The Science Department is devoted to the concept of enhancing student growth in the understanding of scientific concepts and the development of both cognitive and effective scientific thinking skills. In-depth reasoning is encouraged through hands-on science laboratory assignments as well as the integration of mathematics, English grammar concepts, and computer technology.
Students are taught to value their role as part of a complex environment including the solar system, the earth, the science of all life, and the physical universe. Student enthusiasm is generated and utilized through hands-on investigation and activities. Effective thinking skills are enhanced by acknowledging that scientific knowledge complements the Universal Truth of God’s existence. The overall philosophy of the department is to develop in students a sense of wonder and responsibility as guardians of God’s creation as they study the universe using a controlled and systematic approach.
