As we enter the 21st Century in earnest, one thing becomes increasingly clear and that is technology and science are becoming increasingly integrated in our lives. At the Frederick Douglass Academy, we endeavor to prepare our students for the world to come in our science courses. The sciences are not only a systematic way to view the world, but also an academic way to challenge and question that world. Through experiments in labs, students take learning from theory to practice. Students are exposed sciences that explore the Earth we live on and the universe around us. It also strives to introduce more theoretical science such as Physics and Chemistry. Advanced Placement courses are offered in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
