Academy Hill's robust science curriculum focuses not only on teaching scientific information, but also on equipping innovative and insightful thinkers. Our science curriculum, beginning at the elementary school level and continuing through the middle school, is built around teaching students scientific process skills:

  • Observing
  • Communicating
  • Predicting
  • Hypothesizing
  • Drawing conclusions
  • Inferring
  • Estimating
  • Measuring
  • Working with variables and data

Each grade level investigates topics in Earth and Space Science, Life Science and Physical Science. Our older students additionally explore Cell Biology, Energy Based Physics and Chemistry.

Experiments are largely hands-on, giving the students a real feel for the craft of a scientist. Our state-of-the-art science lab was constructed in 2015.
