It is the goal of the Chemistry Department to provide our students with a solid foundation in the Chemical Sciences while fostering an appreciation for Science in general. To do so, we offer a wide range of courses which include those required for graduation such as Modern Chemistry along with many geared for students who have a strong interest in the study of Chemistry such as Organic Chemistry.
The completion of the requisite course work, traditionally in sophomore year, enables the students to explore more advanced and specialized topics in electives such as Organic Chemistry and Advanced Chemistry Lab. We also offer research in Chemistry through our Regeneron program, and our advanced placement class, AP Chemistry, is designed for those who wish to continue studying Chemistry at the college level.
The department currently has one bi-annual publication called SIGMA which is a research magazine that presents recent student abstracts and research papers that were submitted to the Regeneron Science Talent Search competition along with articles written by the members of the SIGMA publication club.
