The science program strives for scientific literacy among its students and the development of the individual’s ability to think as a scientist. All courses emphasize the use of the scientific method which includes observation, experimentation, and theory.

The Science Department at Bishop McDevitt recognizes science as a living and ever changing subject. Knowledge gained is not stagnant but constantly refined, tested, and reassessed with tools steadily sharpened. Striving for scientific literacy among all our students will enable them to stay abreast of the many changes taking place in the growing technological fields within their lives both now and in the future. Three years of science is mandatory for graduation.
