SCIENCE CLASSES

• General Science (7th/8th)
General Science is the a systematic introduction to the sciences. This course covers such topics as the scientific method, designing experiments, simple machines, archaeology, geology, paleontology, biology, and human anatomy and physiology. Its scope, therefore, is quite wide. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household items.
• Offered in odd years
• Physical Science (7th/8th)
Physical Science is designed to be the last science course the student takes before high school biology. This course discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton's Laws, gravity, and astrophysics.
• Offered in even years
• Biology (9th/10th)
This course is a college-prep course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university biology course.​
• Offered in even years
• Chemistry (9th/10th)
Chemistry is designed for students who have completed Algebra 1. This course covers fundamental aspects of chemistry such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, physical change, chemical change, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Weaving together concepts and their mathematical applications, the course teaches students how to think as a chemist so they can analyze the major changes that occur in matter.​​
• Offered in odd years

Elective Classes

Physics (11th-12th)
Physics is designed to be the student's first physics course and is generally taken in 11th grade. It provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis; this text is ideal preparation for a university-level physics course. It provides the student with a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton's laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism.
• Offered as requested
• Advanced Physics (12th)
This course covers kinematics, dynamics, rotational motion, gravity, oscillations, waves, optics, thermal physics, electrical forces, electrical potential, DC circuits, magnetic forces, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. Students are also introduced to the topics of special relativity and general relativity.
• Offered as requested
• Advanced Biology (12th)
This advanced biology course covers both the anatomy and physiology of each of the human body’s organ systems for those students who have successfully completed high school biology and chemistry. Please note that the reproductive system is covered in detail, including accurate yet respectful illustrations and descriptions.
• Offered as requested
• Advanced Chemistry (12th)
The course includes detailed discussions of stoichiometry (with limiting reactants), thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, orbital hybridization, molecular orbitals, molecular geometry, chemical equilibrium, and nuclear chemistry. The student also receives an introduction to organic chemistry, focusing on the major functional groups, organic nomenclature, and polymer chemistry.
• Offered as requested
• Advanced Pre-Med (9th-12th)
Explore biology, microbiology, anatomy, and physiology in this course. In Advanced Pre-Med Studies, students in grades 9 - 12 will discover the intricate design of the human body, explore medical history, and unlock the code of life. Students will explore the human body from genetics to bones to surgeries as they discover a powerful array of sciences and medical advances.
• Offered as requested

Science classes are studied as a means to know the Creator better and to see His glory throughout creation. Science classes will have lessons posted each day, Monday through Friday.
