Science


Atheneum's Science Program uses classic and modern scientific writings from the best scientists. Students studying these seminal works and experiments come to an understanding of the principles that make scientific advancement possible. We follow the historical development of famous experiments and theories to orient the students' thinking toward the future. Each year of study in Atheneum's Middle School Science Program follows the pattern of the seasons, with Biology in the Fall and Spring Quarters, and Physics and Chemistry in the Winter Quarters. The coherence of the program ensures that the students are able to apply to the next quarter the scientific rules and principles learned in the previous quarter. In the High School Program each year takes a specific scientific focus. The high school curriculum includes advanced laboratory and field studies under the expert guidance of scientists, doctors, and engineers from the larger community.
