Marlborough Public Schools STEM Early College High School program is committed to strengthening the STEM pipeline by exposing all students to a rigorous 21st century learning experience and providing them with the skills essential for college and career readiness. Our specialized curriculum infuses the MA State Framework with the Engineering Design Process in all content areas through project- and problem-based learning. We are a member of the Pathways to Prosperity Institute in affiliation with the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.
Our students work with advanced classroom technology, tools, and resources. Students also have an opportunity to immerse themselves in early college and career pathways through our partnerships. These pathways are aligned with the industry sectors engineering/advanced manufacturing, computer science/information technology, and health care/life sciences.
To help us understand and align with current and future career pathways and to assist us in keeping current with the ever-changing job supply-and-demand environment - both locally and globally - we we work closely with two Youth CareerConnect funding partners that are critical to our successes.

The Marlborough Public Schools STEM Early College High School was officially "branded" in late 2011 in a student logo design contest.
After examining more than 100 entries by sixth- and ninth-grade students, the entry selected was created by then freshman Michaela Lacerra. Her prototype was turned over to advanced engineering students Anthony Vellante and Brandon Mattioli, and they utilized their engineering and drawing skills to redesign Michaela’s prototype and created a three-demensional design that was ultimately approved by Michaela.
