Exploring the Site

The Science Academy

The Science Academy at NSLA offers a rigorous academic program combined with the opportunity for students to explore the different sciences.  Through these explorations, students are able to apply their learning and make connections to the world around them.   
During the course of the year, students in the Science Academy participate in a variety of science learning experiments and excursions.  Students study microphages, assist in raising and releasing trout, perform dissections, and work collaboratively to present research.     
We believe that learning about science extends beyond the textbook and is a lived experience for all students.
