Department Philosophy

We believe that studying science at St. Pius X Catholic High School enhances the students’ understanding of the physical and biological environment in which they live. Through the study of science, the students will develop an appreciation for their physical and spiritual place in God’s world and recognition that the consequences of technology cannot be calculated without moral values.

It is the goal of the St. Pius X science curriculum that “science …always be accompanied by the wisdom that belongs to the permanent spiritual heritage of humanity.” (Pope John Paul II, October, 1981) Hurley, Mark J. The Church and Science. Boston: The Daughter of St. Paul, 1982.
