Science

The Science Department encourages students to learn about modern science and technology through such vehicles as inquiry-based labs, research projects, extensive use of the Academy's natural areas, and field trips to area hospitals, museums, and universities.  All Grade 9 students take physics, and then progress to chemistry (grade 10), biology (grade 11), and AP courses or other electives (grade 12).  Two years of laboratory science are required, but over 80% of our students take three or more years of science. Many of our alumni have pursued careers in engineering, medicine, and environmental science. Technology is incorporated in the Science department through the use of PowerPoint presentations, internet research, computer-based labs using TI-84 calculators, virtual dissections for some biology labs, and on-line conferencing. Enrollment in Honors and Advanced Placement courses requires departmental permission.
