Inspiration. Imagination. Commitment.

Our curriculum offerings support student successes for living, learning and growing in the 21st century. With our emphasis in aerospace, science, technology, engineering and mathematics; we are accomplishing our mission by exposing young minds to a world of possibilities, and backing that up with the coursework that will help them reach their highest potential.

In addition to the specific subjects, our students are exposed to many guest scientists, astronauts and professionals from a wide range of careers. Our students continue to be inspired by the message given and the fact that students can achieve their goals with hard work and perseverance.

Students continue to learn through field experiences that take them beyond the walls of the classroom. These experiences provide many "firsts" for a number of our students. First airplane ride, first space museum, first time serving as a crew member of a simulated mission... In many cases these firsts inspire their earliest career goals that include scientists, engineers and yes, astronauts too.

We encourage parents and families to remain active throughout their child's education. After all, our parents learn with their children as they too are exposed to the exciting, new information we see at Farnsworth every year.

We have:

  • Uniquely Trained Staff
  • Out of this World Field Trips
  • Experts from the Field
