Foundation

TIMES² (Times squared ) STEM Academy is a K-12 accredited charter public school committed to improve mathematics, engineering and science studies for urban youth in Providence, Rhode Island. Times² STEM Academy prepares America’s next scientists, engineers and leaders by providing a rigorous academic program aligned with the state's requirements.


TIMES² Academy began in 1976 as an after-school and Saturday enrichment program, with a dream of minority children becoming the nation’s next great scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. In 1998, the dream transformed into a formal 7-12 charter public school to provide a learning environment to instruct, inspire and train students in STEM principles. In response to a critical need to provide early intervention and development, the elementary division was opened in 2002.

21st Century Leadership

Now, the K-12 Academy is an environment where students and their families gain purposeful guidance as they equip themselves with the skills necessary to navigate their way through the emerging technologies and science of the 21st century.

The faculty and staff provide hands on learning experiences with a strong academic emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) principles, augmented by an innovative In-Field Learning Experience program that enables students to observe STEM based endeavors in the real world.
