“Lord, I stand in awe at your deeds” for “His splendor covers the sky and His glory fills the earth” (Hab 3:2).
The study of science at St. William of York Catholic School is essential to integral formation. Our primary purpose is to instill in children a sense of awe over the goodness, order, and beauty of the created world. This sense of wonder is the inspiration and essential starting point for all we do in science class.
Our young scientists enjoy being outdoors on our spacious campus classifying and naming the things of nature, indoors for a hands-on lab activity or drawing what they see through the microscope or telescope. But while teaching our students to think, act, and communicate as accurate, safe, and, enthusiastic scientists, we are committed to science as an academic discipline worth mastering for its own sake, an essential part of whole child formation.
