Observe, Experiment, Innovate

The foundation for any study of science is the truth of God as the Creator and sustainer of all things. The Science Department will help you to understand the principles of science from the perspective of God’s truth about Himself and His Creation. All of the science courses will provide you with a foundation of scientific study grounded in biblical truth. The core of the science curriculum is the physics, chemistry, and biology courses.
