Founded on a historical bedrock of faith and academic integration, the STREAM White Paper outlines a framework for STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Math) integrated curricular initiatives in Catholic education. The why, what and how of such an initiative illuminates that all knowledge conferred, discovered, and evaluated in Catholic schools can and must be done so by the light of faith.
