As previously reported on The Burn, Goose Creek Village will also soon be home to a Stemtree center and a Russian School of Mathematics center. Worthy of note — all three are focused on the so-called STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, math) that are a major part of education in the 21st century.

The new school sits in between The Burger Shack and the Social House, across the parking lot from the Harris Teeter. Goose Creek Village is at the intersection of Belmont Ridge Road and Sycolin Road.
