In our science courses, students participate in a course of study that will enable them to master the processes of scientific investigation, and to design, and safely conduct, evaluate, and communicate about such investigations. They will acquire essential knowledge about the content of science in the fields of physical science, life science, and earth and space science. It is our goal that students will be scientifically literate – able to read and analyze scientific information. Further, science students at the Academy will engage in the authentic practice of science. They will know and understand relationships among science, technology, and human activity and how they affect the world, and understand that science involves a particular way of knowing. They will also understand common connections among scientific disciplines. Finally, students will understand the history of science.
