Our Mission

At Gowan Science Academy we believe learning happens through exploration, collaboration, and application. We use a cross-curricular approach focusing on science and engineering.  We develop critical thinking skills by discussing, evaluating, and solving real-world problems in a kind, trusting, and supportive environment.  Our ultimate goal is to develop innovative learners who become agents of change in our community and society.
