The Science Department strives to build confidence in science and promote the critical reasoning skills necessary for cadets planning to continue their studies at the collegiate level. Through hands-on laboratory investigations, inquiry-based learning, and the integration of mathematical skills, Cadets learn to apply the scientific method in all disciplines and to connect science to real world applications.
Our curriculum begins with Physics I for freshmen where our Cadets enhance their algebraic skills as they investigate the fundamental laws of nature.
In their sophomore year Cadets take Chemistry, building upon the laws of physics as they study the structure and properties of matter. Biology follows in the junior year where Cadets utilize their chemical knowledge to explore the functions and processes of living organisms at the molecular level.
