal arts by integrating art and design principles into research and problem-based learning. One day, you might find yourself studying restoration efforts on Mount St. Helens; the next, designing and pitching a product to a panel of professionals. To expand learning opportunities, you’ll receive your own digital device to use at school and home. Partnerships with local businesses and opportunities to earn college credit can help prepare you for your next steps after high school.

iTech Preparatory is located on the Washington State University Vancouver campus. Transportation is provided.
