ANC STEM Academy
The STEM Academy provides enrichment and program acceleration opportunities to
outstanding high school students who have demonstrated the ability to do
satisfactory college level work while still enrolled at their local high
schools. STEM students will only attend the Academy for their allotted class
times and will be enrolled at both the high school and the STEM Academy. This
will allow courses to be offered for concurrent credit as high school units and
college credit. Courses in the 35 hour general education core will transfer to
all Arkansas public institutions and many other public and private institutions
as long as students successfully complete the course (C or better). Students
should confirm transferability with the institution of choice and verify the
number of concurrent enrollment hours accepted by each. Services are offered at
NO COST to the students. Books, tuition and fees are provided through the
STEM Academy and funded by the local school districts. Admission Policy Present ACT (or equivalent ASSET or COMPASS) scores consistent with collegelevel placement in the subject area in which they wish to enroll Students must have qualifying minimum scores on accepted placement tests:
future course offerings could include the following:

including graphing techniques, finding zeros, finding inverse and composite
functions and applications. Other topics may include solving systems of
equations and inequalities, basic operations on matrices, and finding
determinants. Prerequisite: “C” or above in MA 14083 Intermediate Algebra, ACT
of 21 in math or above, ASSET Intermediate Algebra Type I score of 39 or above,
or a COMPASS score of 53100 in Type A Algebra. Students must make a “C” or
above in the course to earn an Associate in Arts Degree.
MA 14053 PLANE TRIGONOMETRY
