Biology

$450

with Anne Martin

Calendar Next session starts Aug 15, 2018 at 9:30 am, runs for 30 weeks

This yearlong high school lab-centered course is intended for homeschooled students studying biology. Depending on the week, labs will run between 60-90 minutes, and are aligned to independent study content through Khan Academy. Students may choose from a standard or advanced independent study track, with work assigned and monitored by the instructor. Topics covered include cell biology, genetics, evolution, diversity, and ecology.

A formal grade for this class is available on request. Certain specialty labs, if requested by class consensus, may come with an additional lab fee, such as dissection kits.

Chemistry

$450

with Anne Martin

Calendar Next session starts Aug 15, 2018 at 12 pm, runs for 30 weeks

This yearlong high school lab-centered course is intended for homeschooled students studying chemistry. Depending on the week, labs will run between 60-90 minutes, and are aligned to independent study content through Khan Academy. Students may choose from a standard or advanced independent study track, with work assigned and monitored by the instructor. Topics covered include atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, properties of gases, solutions, reaction rates and equilibrium, acidā€base reactions, and chemical thermodynamics. 

Prerequisite: Algebra I. A formal grade for this class is available on request. Our "Office Hours" membership is highly recommended for students who lack access to a chemistry-knowledgeable mentor at home.

Earth Science

$160

with Karl Liggin

Calendar Next session starts Aug 15, 2018 at 9:30 am, runs for 15 weeks

This course is the first part of a two-semester Earth & Space Science program intended for homeschooled middle school students. Both courses are recommended in sequence, but the semester long courses may be taken separately if desired.

The Earth Science semester is offered in the fall, with content focused on geology, weather, climate, and biogeochemical cycles, as well as lab skills needed to perform and analyze experiments. This course will include some online reading and resources to review at home, with our on-site portion focusing on hands-on projects and experiments. Space Science will be offered in the spring.

Physics

$450

with Dr. Janine Reardon

Calendar Next session starts Aug 15, 2018 at 9:30 am, runs for 30 weeks

This yearlong high school lab-centered course is intended for homeschooled students studying physics. Depending on the week, labs will run between 60-90 minutes, and are aligned to independent study content through Khan Academy. Students may choose from a standard or advanced independent study track, with work assigned and monitored by the instructor. Topics include matter and energy, velocity, accelerations, force, energy, electricity, and magnetism.

Prerequisite: Algebra II. A formal grade for this class is available on request. Our "Office Hours" membership is highly recommended for students who lack access to a physics-knowledgeable mentor at home.
