Welcome to Salesianum's Science Department! The state-of-the-art Abessinio Center is where scientific exploration, analysis and research thrives every day. This beautiful and vibrant center houses a total of 10 science laboratory rooms and eight classrooms that contain a full set of 26 student lecture / 12 very well-equipped lab stations with an additional two independent study labs. Filled with natural light and the latest technology, the center continues to be one of Salesianum’s most beloved and well-used spaces.
A talented and highly educated science faculty challenge and inspire students, at their ability levels, to fulfill their vocations whether they chose to pursue careers in the sciences or simply wish to become well informed and responsible citizens. And, in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales teachings; we believe a strong foundation in the sciences provides the students the spark to become curious, life-long learners who go forth and use their talents and knowledge to help make the world a better place.
