Science

Science is studying God’s creation and his natural and physical laws through observation and experimentation. Scientific findings do not conflict with Scripture, though scientific hypotheses and theories often do, as a result of man’s lack of understanding and sinful nature. Our classes afford students the opportunity to evaluate current data and theories in the light of Scripture.

Junior High Science introduces students to the basic concepts of Life, Earth, and Physical Sciences. Students are encouraged in the reading, critical thinking and experiencing of science. Curriculum includes STEM projects and a science fair that allow students to practice and demonstrate their understanding of the scientific process. Topics covered in Junior High include, but are not limited to:

  • Grade 6: Life Science; classification of living things, plants, animals, protists, monera, and fungi, their structure and functions, ecosystems, environmental science.
  • Grade 7: Earth Science; the earth, land forms, oceans, rocks and minerals, weather.
  • Grade 8: Space Science, Introductory Chemistry and Physics; planets,
    astronomical processes, the universe, space exploration, stars, elements and atoms, chemical interactions, basic physics equations, force, forms of energy.
