This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
Students will learn to see the wondrous beauty in creation through learning about the divine order of biology and the incredible complexity of the cell. If you would like your non-STEM-centered student to take biology and satisfy the high school biology requirement, then this is the course for you.
The start of understanding the sciences is Wonder. To be able to look at the natural world and notice with new eyes what is around you. This deepens into a desire to continue on with the sciences.
