A Classical Catholic School

Science

The Middle School Science curriculum offers a graduated and systematic exposure to many scientific disciplines (e.g. earth, biological and physical sciences) but the curriculum is unified in a number of ways. First and foremost, at St Theresa Catholic School, we are concerned to help our students think scientifically. This of course involves weekly science labs that develop the skill of scientific discovery and verification. Second, mathematics factors heavily in the classroom as students, not only use the equations of the scientific laws they are learning, but are also inducted into the actual process of formulating observable phenomena into mathematical equations. Finally, as the history of science is one of advancement through the mutual exchange of theory and technology, our science curriculum is a unique blend of STEM and what in earlier generations was called “natural philosophy.”
