SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - A new stem school will have an army of educators in its corner.

The new Global Impact STEM Academy was formally announced Monday night at the old South High School in Springfield.

The school will be backed by the likes of the Springfield City Schools, Clark State Community College, Wright State University and the Dayton Development Coalition.

The school will be a first of its kind in Ohio. It will focus on Agriscience including the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

The Ohio State University and the Ohio Farm Bureau are expected to provide guidance for the new venture.
