Science
The scope and sequence in the CTC science classes depends on the ultimate goal of the students and parents.
The following classes will be offered, and will meet the Jr. High Science requirements: Life Science and Earth Science. General high school science classes that will be offered are: Biology & Chemistry and will meet high school graduation requirements.

Exploring Creation with Biology is a Christian-based, rigorous, college preparatory course in Biology that will cover most of the textbook at a rate of one module every two-three weeks. Topics covered include cellular function, DNA, classification, genetics, creation vs. evolutionary theory, ecology, and organisms from Kingdom Monera, Protista, Fungi, and Animalia. Because the course is difficult and not all children learn the same, the material is presented in a variety of learning styles including PowerPoint presentations, videos, lectures, hands-on activities, labs and worksheets. This will ensure the success of every student who does the required homework. Grades are based on class participation, labs, homework, and test scores. This will fulfill one year of high school Biology. Supply fee includes tests, all handouts, consumable lab supplies and dissection specimens. Textbook is not included in the supply fee. This class requires homework.

The purpose of this class will be to give students a more in-depth look at the human body. This advanced placement class will include an in depth study of the systems of the human body, and how God has designed each one to work separately and as a part of the entire living system. Students will participate in science through labs (including dissections), discussions, observation exercises, lectures, quizzes and tests, and homework assignments. Supply fee includes materials for labs, handouts, notebooks and all basic materials needed in class.
