The STEM-X application involves 2 components and is more efficient than ever!
It is designed for parents and students to complete together.  Application link is not compatible with iPads or other mobile devices.

1. Student/Parent Form

The online Student/Parent form is arranged in three parts and should be completed accordingly.

  • Student Information
  • Student Questionnaire – we want to hear from the student in their own words!
  • Parent Questionnaire

2. Teacher Recommendation Form

Please plan to provide a teacher’s name and email address while filling out the application.

  • The teacher recommendation form must be completed and submitted by a teacher. 
  • Unless you are a homeschooling parent/guardian, do not enter your own email address in this section of the application, as this will significantly delay the recommendation process.
  • We encourage parents/guardians or students to follow up with teachers to ask them to expect an email from STEM-X and to be sure to check their email spam folders.
  • Once it is submitted by the teacher, the recommendation will be linked to your student’s application.


Please allow a week once the application is complete (including the letter of recommendation) to receive notification from STEM-X. We encourage parents and/or students to follow up with the teacher who is completing recommendations to help expedite your application.

Acceptance, Course Selection and Payment

Upon acceptance to STEM-X, notification will be sent to you via email. Access to course selection and the payment portal will be made available at that time.
