We at Christ School believe that basic knowledge of science is a crucial part of being an informed and engaged citizen. However, what sets the Christ School Science Department apart is its ability to take that basic science background and connect it to the lives of your sons. The processes of science and engineering take center stage at Christ School. Your sons will be steeped in the scientific method and the engineer design process. The ability to apply the knowledge gained through thoughtful study is the key to demonstrating mastery. Your sons will gain the ability to think critically to solve problems, create models to test their ideas, analyze and interpret data that they collect, and communicate their findings through formal and informal mediums.
In support of them on their journey is an instructional team that is committed to the art of science and not solely to its content. Your sons will find that their science and engineering experience will not only center in the state-of-the-art Mebane Science Center’s 8,500 square feet, but will spill out into Christ School’s 500-acre campus and the community. We believe that the teaching science is a kinesthetic experience where understanding and learning are linked to a partnership between place, teacher, and student. This focus on the process of science and engineering makes for a unique educational experience and one that we are confident in and proud to deliver.
