SCIENCE

In their science courses at St. Agnes, students are encouraged to explore the interactions among society, technology, and science. By understanding past achievements, present projects and future possibilities in scientific study, students will lay foundations for a lifetime of interest and possible career in science. St. Agnes students must take four years of science and will follow either a college preparatory science program or an honors science program. All students in the college preparatory program take Biology in 9th grade and Chemistry in 10th grade. Students must also take Physics or Empirical Physics before graduation. Beyond these courses, students will choose from the following: Human Genetics, Human Body Systems, Physiology, Chemistry 2, Oceanography, Geology, Astronomy, and Forensic Science. Students with a strong science aptitude can follow an honors science program depending on their capabilities and the results of their science placement test. Ninth graders may be placed into Honors Biology. After 9th grade, the following honors courses are available: Honors Pre-AP Chemistry, Honors Physics, Honors AP Biology, and Honors AP Chemistry.
