Science

 Sciences


The Art of Science is a fluid discussion of all branches of science that find commonality in one Creator and in their development through history.  Therefore, courses of science explore history, philosophy, and biblical application of the sciences.

As one of the most direct and detailed modes of study for general revelation, the science seminar structure emphasizes the need of every student to understand the order, beauty, and laws of creation.  These fundamentals naturally lead to the discussion and practical application of the sciences, as students are asked to wrestle with their personal creation mandate, as they relate to their creator and his creation.  Finally, all science seminars find practical applications or deductive learning structures, to inspire the imago Dei for the imitating creator-creature, to address the noetic effects of sin through the created order. 

Dialectic (Grades 7-9)

Introduction to Chemistry and Physics

Autumn and Spring 2020-2021
Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00AM – 11:00AM

Designed for Dialectic students (7-9 grade) to explore the discovery of matter and the laws of Creation through the past 2000 years. Students are guided through the fundamentals of atomic structure, energy, the universe and the fundamental laws that describe them.

This course work is generally suitable for students who have basic algebra and geometry skills. This is an excellent introductory course for the foundations of Rhetoric level sciences.

This course has an experimental lab and lecture components. All materials, supplies and textbooks are provided. – $550 / student for the academic year

Stewardship 

Autumn and Spring 2020-2021
Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:00PM – 2:00PM

Designed for Dialectic students (7-9 grade) to explore the revelation of God through creation and pursue their calling as His stewards.  Course work includes ecology, life sciences, and the organisms of Creation- while exploring the structure of the earth and the universe. As students learn how God as ordered Creation, they are challenged to understand the nature of God and His requirements of them to care for His creation.

This course work is suitable for students who have basic Grammar school science skills. This is an excellent introductory course for the foundations of Rhetoric level sciences.

This course has an experimental lab and lecture components. All materials, supplies and textbooks are provided. – $550 / student for the academic year
