Tech Education is Our Tradition
Born at Stanford University in 1999 and given accreditation by Stanford University Continuing Studies in 2002, Digital Media Academy has been designing, developing, and delivering STEM education to students of all ages ever since. From day one, we have set out to provide world-class tech education that sets students up for future success in learning and creating.
We believe that the best learning happens while creating. We focus on cultivating the most important traits from our students: creativity, empathy, and the ability to solve problems by immersing them in a high-energy, hands-on, collaborative learning experience
