Many Christian families around the world want to enroll their children in an online Christian school that educates them with a religion-focused curriculum. Unlike the secular online school science curriculums based on the evolution perspective, they require a Bible-based curriculum that teaches children about God’s creation. In this blog, we will discuss what science is taught in a 12th-grade in a Christian homeschooling program.
We believe that God has created the Universe and everything else that exists and want to teach our children through a Biblical perspective. However, sometimes choosing the right science curriculum for your kids can be hard. That’s why we have created this blog to help you understand how we teach science to our high school students and what is included in our homeschool’s science curriculum.
Why Science is Important For High School Students?
Science is an important subject and students take a minimum of three science credits for their accredited diploma. So, learning science subjects is essential for high schoolers to complete their high school graduation.
Science plays a vital role in the development of society and improving our lives. Science creates a foundation in the minds of students to understand the world and universe created by God. By understanding the scientific principles and research, students can explore new ideas in this field.
Additionally, science education helps students in improving their problem-solving, critical thinking, and logical reasoning skills. These skills are not only important for students in their school or college life but also play a crucial role in their practical lives.
So, the importance of science is not negligible and all students should learn science subjects in their school life. Now, let’s discuss which science is taught in our Christian homeschool’s high school curriculum.
