Florida Science: An Environmental Science Adventure
For both your Middle and High School students
32 weeks
$400
6th-10th Grade
($25 Lab Upgrade Available)

This is a great environmental study for students anywhere, while taking an adventure with us in the Sunshine State! This course will explore Florida animals, plants, flowers, trees, geography, geology, climate, weather, and is a good introduction to the science of ecology. Using the richly illustrated secular textbook Priceless Florida, this will be a great opportunity for the students to learn how to translate evolutionary interpretations into a Biblical worldview. Floridians will understand and appreciate their home state in a whole new way.
(Depending on the reading level of your student, approximately 1 hour of homework per day)

In this upgraded version of the "Florida Science" course, students will share the vast majority of the "Online Class Sessions". High School students will have additional assigned reading, study guides, tests, and a few supplementary "Online Class Sessions" to complete.

A list of suggested field trips is offered for your family to enhance your Sunshine State Science adventure! Online fieldtrips and activities are assigned to further the student's experience (we recommend that parents accompany students with all internet activities).

Lab Upgrade: Suggested labs and instructions for students to complete in order for the course to be credited as "High School Science with Lab". Labs are not performed in the "Online Class Sessions". For high school lab credit the student may choose to complete the suggested labs and must complete full lab write ups for the experiments, as specified on the lab syllabus.

A Survey of Man
For both your Middle and High School students
32 weeks
$400
6th-9th Grade

This course will focus on our Creator's grand finale, mankind and how we are to exercise proper stewardship of our bodies. We will explore the creation model of man for 3 weeks, medical history for 5 weeks, and then dive into 10 of the 11 body systems. We will not cover the reproductive system in class due to its delicate nature. Then after 1 week exploring how our body fights foreign invaders, we will spend 8 weeks on what the Bible says about how we should fuel our body and what the health benefits are when we follow God's instructions. Mrs. Frates likes to call this study, "Make your Home a Cancer Free Zone" in hopes that this information may help some families prevent this dreaded disease. This class includes dissections of a sheep's heart, calf's eye, and fetal pig among other experiments.
