Teacher's Classes

Come explore the intricacies of God’s physical creation. This research-based science course introduces students to chemistry and physics, equipping them to be student scientists. This course is broken into two distinct semesters: introduction to chemistry is the first semester and introduction to physics is the second semester. Chemistry units move the student from matter and what it is made of to how matter interacts in chemical reactions, nuclear changes, solutions, and acids and bases. In the physics units, students will learn about how matter and energy move and why they move as well as the different forms of energy. Taught with a biblical worldview, students see how science affirms their faith.

  • IPC is the foundational, honors physical science course that prepares students for upper level high school science studies (Biology/Chemistry/Physics).
  • It is required that the student take Algebra 1 either before or while taking this course to be prepared for the calculations in the Physics part of the course.
  • IPC is a full lecture and lab course including testing that will earn 1 high school honors credit in science.
  • Laboratory exercises hone skills in deduction, reasoning and problem solving, allowing the student to develop a deeper thinking approach to their study of science.
  • There are two major projects assigned:
    • The fall project assigned to students is a guided research paper on a famous scientist.
    • The spring project is a science project demonstrating an IPC concept covered during the year.
  • Homework: 1+ hr/day.
  • Parents partner with Mrs. Davis to insure their student's success by checking Google Classroom weekly for the assignments and overseeing their student's completion of the homework assigned, semester projects,                   and preparation for tests.

Lab fee: $90

Tuition: $650/year or 10 monthly payments of $65.

Textbooks: Bob Jones, Physical Science, 6th Ed. and Physical Science Lab Manual, 6th Ed.

Parents provide the textbooks for their student. Only student texts are to be purchased.

Class time: 3 hours, once weekly

PLEASE NOTE:

*Withdrawal fee after 9/30 of that school year is 3 months of tuition.

*The Laboratory Fee and Mrs. Davis’s science form are due upon registration.

*If lab fee and science form are not received within 2 weeks of registration, student will be unenrolled from class.

*The Lab Fee is non-refundable after August 1st.

Come and explore God's biological creation and learn to think critically through the study of life science. This course explores all living things—starting with cells, moving to plants and animals, and humans. All these concepts are unfolded as a quest to understand the life that God has created. Students will participate in engaging lectures, class discussions, and labs.

  • This class is designed to teach and hone a variety of important skills needed in high school including:
    • Research skills - A guided research paper on a major biome is the spring project.
    • Study skills - by exploring how the student learns best and by reinforcing the information in a variety of ways.
    • Note taking skills - worksheets become more interactive and students learn to record important notes from the lecture.
    • Public speaking/oral reporting skills - the students share their researched information when they do a formal presentation with their research paper.
    • Lab skills - developed during the microscopic labs and dissections as well as other lab explorations.
    • Critical thinking skills - Class discussion builds critical thinking skills.
  • The Lecture introduces the topic and prepares students for the laboratory exercises and testing.
  • Homework: 45 min-1 hr/day.
  • Parents partner with Mrs. Davis for their student's success by checking Google Classroom weekly and overseeing their student's completion of assignments and review for testing.

Lab fee: $80

Tuition: $550/year or 10 monthly payments of $55.

Explore the Universe that God created and investigate how it all works perfectly together to create the world we live in. This course moves the student from the lithosphere of the earth itself, to the hydrosphere in and on the earth, to the atmosphere surrounding the earth, and finally out into space visiting the solar system and the rest of the universe. All of this is a quest to understand God’s created world.
