– Joe Bonin, Managing Director

At SVN Vanguard, we believe in the power of community and the importance of education. Our commitment to these values is exemplified by our Managing Director, Joe Bonin, whose dedication extends beyond the boardroom and into the heart of San Diego.

A New Era for STEM Education

This year, Nativity Prep Academy has taken a monumental step in advancing educational opportunities with the inauguration of a state-of-the-art STEM Center. This innovative facility offers a cutting-edge learning environment designed to inspire and equip students with the skills needed for the future.

The STEM Center boasts a variety of specialized spaces:

Building a Diverse and Talented Workforce

STEM workers drive our nation’s innovation and competitiveness with the creation of new ideas, new companies, and new industries. However, children from underserved communities, particularly girls and students of color, are vastly underrepresented in the STEM industry. Providing our students with opportunities to pursue — and thrive in STEM careers will help to create social mobility, enhance economic security, and ensure a diverse and talented STEM workforce.

We envision our programs building a pipeline for future employees and entrepreneurs in STEM fields and invite you to partner with us to make this a success. Designed as an early-intervention program, we aim to introduce STEM concepts to middle school students, enabling them to continue their learning in STEM fields throughout high school and college.

Comprehensive Educational Support

The curriculum at the STEM Center is not only focused on academic excellence but also on career exploration, helping students to envision and work towards their future careers. With the addition of more classroom space, Nativity Prep Academy can now welcome even more students into its programs, providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed.

The new STEM Center also introduces sustainable revenue streams to support the Academy’s annual operating budget. By renting out the kitchen, labs, and classrooms, Nativity Prep ensures a steady flow of income to maintain and enhance its educational offerings. The upgraded kitchen facilities will significantly improve daily nutrition services for students, ensuring they have the energy and focus needed for their studies.

Furthermore, the enhanced parent education program will provide valuable resources and support to families, fostering a stronger community bond. The shared STEM programming opportunities extend beyond the school, supporting the local community and nurturing a culture of learning and innovation.

Commitment to Community and Education

At SVN Vanguard, we are incredibly proud of Joe Bonin’s involvement with Nativity Prep Academy. His dedication to supporting educational initiatives aligns with our company’s values and our commitment to making a positive impact in the communities we serve. The new STEM Center is not just a facility; it is a beacon of opportunity, empowering students and enriching our community.

Join us in celebrating this remarkable achievement and supporting the future leaders of our community.
