At John Bapst, science puts students in touch with vital knowledge and skills for today’s world. Biology, chemistry, and physics are foundations for deeper learning in a range of elective areas, and study at the Advanced Placement level is popular in each of these sciences as well.
Learning science means doing science. Most students take four or more science offerings, developing the thinking skills and knowledge of lab procedures that will prepare them for science at the college level. Many John Bapst students choose an independent study option through the Distinguished Scholars Program; many also go on to majors and careers in the medical sciences, engineering, and research.
The John Bapst Science Department faculty includes specialists in a number of areas, including astronomy, marine sciences, and environmental education. This is the place to come for students who want to connect textbook knowledge to science in the real world.
