Study group of students for Math class.

Accelerate Your Potential

STEM Core at AACC is a program designed to grow the number of students interested in STEM-related careers while accelerating through their math requirements.

Our students participate in one of two programs:

  • STEM Scholars - students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM)
  • Cyber Scholars - students majoring in Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Information Technology, Network Security and/or Digital Forensics.


STEM Core takes a comprehensive approach to student success by offering extensive resources and opportunities for our students.

All students are provided the following:

  • Potential for an accelerated math course sequence. Students will be given an opportunity to get to MAT-191 in one academic year.
  • Internship placement assistance. We connect students with local industry and government employers for summer internship opportunities.
  • Academic and career advising. A STEM student support specialist will be available for one-on-one support to set goals, find solutions to overcome difficulty, help with resumé building, and provide career counseling.
  • Enrichment activities. STEM Core students enjoy academic, professional and cultural seminars, workshops, and other related events.
