This innovative program, unique to Saint Anthony’s High School, is designed for exceptional Science students dedicated to the mastery of advanced principles in Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering (STEM) and committed to reinforcing their knowledge through both laboratory and theoretical research. The four-year program outlined below will allow our high school students to learn Science at the college level and supplement their knowledge with creative experimentation. As students progress through Science Research they will be given opportunities to present their findings through participation in competitions such as The Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology, The International Science and Engineering Fair and The Regeneron Science Talent Search. Upon successful completion of the Science Scholars Program, a notation will be placed on each student’s permanent transcript to include this unique honor. Additionally, each scholar will receive the Brother Roger Bacon Award at graduation, recognizing this outstanding achievement.
