This is a full year high school class that can be applied toward graduation credits. In this high school biology class, students will study God’s creation of life and living organisms through participation in both lectures and labs. Mrs. Guerin, who received a B.S. in Biology, will lead your student, maintaining a Creationist perspective, through the studies of botany, zoology, microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, cytology, genetics, and ecology. The class will be structured with 45 minutes for lecture and one hour for lab work.
Homework is required in order to maintain a full and complete understanding of the material presented. The classes are designed to give a full class curriculum with instruction on Tuesday, however parents are still the main teacher for their student. All assignments will be given with a weekly “homework” schedule to help keep your student on track. It is best to pace your student throughout the week to help them retain the most information. Each class is a full course and does not need additional assignments to be completed but parental guidance and follow-up is necessary.
Grading will be based on accumulated point totals which may be earned through reading, homework, projects, testing and quizzes. In order to receive grades for these complete courses, students must complete all the required work for each course subject. Although grades are given for these assignments and this class, they are not official transcripts.
Students must be 14 years old by December 1, 2021

Annual materials fee paid directly to the teacher by the first day of class, $50.00/student.
