Science

Mrs. Hosein (a former middle school science teacher has devised the science curriculum for the Jackson Academy. Science is taught mainly through a combination of subscription services ranging from Brain-Pop to the Great Courses lecture series, and science encyclopedia sets that explain the topics of earth space science, biology, chemistry, anatomy physiology, and geography. Although some of our students have taken CLEP courses for Biology among other courses, science at the Jackson Academy is highly didactic and supported on basis of specific requests. This support is offered through the purchase of equipment e.g. microscopes and telescopes, chemistry sets, and other commercial experiment kits. Our students regularly attend Science and Engineering field trips and have a nation wide member ship in over 50 participating Science museum. Mrs. Hosein Senior (a retired medical professional) is also on the curriculum advisory staff for science.
