In this course, students will expand their understanding of God’s complex creation. Students will classify systems to survey living organisms. They will participate in lab activities and simulations to examine the structures and processes in living organisms. By applying concepts in statistics and probability, students will explore the mechanisms for inheritance and variation. Students will also analyze interactions within ecosystems and the effects of human activity. This course has a lab component.


“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

Ever since humans were first created, we have been exploring the wonders of Creation around us. As a child, you were probably curious about all the plants and animals around you. You were acting as a biologist without even knowing it! In this Biology course, we will take a closer look at God’s Creation and discover intricate details about the plant and animal kingdoms.

Just as Adam named all the organisms in the Garden of Eden, we will also be learning how biologists today classify and name all the organisms in Creation.

Join me as we embark on an in-depth adventure into exploring the wonders of God’s Creation!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Student Feedback

I really liked the fact that there weren’t tests every week, and that the models were split up over a couple weeks. I found this setup very helpful!


I felt like there was a good work load overall, and I loved that the weeks were only four days.


This is a great course and I like how it is organized. I am really enjoying science.
