Science 9 is a continuation or evolvement of Science 8, which is an integrated science course that combines the studies of life science, chemical science, earth science and physical science components throughout the year. In all the varying aspects of our environment and life, we see God's preserving care in a complex, yet orderly creation. We also see the interaction between man and his environment, and through that an interaction between man and God.  Being made aware of this, should lead to a greater reverence and responsibility for life and relationship to God through our everyday activities. 

  1. Chemistry is the study of the molecules of God’s Creation.
  2. Chemistry is the study of the reactions between these molecules.
  3. Chemistry is the study of chemicals useful in technological innovations.

In Biology 12, we have the priveledge of studying the cell and how it functions.  Processes such as DNA replication for cell division, protein synthesis for cell growth, enzymes for cell work and transport of molecules and parts are vital to cellular life.  We relate the structure and function of different cell types to the workings of the human body.  Body systems such as digestive, respiratory, nervous, urinary, circulatory and reproductive are studied in detail.  Both the cell and the human body cry out praise to their Maker by their complexity, function and design.  "For I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Pslam 139:14.  But we also come to realize we are studying the body of a fallen human creature who is subject to disease and death due to sin.

Science 8 is an integrated course that combines the studies of life science, optics/fluids and physical science components thoughout the year.  In all the varying aspects of our environment and life, we see God's preserving care in a complex, yet orderly creation.

This course is designed to help students appreciate God's power in Creation and Providence.  We begin the course studying the Biblical Creation account and comparing that to the secular view of evolution over millions of years.  We then do an overview of all the different groups of organisms including viruses, bacteria, protists, fungi, plants and animals.  Discovering the ecological relationships between these organisms will be the focus of study.

In Science 10, we study various aspects of God's Creation so that we may better glorify God as Creator.  We study ecology; the relationships between living and non-living things in our environment.  We learn to be stewards of Gods creation even in a creation deeply marred by the fall in Paradise.  We study chemistry and the interaction between the smallest particles of creation.  We study the physics of moving objects with relation to position, velocity and acceleration.  We study earth science and focus on the many judgements God uses such as hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes and earthquakes.  God uses these to drive man to depend on Him but man often rebels and drives himself further away from God.
