Physical Science 5021 (9)
Physical Science is a year-long course surveying God’s creation of the physical world. Basic concepts in chemistry, physics, and earth science are studied. The course includes class demonstrations and labs in which students can personally investigate concepts presented in class.
Survey of Physical Science NC 5022 (9)
Survey of Physical Science is a year-long course designed as an alternative to Physical Science. It is intended for those students that, because, of learning difficulties, would experience severe problems in successfully completing Physical Science. Basic concepts in chemistry, physics, and earth science are studied.
Biology 5743 (10)
Biology is a two-semester course dealing with life as a gift of God and not a happening of chance. The course combines the lecture-discussion method with scheduled laboratory experiences. The student is encouraged to view his body as a temple of the Holy Spirit and is encouraged to treat it and his environment as wondrous gifts of divine creation.
Survey of Biology NC 5744 (10)
Survey of Biology is a two-semester course. It is designed to meet the needs of the students who are required to take a course in biology, but who, because of various learning disabilities, would have difficulty completing the regular biology course. The course is designed to give the student a basic understanding of life on Earth. In particular, the student is encouraged to view his body as a temple of the Holy Spirit, and is encouraged to treat it and his environment as wondrous gifts of divine creation.
Earth Science 5510 (10,11,12)
Earth Science is a one-semester elective course which provides a broad survey of the major topics connected to earth science: geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. The student is encouraged to view Earth as a wonderful temporary home provided for us by our gracious God. (Prerequisite: Successful completion of Physical Science)
Chemistry * H 5405 (11)
Chemistry is a two semester honors course which provides an introduction to chemistry that is suitable for both college-bound and non college-bound students. It is a laboratory-oriented course in which the composition and properties of substances are investigated, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Topics include chemical formulas, reactions, molar relationships, stoichiometry, atomic structure, periodic properties, bonding, gases, and solutions. Chemistry is a central science, laid in place during creation, and the course is designed to give students a foundational understanding of the matter which makes up their physical and biological surroundings. Concepts are reinforced with simulations and laboratory investigations. (Prerequisite: C in Algebra 1)
Environmental Science 5505 (11,12)
Environmental Science is a two-semester course designed to help students become better stewards of the creation God has given them. The interactions of plants, animals, and humans in their environments are studied. Concepts are reinforced with hands on labratory experiments, projects, and collaborative research work both online and in the field (Maximum enrollment: 24)
Anatomy and Physiology 5710 (11,12)
Anatomy and Physiology is a one-semester elective course intended particularly for those students who plan to pursue careers in health care and medicine. The anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) of each major organ system in the human body will be covered. (Prerequisite: Successful completion of Biology)
Advanced Biology * H 5747 (12)
Advanced Biology is a two-semester course designed to provide a more in-depth study of nature and the wonder of God’s gift of life. Topics to be covered are the chemicals of life, cell biology, genetics, biotechnology, and a survey of the kingdoms of life with special emphasis on plant life and ecology. The course includes regularly scheduled laboratory experiences, which reinforce and expand on topics presented in lecture. (Prerequisite: B- in Chemistry)
Physics* H 5317 (12)
Physics is a two-semester honors course which provides an introduction to physics that is suitable for college-bound students, introducing the laws of creation as they apply to the movement of matter through space and time. Topics include motion, force, energy, heat, sound, light and electricity. The course is primarily quantitative and stresses the use of models and mathematical analysis. Concepts are reinforced with simulations and laboratory investigations. (Prerequisite: C in Algebra 2)
