About ITSA

Immersive Teaching STEAM Academy (ITSA) offers technology-focused education in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) subjects. At ITSA, our core belief is that project-based learning is the key to inspire students to pursue STEM/STEAM subjects. Our courses, projects, and field trips can be used to supplement the knowledge gained in an educational institution or home-school environment. We deliver structured and comprehensive programs. We believe that by making projects fun and exciting, we increase their thirst for knowledge.

We recognize a need for high quality STEM Education through project based learning and that in Arizona, not all STEM education is created equal. The Immersive Teaching STEAM Academy (ITSA) began educating students in 2016. The concept was created by Raman Khurana, President and CEO of Perfopt Technologies out of necessity for qualified technology workers. Based on the success of our ITSA pilot in Goodyear, we opened additional sites and expanded our offerings to include full time education. In 2018, we are proud to offer technology electives,  day school applications, and technology enrichment camps

 
ITSA Technology Electives: Students obtain foundational knowledge in coding, computing systems,  and technology-related ethics while enjoying fun projects in robotics, digital arts (we put the A in STEAM), 3D technologies, game development, virtual reality, and web design. Attend two days/week during or after school to earn .5 tech elective credits each semester.
 
ITSA Private Day School:  technology-focused, flexible environment with blended-learning options to create an personalized learning plan (PLP) for your student. Our students learn at their own pace using Edgenuity © or Apologia © as their online core-curriculum, and electives delivered through ITSA’s  technology concentration areas in Engineering/ Robotics, Digital Arts, Game Development, and Computer Science. We welcome 6th – 12th grade students who have expressed an interest in technology.
 
ITSA Camps: offered during school breaks (Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, Spring) our enrichment programs provide fun and exciting projects using cutting-edge technologies. Students learn about 3D Technologies, Robotics, Game Development, Minecraft Modding, Virtual Reality, and much more!
 
We are inclusive of all learners including traditional, gifted and high-functioning. ITSA School takes pride in facilitating learning through small class sizes and individualized attention. We recognize the needs of each student regarding the time, days and the duration needed to successfully complete lessons. Our goal is to help prepare middle and high school students for a high-tech workplace by integrating vocational training and work-skill building throughout their curriculum in order to help them reach their full potential!
 
At ITSA, our core belief is that project-based learning is the key to inspire students to pursue STEM/STEAM subjects. Our in-school projects and camps are offered onsite and taught by experienced instructors. We are proud to put the A in STEAM at the Immersive Teaching STEAM Academy (ITSA)!
