Earth Science - This 8th grade course studies composition of our physical world and the systems that govern it.  The science curriculum presents an engaging study of scientific philosophies and models, outer space meteorology, geology, and oceanography. (Bob Jones/Space and Earth Science).

Physical Science - This course studies science and the Christian in measurement, properties, and classification of matter along with models of atoms, the periodic table, forces between atoms and chemical reactions.  The course finishes with physics in action by energy and momentum and matter in action. (Bob Jones/Physical Science)

Biology - A survey of the structure and function of cells and their organelles.  Genetics, theory of beginnings, and various phylum.  Technique and dissection of preserved organisms, along with the use of microscopes. (Bob Jones/Biology)

Biology II - Prerequisite:  Biology  -  A survey of Ecology, Bacteria, Virus, Protozoa, Fungi, Plants and plant processes, Ectothermic and Endothermic Vertebrates - technique and dissection, labs and field work.

Chemistry - Prerequisite:  Physical Science - Survey of the periodic table, elements and trends.  Identifying types of chemical reactions, structure of compounds, writing and balancing chemical equations, and the use of conversion factors in stoichiometry.  Use of laboratory equipment and procedures.  (Glencoe/Chemistry)

Physics - Prerequisites: Physical Science, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Algebra 3 - An introduction level physics class offering students a unique balance of conceptual development and mathematical applications covering mechanics, properties of matter, waves, electricity and magnetism, and modern physics.

Anatomy - Prerequisites:  Chemistry and Biology - Study of the structure and functions of the systems of the human body, including histology and cells.  Cat dissection, physiological lab activities and microscopes are utilized to aid in learning. (Glencoe/Human Anatomy)
