Cheverus science prepares students to be innovative scientists and informed citizens. We are committed to a rigorous foundation in life and physical sciences in the context of our changing world. We recognize that in the recent decade alone, advances in applied and basic sciences have catapulted us into a world of greater opportunities and questions. Our hands-on, inquiry- and lab-based curriculum is grounded not only in rich content but is also guided by our Jesuit mission of service to humanity. We aim to grow leaders, thinkers, innovators, designers and engaged citizens.

Learn about the Cheverus STEM concentration which encourages students to expand academically, co-curricularly and personally while exploring and integrating science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
