Bryan Innovation Lab

A new way and a new place to learn tomorrow’s skills.

Inspiring a new generation of innovators.

Will Renner '14

The Bryan Innovation Lab has given me a chance to learn in a more hands-on environment. Last year I took Biomedical Design with Mrs. Akesson and learned more than any text book could have tried to describe.

The Bryan Innovation Lab has become a catalyst for collaboration and for discovering new ways of learning that reinforce problem solving and encourage students to engage with the world around them.

Balancing self-awareness with the needs of others helps create better thinkers, innovators, and problem solvers. All students have access to the Bryan Lab, working on interdisciplinary projects such as RAMPS, the Growing Leaders Club, and the Robotics team. Programs often merge academics with the professional world through visiting speakers and presenters.

I love all that The Steward School has done for Trace. Steward has uncovered Trace’s talents, celebrated his individuality, and strengthened his belief in himself. The faculty and staff offer an amazing balance of challenge and comfort, encouraging the best from all students. I can’t imagine Trace being anywhere else. Thank you, Steward School.

Steward is the right place for Micah and Kiri because they are able to develop strong connections with their teachers, which in turn facilitates confidence and resilience in their learning. Everyone at Steward knows your name and makes you feel so welcome.

Being a member of The Steward School international program has been an awesome experience. The community has helped me tremendously along the way.

Steward Voices

Steward helped me develop the skills I needed to succeed in college and the courage and confidence to set competitive career goals for myself. But, these skills weren’t lessons I learned just in Steward’s classrooms; they came from the athletic fields, in the hallways, and during Honor Council meetings, too.

Steward provides Andrew with a nurturing environment which fosters his individualism, develops exemplary character traits, and continuously provides him with creative learning experiences. Consequently, Andrew ‘loves’ school and anticipates each day with joy, enthusiasm, and excitement.
- Betsy Jolley, Grandmother of Andrew O’Leary ’25

Steward Voices

Steward is an atmosphere that fosters confidence—something we have seen in all three of our kids. Whether it is playing a new sport, running for a seat on the Honor Council, or singing a solo on Talent Night, they have been encouraged to try, to experience, and to grow.
- Dan and Kathi Campbell, Parents of Abbie ’19, Emma ’17, and Ben ’14
