Welcome Message

From the Desk of Mr. Gary Lane, Head of School…

Welcome to STEAM Academy! I am excited and proud to be principal of this excellent school. We are currently in our second year of operation (2014-2015)  and we have much success to celebrate! STEAM is a fully accredited elementary community school. We opened our doors in 2013 with 57 students. Today, we have 143 students. We will be adding a seventh grade this upcoming school year and we continue to grow as a community.

I have been a school administrator for five years. This is my eighth year working for Mosaica Education, ranked the #1 performing Education Management Organization in Ohio. I first began with Mosaica as a classroom teacher at one of its best schools, Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy. Prior to Mosaica, I taught in Jacksonville, Florida. However, the Cleveland area is home, which is why I returned.

My guiding belief as an educator is, “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” (Comer) I want to make sure each student at STEAM knows he or she is special to me and that he or she will succeed and excel here. This is an amazing school with truly inspired teachers and incredible students. I look forward to each and every day with your children.

Thank you for choosing STEAM Academy and allowing us to serve your family.
