FAQ's

Q. How do I sign up?

A All interested and new families should call or email us to set up a free orientation and tour. The orientation allows you and your child to come see STEM Center, learn about our courses, and receive a folder with more information on schedules and payment plans.

We do not allow registrations online until we have met your family. This allows us to meet your family, recommend an appropriate starting class, and explain our teaching pedagogy. Seeing the center is the best way for you to understand our process more. Please call us at 909-624-0624 or email us at info@STEMCenterUSA.com

Q. What is the annual membership?

A The annual membership is our most popular membership plan! It is currently offered at $1295 for Junior STEM and $1395 for Discover STEM. The annual membership includes 43 sessions. It only counts towards attended sessions, so any absences and holidays are added on to the end of the program. This makes it the most flexible plan! Because course fees depend upon level and materials necessary, the minimum savings with an annual membership is $600! As our instructors like to say, gym memberships keep your body fit - STEM memberships keep your mind active, enriches creativity, and engages students in an education like none other. Truly, it's worth it.
