"Science is about taking a student’s natural curiosity about the world around him and transforming that into a passion for using science to make the world a better place. At St. Joe’s, that curiosity is fostered through diverse opportunities including a variety of classes focused on hands-on activities, extracurricular opportunities -- such as Science Olympiad and Robotics -- that inspire students to excel at science, and an Internship Program that gives students real-world experience in a particular field."
