Anatomy and Physiology


With the understanding that we have been fearfully and wonderfully made by God, Anatomy and Physiology will study each of the major organ systems in the body with a focus on their primary organs and how they work to enable the body to remain in balance, all through a biblical perspective. Within each unit of study, students will explore how the different organ systems are interrelated and dependent on one another, how the structures within each support their designated functions, and how disease affects each one. Students will have multiple opportunities to build their own models for structures in the body as well as conduct their own research on specific diseases and the treatments available through the most current medical technologies and advancements.


“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him: male and female he created them” Genesis 1:27

Student Feedback

We were told what to do each day of every week, which really helped me keep organised.


I loved the discussions because I got to learn not only my faith but also people’s faith and their learning progress on the topic.


Lessons were easy to follow.
