HIGH SCHOOL CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
High School World History and Geography
This one-year high school course describes and explains the world we live in. Your student will gain a rich understanding of world history by reading the historical narrative and primary source documents, reading classic literature, completing writing assignments and hands-on projects, and studying what the Bible says about issues and ideas in history. It focuses on how people interact with geography and how geography affects communities and countries. (This course can also count towards an English Credit if the added writing assignments and classic literature readings are completed)
High School Apologetics
Students will explore the historical evidence for a biblical worldview. This course will help them develop a sound understanding of why we believe what we believe. Students will be equipped to address concerns of atheism and other variant worldviews. They will explore common questions of faith and develop their understanding of the Christian faith and how to speak to cultural challenges to the faith.
High School Math Lab
This class provides individualized instruction based on the initial student assessment and learning style. Students will use either Math U See, Saxon Math, or Life of Fred as a base curriculum. There will be an opportunity to supplement with additional interactive learning tools as needed.
High School Physical Science
Beginning with an introduction to why we do science, the Physical Science Student Text, 5th ed., gradually builds the student’s understanding of physics concepts in a logical sequence. Beginning with classical mechanics, the text progresses through work and energy, wave phenomena, electricity and magnetism, and light and optics. This transition naturally into the chemistry topics, beginning with the atomic model, then to elements and compounds, chemical reactions, and finishing with solutions, acids, basis, and salts. Every chapter shows by example why the subject matter is relevant to a Christian worldview of science.
