In and out of classes, NCS is all about doing and exploring and challenging ideas. Tapping into their natural curiosity, NCS girls propose real-world experiments and then tackle them with gusto. They come away with a fuller understanding of underlying principles as well as greater confidence and leadership skills. The all-school "hackathon"
and the Science Olympiad team
(the only all-girls team in D.C./Maryland and winner of four consecutive state titles
) both were sparked and are led by students.
This curriculum helps girls discover their strengths and fulfill their academic potential. By the time they graduate, nearly all NCS students will have completed calculus and the vast majority at least one college-level science course. Students say NCS helps them learn how to learn, and nearly 90 percent of alumnae say NCS prepared them well for college.
For those interested in pursuing a career in a STEAM field, our alumnae and faculty assist in obtaining independent-study projects, internships, and fellowships
. Juniors and seniors have gained hands-on experience at the National Institutes of Health, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and George Washington University.
