High School Science
Libertas Science Classes
Open to all independent study students!
Libertas Preparatory School at Trinity Classical Academy is thrilled to announce the continuation of the High School Science curriculum developed by Dr. Englin at The Master's University and taught for the last 4 years by Dr. Matt Ingle. Dr. Ingle will continue to teach the Physics course and will be overseeing and directing the implementation of the curriculum for the Biology and Anatomy & Physiology courses. All courses will be held on the Trinity Classical Academy campus and are taught from a Biblical worldview perspective.
These science courses are a great opportunity for both students who may purse further higher-level science courses as well as students coming in at the introductory level and desire science knowledge and credit.
Biology course description (Tuesday 2:15 - 3:15): Biology covers the topics covered in the California Standards for secondary level biology instruction and is designed to prepare students for further studies in biology at the collegiate level and to give a background for everyday life concerns and decisions in our technological age. The topics include biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, genetic expression through transcription and translation (protein synthesis), genetic engineering, ecology, biological classification and biological origins. The laboratory includes use of the microscope and the study of the various life forms.
Anatomy & Physiology course description (Thursday 2:15 - 3:15): Anatomy and Physiology covers the topics covered in the California Standards for secondary level anatomy and physiology instruction and is designed to prepare students for further studies in biology at the collegiate level and to give a background for the human body. The topics include cell structure, tissue organization, organ structure, and organ systems. The laboratory includes use of dissections.
Physics course description (Thursday 3:20 - 4:20): Physics covers the topics covered in the California Standards for secondary level physics instruction and is designed to prepare students for further studies in physics at the collegiate level. Physics is the study of energy and motion of the physical world around us. It includes the study of motion (position, dimensions, velocity and acceleration) in a straight line and in circles, gravity, work, machines’ power, heat energy, sound light, electricity, magnetism, and radioactivity. The laboratory includes the use of objects to illustrate the mechanics that govern the universe.
The total fee for the course is $550. A non-refundable $50 fee is due at sign-up to secure your child’s spot (space is limited). The balance of $500 is due on the first day of August and is also nonrefundable. (Or it may be broken up into 2 payments of $250 due on August 1st and Aug 27 or 29 - the first day of class.) Please make all checks payable to Trinity Classical Academy and note “Libertas Science” on the memo line.
