The Academy of Science (AOS) is a magnet program open to all students who are residents of Loudoun County. The cornerstone of science preparation is a ninth/tenth grade integrated science program, which blends the physical sciences of physics, chemistry and earth science into a seamless, inquiry based lab course in preparation for advanced coursework. The Math program offers courses from Algebra and Trigonometry through Multivariable Mathematics. Students attend the AOS on alternating days, taking science, math, and research courses at the Academy and all other subjects at Broad Run HS on the opposite day. This schedule enables students to maintain involvement in academic and extra-curricular activities at their home school while participating in a research-based challenging math and science program. Please see the AOS website (http://lcps.org/domain/4845) for additional information and admission criteria.
