FOSS Science Initiative

Stephens FOssAt Divine Mercy Catholic Academy, our students engage in an array of hands-on learning experiences to help them develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. This includes scientific inquiry fostered through the resources and best practices of the nationally-recognized FOSS program.

Developed at the prestigious UC Berkley's Lawrence Hall of Science, this innovative, inquiry-based science curriculum challenges students to delve into the hows and whys of science, and work together to gain a better understanding of the role that science plays in everyday life.


We invite you to join us as we raise the funds to fully integrate the curriculum across all grades. It's easy to support this initiative. Just mail your donation to:
