The Science Department offers a wide variety of courses to engage and prepare students for Regents and medical programs to help ready them for the future. Through extended Lab time and Vernier digital lab equipment and data-collection software, we actively engage all students in intensive hands-on, STEM-focused learning so that they may greet the technological challenges of the 21st Century with skill and confidence.
We offer several Advanced Placement and college-accredited courses for students who plan to pursue careers in medicine, pharmacy, engineering or scientific research.
In partnership with Maimonides Medical Center and Calko Medical Center, we now have more opportunities to provide students within the fields of science.
Courses in the medical program for students interested in pursuing a career in Medicine include:
- Anatomy & Physiology, bridged through St. John's University
- Biomedical Professions
- Additional college level courses such as Biology and Chemistry
- Field experience through Maimonides Medical Center and Calko Medical Center including:
- Volunteer and paid internships after school
- Summer Women in Science Internship
- Shadowing doctors of orthopedics and other select specialties.
Bishop Kearney is also proud to offer a Biomedical Science Program through Project Lead The Way, the nation's leading provider of science, technology, engineering, and math programs. The first course, Principles of Biomedical Sciences, is a STEM course designed to engage students in activities including dissecting a sheep heart and looking at everything from blood spatter to DNA to determine factors that led to the death of a fictional person.
