About the course

As a high school biology course, it will set the stage for success in preparing students for college level courses, and give them an understanding of the basic biological world that surrounds them each day of their lives to appreciate the real-world relevance of scientific inquiry.
Students learn about observations and inferences, hypotheses, experiments, scientific theories. They will delve into the chemistry of life from atoms to the chemical structures that make life, as we know it, possible. They will explore the ecology that surrounds life as they investigate ecosystems, biomes, populations, and communities. An in-depth study of cell structure and function, cellular energy, DNA, proteins, and cell cycles will help students comprehend heartier materials as they advance to learn about genetics – inheritance, disorders, and technology, as well as the role of genetics in evolution. Students will also learn about prokaryotes, viruses, protists, and fungi. All this and more taught from a Godly perspective.
