We here at Roncalli STEM Academy are very excited for the upcoming school year and the continuing changes for school improvement.

*Update for 2018-2019:  In addition to the black polo shirt and khaki pants, Roncalli STEM students are also permitted to wear a Roncalli logo sweatshirt or black Roncalli zip up jacket. Zip up jacket is sold at Embroidery Plus.   (black polo shirts must be worn under).
