Prerequisites: None.

2017-2018 Tuition: $284 per semester or $539 annual

Class Size: 12 students

Earth Science: 1½ hours per week, 32 weeks

This year we cover Geology, Meteorology, Oceanography, and Astronomy.  Earth Science integrates biology, chemistry, and physics in a very real and tangible way.  An understanding of the Earth and the forces that act upon it also provide a foundation of understanding for high school science classes.  If you don't take Earth Science here, make sure you cover these fascinating topics at home.  (It's one of my favorite science subjects!)

As usual, at least 50% of this class is labs.  The labs that come with the textbook are interesting and engaging, and we also use labs from other excellent resources.
