Catholic Memorial is proud to be a fully certified Project Lead the Way (PLTW) School. PLTW is a four-year engineering program that emphasizes the relationship and integration among Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). CMH is also a pilot school for the most advanced courses offered
in the PLTW and Computer Science curriculum, giving students the opportunity to take these select courses at CMH before any other school.
PLTW’s comprehensive curriculum stresses critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and real-world problem solving. The hands-on, project-based program engages students on multiple levels, exposes them to subjects that they typically would not pursue, and provides them with a strong foundation for achieving their academic goals in any chosen field of study. Colleges, universities, and expert industry professionals play an important role in our network by providing an impressive and important range of support and services; such as mentorship, internship opportunities, admission preference, granting college credit, and awarding scholarships for students. Students can begin earning college credits as early as their freshman year.
