Friends of Katherine Johnson STEM Academy (FKJSA) is a parent-initiated 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation working under Parent Booster, USA. FKJSA is organized to promote fundraising to support the academic achievement and enrichment of all students at the Katherine Johnson STEM Academy.

Katherine Johnson STEM Academy aims to become the epitome of a great neighborhood middle school – one that focuses on being an academically rigorous STEM school while also providing a strong social-emotional curriculum that centers on growth mindset. Our students will become 21st century problem-solvers with great hearts and great minds. FKJSA will support this goal with your help!

Opening a new school has never been a low-cost endeavor, and opening a STEM school in 2017 results in even greater expenses. LAUSD will fund many things, but not ALL things. To make our school the best it can be, we need help from YOU.
