The human body is a fearfully and wonderfully made system. The Anatomy and Physiology course is a high school level, advanced biology course that dives in and take a closer look at God’s marvelous design of the body’s eleven organ systems in detail, how they interact with one another, and the diseases that afflict them. If your student is considering ANY medical, dental, therapy, or veterinary career, this course will help inform their decision.

We don’t just look at the location of your organs, cells, bones, and muscles, but this course is designed to ask the why and how questions. How do bones grow? Why do you get sleepy after Thanksgiving dinner? What actually causes a muscle to contract? These questions and many more will be answered as we study the body’s physiology, the “how” things work, along with the anatomy of where things are. Students will write short research papers on various subjects throughout the year.

This course is structured like a college A and P course, meaning that your student will be exposed to the material in the same order and fashion as the common college A and P course. After completing the course, along with its prerequisites, the student will be well-prepared to take the Biology CLEP for college credit.  This course will primarily consist of lecture with some microscope work and one dissection per semester.
