MS Science
Teacher:  Stephanie York
Description: This class will serve as a transition class from elementary sciences to the Apologia curriculum.  Using the BJU Curriculum as described on their website: Life Sciences is the study of the living wonders that surround us every day.  Your students will learn to appreciate the wonders of Nature, as well as its Creator, in BJU Press 7th Grade Life Science Curriculum. The basics of science are covered, including classification of species, cell structure, relationships among organisms, genetics, microbiology, botany, zoology, and ecology, as well as more complicated topics such as evolution and creation, reproduction, and man's relationship to the environment.

Tuition: $495.00 per year/$49.50 per month

Chemistry
Teacher: Katie Learned
Description: Chemistry is the study of matter, and we’re going to study it with our hands and minds in this high school level lab course. This course is suited for students who have taken algebra I. Our text covers significant figures, units, classification of matter, the mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, Lewis structures, molecular geometry, the gas laws, and equilibrium.

Physics
Teacher: Katie Learned 
 Description: Physics is the study of matter, energy, and the interaction between them. This college-prep lab course is suited for students who have a solid grasp of algebra and at least a little experience working with sine, cosine, and tangent. Our text covers 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.

Forensic Science and Anatomy
Teacher: Katie Learned 
Description: This class will give a lab-driven overview of the techniques of Forensic Science, as well as an introduction to numerous topics in anatomy. Focus will be on familiarizing ourselves with the tools God gives us to fight for justice, and during class time students will engage in labs relating to the investigation of crime scenes and the analysis of evidence. Homework will consist mostly of reading and written assignments while we do more hands-on work in class. (As in years past, this class will not discuss extremely sensitive matters, such as rapes or crimes having to do with children.)
