BFA Science Periodic TableAt BFA, we haven’t forgotten what it was like the first time we learned to distinguish different plants by their leaf patterns, or the thrill of watching chemicals react before our eyes, or the moment we really understood how gravity works. Our science teachers are experts at getting students to experience the joys of discovery, whether in introductory core courses and labs, or in the many challenging Advanced Placement science courses we offer.
