The Science Program at St. Francis Prep
The Science Department offers a comprehensive, in-depth program of study in the physical, life, and environmental sciences. The Science Department offers all four New York State Regents courses: Earth Science, Chemistry, Physics (Physical Setting) and Biology (the Living Environment). We also offer four Advanced Placement courses: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Environmental Science. Students may also participate in authentic Science Research, a 3-year sequence of courses that emphasizes the research process and presentation of a final research report. All students must take three years of Science and must pass at least one Science Regents exam in order to graduate.
The Prep’s Science Research Program has grown significantly in recent years in both scope and prestige. The quality of the program has been demonstrated in ten consecutive years and twelve out of fifteen years (through 2013) where students have been semi-finalists in the prestigious Intel Science Talent Search, making the Prep the only Catholic High School in the nation to accomplishment this.
Yet the science labs are inadequate and require modernization and the Science Department’s office and conference space has been virtually non-existent until recently.
