STEM Applications Through May 3rd

The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, created in partnership with the 49ers, the Silicon Valley Education Foundation and the Santa Clara Unified School District and supported by Chevron, is a six-year program that will prepare students with high academic potential to be outstanding. The Institute aims to inspire and prepare its students to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) majors at top-tier universities and become the future leaders in their fields. The program is offered at no cost (inclusive of class time, materials, and additional academic support resources) and is located at Cabrillo Middle School (grades 7-8) and Santa Clara High School (grades 9-12).

As a few positions have become available in our current 7th grade and 8th grade cohorts, students from the SCUSD attendance area are eligible to apply for the six-year program and enter next year’s 8th grade (class of 2021) and 9th grade (class of 2020) programs. Students who exhibit high academic achievement (including, but not limited to, grades and test scores) and demonstrate an interest in STEM in their applications will advance as semi-finalists. Semi-finalists will be invited to interview with Institute staff. Accepted students will be selected and informed in May.

Who qualifies:

  • Current 7th and 8th graders who live within the geographic area of Santa Clara Unified School District.
  • Students with a strong academic record (overall GPA of 3.0 or higher, strong math and science achievement in current classes and readiness for Geometry Honors in 8th grade and Algebra 2 Honors in 9th grade)(**note: students who are not currently on this math path are not excluded from applying, but their math readiness and ability to catch up will be reviewed for placement purposes)
  • Students willing and able to commit to the rest of the 6-year program from 7th through 12th grade.

Apply for Admission: The online application (strongly preferred) opens on April 6th, 2016 and closes May 3rd, 2016 on our website at www.49ersSLI.com.  Families who are unable to submit the application online may also submit a paper application at the Cabrillo Middle School main office.

Much Deserved Recognition -- Message from Principal Garber

CCC photo.jpg


Recognized for our Caring School Climate


At least six thousand students have matriculated through Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) since I began teaching in room twenty-two, twenty-two years ago.  So much has changed since I arrived; Common Core is the new instructional approach, SBAC is the new testing method, Local Control is the new Funding Formula, the school has been rebuilt from the ground up and the 49ers moved to Santa Clara, built Levi’s Stadium and decided to begin the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute at CMS.


But despite all these changes, the CMS faculty has remained remarkably stable with seasoned teachers taking on leadership roles, like participation in our Culture Climate Committee (CCC). This committee meets regularly to take a realistic look at issues on campus, while developing strategies to provide for student happiness and safety. The implementation of our Anti-Bully Days is a good example of a program that they have created.

So effective is the CCC’s work that it was just announced that CMS will receive Project Cornerstone’s Caring School Climate – Middle School Award in March. Being recognized by Project Cornerstone is a wonderful achievement for the school and I’m proud of Vice Principal Auger and the faculty, for making this happen.
