JVJ STEM Academy - School No. 92

Welcome to JVJ STEM Academy School No. 92

  • JVJ STEM Academy School No. 92 is named in honor of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, known as human computers, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in United States history.


    These three women quickly rose in the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds, specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit and guaranteeing his safe return. The brilliance and desire of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, transcended all gender, race, and professional barriers while firmly cemented them in United States history as true American heroes.


    Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson also placed great value on education and the pursuit of knowledge, with each of them beginning their professional careers as schoolteachers following their own highly accomplished academic careers. The impact, influence, and heroic contributions of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson warrants and deserves the recognition of an academic institution being named in their honor. 


    Students enrolled in the STEM Academy, in addition to completing a rigorous college preparatory program, will also be given the opportunity to participate in hands on- real world activities integral to their chosen career paths in areas such as computer science, biomedical sciences, and engineering. 

    The school program will also guide the participating students in pioneering the ways and means by which to apply STEM principles into all aspects of the world in which we live. In addition to focused STEM based electives, Honors and AP classes will be available to all interested students. All STEM Academy students will be expected to comply with the rules, regulations, and policies of the Academy and the school district. 

    Upon graduating from the STEM Academy our students will be prepared to enter the competitive fields of Computer Science, Engineering or Biomedical Science through enrollment in any 2-year or 4-year college/university. 

    All students will participate in school and community activities that will give them a strong knowledge base regarding various fields that are relying more and more on STEM practices and innovation every day.

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Welcome to the JVJ STEM Academy School No. 92 Family!! 

    My name is Theodore Panagopoulos and I am the Principal of JVJ STEM Academy School No. 92. My previous assignment was at Terence C. Reilly School No. 7, where I spent seven years leading one of the best academic programs in the State of New Jersey. I worked as a Vice Principal at Dwyer Technology Academy prior and spent time as an Instructional Supervisor working throughout our district. 

    I hope to take all of these previous experiences to make this school one of the top institutions in the city and state, and am hopeful that the team that is selected to join us will help us attain national recognition for being one of the best STEM oriented high school academies in the nation.

    Please make sure to visit our website using the link below. All relevant information (uniform policy, drop off/pickup information, staff list, orientation dates) pertaining to our opening in September 2021 will be located there. 

    We will also be frequent in our communications with you via the BlackBoard Connect System. Please make sure not to “opt-out” of these communications. 

    I am excited for the future that this inaugural student body, parents and guardians, and staff will help build together this coming school year and am so motivated to start churning the teaching and learning gears within our prestigious program.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the number/email below. 


    Theodore Panagopoulos
