Overview of Plans for the new LCPS Science Academy

Report
LCPS Science Academy
To Apply:
Enrollment in Algebra, Geometry or Algebra 2 and Trig. during
the 8th grade.
Accepted students who have not taken Geometry must
complete Geometry either during summer school or from an
online course.
Math

AOS students are enrolled in one Math course each
year.

The cornerstone of math instruction throughout the
program is a unique math/science integration that
accentuates the understanding of math principles
rather than repetition of rote process.

By 11th grade all students are enrolled in either
Calculus AB or BC and by senior year, BC or
multivariable calculus.

A concentration of modeling/statistics is incorporated
at all levels, including science courses.

AOS freshmen will take an EOC SOL test to complete
math verified credit requirements for graduation.

Thomas Jefferson High School for
Science and Technology
To Apply:
Applicants to the freshman class at TJHSST must be enrolled in
Algebra 1 or a higher level math course in grade 8 to apply to TJHSST.
The student must be taking a full-year of high school algebra.
Math
•The five-year mathematics curriculum is a comprehensive
program, which includes the study of algebras, geometries,
topics in discrete mathematics, trigonometry, and functions,
culminating with AP Calculus.
•The sequence of topics has been designed to provide the
mathematics required for successful completion of parallel
science coursework.
•Algebra I, the first course, is required prior to grade 9.
•A full range of electives is provided including Multivariable
Calculus, Linear Algebra, AP Statistics, Complex Variables,
and Differential Equations.
Depending on 8th grade Math
approximately 2/3 of TJ
students will take:
Alg2/Trig
Precalculus
MultiVar/Linear Alg
Calculus
