Truly nonevolutionary in philosophy, spirit, and sequence of study, this one-of-its-kind course begins with the familiar, tangible things of nature and concludes with God’s amazing design at the cellular and chemical level. Abstract concepts are made clear to your teen by the Abeka Academy teacher’s concrete examples, clear explanations, and the 25 labs and 3 field projects. Along with academic knowledge, your teen will gain a greater appreciation for God’s physical creation and, we hope, an increased interest in science! In addition to a foundation in the basics, the course covers the latest advances in man’s understanding of living things—in botany, zoology, microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, cytology, genetics, and ecology. Your teen, along with his video classmates, will also learn step by step how to choose a problem, then plan, experiment, report, and present the findings of a science project. As he becomes acquainted with the students on the video, he will feel as though he is a part of the class. The teacher will even pause to allow “students watching” opportunity to participate.
The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility to set your own daily schedule. The video lease provides a full 12 months to complete the 170 lessons and 6 months to complete 85 lessons for a semester. You also have the option to purchase either the Video & Books or Video (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). A video manual is provided with either option to help you stay on track with the video teacher. Also, record-keeping progress reports are included with both options to document your child’s progress through the school year.
Abeka Academy offers two different program types to meet your family’s specific needs. The Unaccredited program allows for more course flexibility and relies solely on the home teacher to keep track of student records. For an additional charge, the Accredited program provides official report cards and standardized testing as well as reliable record-keeping by our academic team. With either option, academic assistance is accessible through email, live chat, or phone. Conveniently view our Homeschool Agreement before purchase to understand the requirements. Recommended grade 10–11.
