Physical Science: Provides an introduction to the world of physics and chemistry. This course provides an essential foundation for subsequent science courses, including Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. It builds a foundation of basic information regarding matter and measurements early in the text; then furnishes the student with the key principles and scientific laws of classical physics, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, sound, light, and optics. After mastering these concepts, students are equipped to study more advanced concepts such as the structure of the atom, compounds and chemical reactions, and mixtures and solutions.
 
 
Biology: The Biology curriculum is designed to teach students about cellular biology, genetics, taxonomy, microbiology, botany, zoology, and human anatomy. When studying topics such as Creation and evolution, human cloning, abortion, and stem cell research, students are pointed to Scripture as the ultimate authority and are encouraged to develop a biblical perspective about these topics.
 
 
Chemistry: Chemistry provides the history, role, and potential of chemistry; as well an introduction and explanation of matter, atomic structure, elements, chemical bonds, bonding theories and molecular chemistry, chemical compositions and reactions, chemical calculations, gasses, solids and liquids, chemical solutions, chemical thermodynamic, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids, bases, and salts, oxidation-reduction, organic chemistry and bio-chemistry, modern chemical materials, and nuclear chemistry.
 
 
Physics: Physics assists student in discovering how to interact with raw data from actual physical phenomena and historical experiments as they create and evaluate scientific models. This course presents the traditional physics topics of classical mechanics, as well as energy, matter, thermodynamics, electromagnetics, optics, and modern physics, all within a vibrant Christian worldview.
 
 
Geology: This course covers Earth's structures and movements, fossils, relative and absolute time, oceanography, biological and chemical properties, atmospheric structure, pollution, and climates around the world.
 
 
Astronomy: This course will provide the student with an introduction to the concepts of modern astronomy, the origin and history of the universe and the formation of the Earth and the solar system. Students will compare the Earth's properties with those of the other planets and explore how the heavens have influenced human thought and action. The course gives a description of astronomical phenomena using the laws of physics. The course treats many standard topics including planets, stars, the Milky Way and other galaxies, black holes to more esoteric questions concerning the origin of the universe and its evolution and fate.
