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 “classmates 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 you with a full 12 months to complete the 170 lessons, which take 40–50 minutes of viewing time each. You also have the option to purchase either the tuition and books or tuition only (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). Both options include the assessment materials, a video manual to help you stay on track with the video teacher, and record-keeping progress reports to document progress through the school year.
Abeka Academy also offers the option of Independent Study, in which you keep your teen’s academic records, or our Accredited Program. Our Accredited Program does not cost a penny more and provides official report cards, an official transcript, and free standardized testing. It also gives you the option to choose digital assessments. With either option, academic assistance is only a phone call or an e-mail away. Recommended grade 10–11.
