Stewart Academy teaches the students computing basics: Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and the ability to create a webpage with HTML. These basics are taught early in the student's academic career (e.g. freshman year) and the students use these practical skills throughout their academic programs. There are no further computer science requirements after the student is introduced to these computing core competencies. The students have attained the basic computing skills and they improve beyond the computing basics via practical application of these skills in other classes. Typically, as electives, students can learn from two computing categories: software applications and software development. In the software applications courses students learn how to use a variety of software tools (programs) for effective communication. In the software development courses students learn computer programming, concepts of traditional computer science, and software engineering principles.
