The purpose of the Science Department is to develop students’ respect for the order and beauty of creation, an awareness of the forces that shape our physical and biological world, and a sense of personal responsibility for the direction science and technology will take in the course of their lives. The program empowers students to acquire an organized body of scientific information and skills necessary for critical thinking and responsible decision-making.
Provisions are made for students whose interests and abilities support a quantitative approach to science and for those whose success depends on more qualitative development. Because scientific and technological information is pervasive and linked to contemporary value systems, it is important for each student to become as scientifically literate as possible.
Graduation Requirements: Four credits, including Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
