STEM Programs of Distinction
For the 2022-2023 school year, BMC has added Programs of Distinction to its Curriculum Guide. These programs were developed for students who wish to focus on a particular field of study. Some of these pathways fall under the STEM umbrella. The STEM curriculum, which is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines, including Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, is an interdisciplinary and applied approach to teaching. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
The Aeronautics program is a dual-enrollment program, partnering with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Curriculum will engage students in collegiate level courses that provide courses of study in human factors, security, aviation safety, aeronautical science, unmanned aircrafts, private pilot, and groundschool.
- Aerospace Tech I
- Embry-Riddle DE Principles of Aeronautics
- Embry-Riddle DE Unmanned Aircraft Systems
- Embry-Riddle DE Unmanned Aircraft Operations
- Embry-Riddle DE Unmanned Aircraft Security
- Embry-Riddle DE Private Pilot Operations
The Biomedical program will inspire our future health professionals. Biomedical Science applies real-world issues by exploring topics like disease, DNA analysis, prosthetic design, public health, and more. Students gain experience with state-of-the-art tools and techniques that are used by professionals in hospitals and labs every day.

The Computer Science Program will empower students to become creators, instead of merely consumers, of the technology around them. Courses cover topics including coding, app development, simulation, and cybersecurity. Throughout the courses, students collaborate to design solutions to real-world challenges, while practicing ethical reasoning.
- Foundations of Programming
- Foundations of Web Design
- Game and Simulation Design
- Foundations of Robotics
- AP Computer Science Principles
- AP Computer Science A
Bishop Moore Engineering students will explore success through experimentation. Students will engage in real-world problems that often have multiple solutions with many pathways to achieve success. Course opportunities will include principles of engineering, civil engineering and architecture, aerospace engineering, and engineering design and development. Students are empowered to explore possibilities, experiment, learn from failure, and turn ideas into reality. Engineering encourages students to adopt a problem-solving mindset, engaging them in compelling, real-world challenges that help them become better collaborators and thinkers.
