This college preparatory course emphasizes the study of the human body. Course content includes the study of major body systems including: digestive, respiratory, muscular, circulatory, skeletal, reproductive and nervous; along with cell reproduction, metabolism, oxygen capacitance, and digestion.


This course gives students an excellent background in biological science. They will learn about the complicated chemical reactions which take place inside living things. Topics include biochemistry, DNA technology, genetics, evolution, bacteriology and a survey of the various kinds of living things. Students are kept up-to-date on the latest biological findings.


This course emphasizes the concepts of physics with more reliance of non-mathematical critical thinking activities than on algebraic problem solving. Students continue their study in lab-based sciences and understand and appreciate the rules that govern the physical world.

Earth Science

Earth Science is a study of the earth and its place in the universe. Through laboratory activities the student acquires a foundation in physical geology, historical geology, environmental science, meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy. Students also develop basic skills which provide the foundation for subsequent science courses.

Environmental Science

Man’s relationship with his natural surroundings has historically centered on the conquest of nature. In the twenty-first century, man must learn to live within the limits of planet Earth. This course will examine the scientific principles governing the relationship between man and the Earth’s land, ocean and atmosphere. Man’s needs versus the needs of the remaining living organisms are addressed.


This college-preparatory course extends the basic concepts and skills introduced in Algebra I and Geometry. It introduces complex numbers, functions, quadratic systems, and statistics and prepares students for advanced mathematical concepts or statistics and probability.

Physical Science

The purpose of this course is to provide opportunities to study the concepts of matter, energy, forces, waves, sound, light, friction and gravity. Students will learn their applications through exploratory investigations and activities. Knowing these basic scientific principles allows them to understand our modern technological society.
