Science: It’s a girl thing

At Providence Catholic School, science is a girl thing. Beginning in the 6th grade, students are encouraged to find their potential to thrive in science and math.

“Great science is about creating, seeing connections, asking questions, understanding how and why things work,” Middle School science teacher Katie Shults said. “Girls at Providence are given the opportunity to do all of that in the classroom and labs.” 

Through all grades levels, Providence science instructors foster students’ long-term interest in science by choosing lessons that spark initial curiosity about science content. Instructors also introduce students to female role models who have achieved in science and math in order to promote positive beliefs regarding women’s abilities in those fields.

Advanced science and math classes are offered to Providence students at the high school level. Advanced Placement classes are offered in chemistry, biology and calculus.
