AP Biology

Course Length


The primary goal of AP Biology is to become motivated to a greater understanding of the created world to enable us to respond to God by giving Him honor, glory and praise for all we will observe and study. AP Biology will provide opportunities to develop interest in careers (Christian service) in health sciences and biotechnology. It is designed to be the equivalent of a college introductory biology course. Students may take AP Biology after the successful completion of sophomore biology and high school chemistry. First semester will emphasize chemistry of life, cells and cellular energetics, heredity and molecular genetics, and a Christian critique of evolution. Second semester will emphasize the diversity of organisms, structure and function of plants and animals, and ecology. It includes inquiry based laboratories to practice the scientific method, accuracy in measurement, collecting data, graphing and reporting.

Fees: A fee of $95 will be charged to the students’ account in the Spring to cover the cost of the College Board exam and administration.

Prerequisites: Students wishing to take this course must fill out an application Biology Chemistry
