At Kennedy Catholic High School, we strive to produce scientifically literate students empowered to have productive discussions and make informed decisions. Our science department has over 65 years of combined experience in labs, hospitals and field research positions, and we remain dedicated to helping your student find their passion for discovery and inquiry.
Students are expected to take three years of laboratory science, but it is hoped that their experience here will encourage them to take more! The freshmen develop a common set of scientific skills and methods in their first year by taking a Conceptual Physics class, which lays the foundation for future classes in the natural sciences. Biology, an exploration of life and its processes, is offered second year. Chemistry or UW Chemistry is encouraged as a third or fourth year option. Students may also choose to take a second science class their junior or senior year. We offer several electives, including Physics, AP Physics, Earth and Space, AP Environmental Science, Biotechnology, Anatomy and Physiology.
