Enjoy our State-of-the-Art Science Center

We put a lot of thought into how you would use the new Dr. Daniel M. Asquino Science Center. Your ability to learn our rigorous curriculum was most important. So we built a space that would help you. For example, you will notice your lab benches are not the traditional black color. This is because studies show lighter-colored rooms improve learning. We let in plenty of natural light with floor to ceiling windows and interior glass walls. We even keep the air in the lab fresh — there is 100% airflow turnover every hour in all lab rooms. When you are comfortable and healthy, you learn better. If you haven’t seen the new Dr. Daniel M. Asquino Science Center and 2,300-square-foot greenhouse, we invite you to schedule your visit.

"I always felt like I fit in. I was very nervous and I put off for a long time going back because I felt that I was much older and that I’d feel silly just going in and there’d be a lot of young students. Once I got to the Mount, it was nothing like that at all."
