The science journey of a four-year student at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts begins with a full year of biology in ninth grade.  This required course prepares students to take the Pennsylvania Biology Keystone Exam at the end of the school year.  Both the college-preparatory sections and the honors sections will also include regular laboratory work and lessons designed to prepare students to take more advanced science courses at the high-school and college level.

After a full year of biology, students take a challenging full-year course in chemistry, followed by the student’s choice of physics, environmental science, or anatomy and physiology in their eleventh and twelfth grade years.

In all of the full-year science courses, the focus is on hands-on laboratory work, real-world applications, and solid preparation for college-level science courses.  Integration of the arts in the science curriculum is strongly favored by our science faculty, as creativity and original thought are key components of successful scientific inquiry.
