JUNIOR HIGH CLASSES

Life Science

6th – 8th Grade

Taught by

Jill Wilcox

Mondays

10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Starts:  Monday

August 30

Cost of class: $400.00/semester

This course is for Jr High students (6th-8th) and is an introduction to the life sciences. We will cover

  • cells
  • genetics   
  • mitosis/meiosis
  • photosynthesis
  • protein synthesis
  • respiration
  • the 6 kingdoms
  • and human anatomy.

Each week will have a live lecture and hands-on lab. Textbook reading, homework questions, lab paperwork, and tests will be completed by the student at home. A science fair project will also be completed by each student during 2nd semester. A field trip may be offered.

Physical Science

8th – 9th Grade

Taught by:

Jill Wilcox

Mondays

12:00 – 1:30

Starts:  Monday

August 30

Cost of class: $400.00/semester.

This course may be for late Jr High or early High School (8th-9th) and is an introduction to chemistry and physics. It is highly recommended that students take this class prior to high school chemistry and physics. A basic understanding of algebra (how to solve for one unknown) is required.

We will cover:

  • the scientific method
  • measurements
  • energy and motion
  • the nature of matter
  • atomic structur
  • the periodic table
  • elements and their properties
  • and interactions of matter like chemical reactions.
  • Waves, light, and sound will be covered followed by electricity and magnetism.

Each week will have a live lecture and hands-on lab. Textbook reading, homework questions, lab write-ups, and tests will be completed by the student at home. A science fair project will also be completed by each student during 2nd semester. 

HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES

Biology

9 – 10 Grade

Taught by

Jill Wilcox

Mondays

3:30 – 5:30

Classes start Monday

August 30

Grade Level 9-10 a-g certified (if charter approved) – two semester course

Cost of class: $450.00/semester.

This course is a high school level biology class. It meets a-g requirements. 

This class will include such topics as:

  • intro to chemistry
  • cell biology
  • protein synthesis
  • photosynthesis
  • thorough coverage of genetics
  • ecology
  • classification
  • a survey of the kingdoms including: archaebacteria, eubacteria, protista, fungi, plantae, and animalia.

We will also study human anatomy prior to our field trip. Each week will have a live lecture and hands-on lab. Textbook reading, homework questions, lab reports, and tests will be completed by the student at home. One long-term project and two practicum tests will also be included. A field trip to Southern California Health Sciences will be offered 2nd semester.
