A Classical Catholic School

Science

The Primary School Science curriculum offers graduated and systematic exposure to many scientific disciplines (e.g. Physical, Biological and Astronomical 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. But as the curriculum develops in the upper grades (5th through 8th grade), Mathematics and technology are intentionally integrated into the classroom.  The history of Science is one of advancement through the mutual exchange of theory and technology, and our Science curriculum is a unique blend of STEM, and what in earlier generations was called “Natural Philosophy.”
