The Regis Jesuit High School Science Department provides a strong college preparatory curriculum to meet the varied needs of the Regis Jesuit students. Upon graduation the student will have the knowledge and skills needed for college success. Emphasis is placed upon laboratory and technological skills including computer-based laboratory activities. In support of the Regis Jesuit Mission and Jesuit education, the Science Department endeavors to implement Ignatian Pedagogy and the pursuit of excellence. Honors classes and college preparatory classes are available at each grade level, and it is possible to change between tracks as interests and needs change. Honors Biology (usually freshman year) and Honors Chemistry (usually sophomore year) are designed for students who show interest and ability and to prepare for the Advanced Placement courses. Advanced Placement Chemistry and Biology are offered for interested and prepared students. Students are required to take 3 years of Science to graduate but a large percentage take more Science.
