Science Department

The Science Department teaches the principles and processes that govern nature, as well as the methods used by the natural sciences to discover and organize this knowledge. In order to learn both the principles and the methods by which those principles are discovered, each student is required to take three one-year laboratory courses. Besides enabling students to master the basic principles and methods of the natural sciences, courses in science develop habits of reasoning and critical thinking that are applicable to all areas of intellectual, ethical, and practical consideration. The study of the natural sciences helps students see the God-given order, beauty, and intelligence manifested in the amazingly complex yet orderly workings of physical creation both great and small.  Studied through the lens of faith combined with rigorous intellectual inquiry, the sciences support the teachings of the Catholic faith and encourage students to ponder God's nature and providence.
