          Your Complete High School Level Chemistry Course?

          It depends—homeschooling families’ approaches to teaching and learning are far from cookie-cutter in design. For some families, this course— which is very comprehensive in scope—will be enough to provide a thorough grounding in Chemistry.

          Other families may prefer to use these courses as a starting point, one that provides their student with the correct foundation; an eye and mind-opening overview of chemistry, before beginning textbook study. A Course Accreditation Program, along with the Guidebook (digital PDF), is included for those who want this course to serve as the foundation of a full school year's Chemistry course. In either case, students will find the course captivating and informative. In fact, the entire family might enjoy watching each segment together and engaging in lively discussions about the material.

          Not Homeschooling?

          The 101 series is even more essential!
          If your children are in a public or private school, the 101 series will be essential viewing. These courses will provide a clear Christian context in which they can place all the information they are provided in their regular classes. They'll get the big picture that will help them correctly interpret what they are taught in school, and learn that education can be exciting, challenging, and fun. Teachers, too, will find these courses invaluable.

          *Intended audience age: 15 and up. However, every word, graphic, and picture in the 101 series has been carefully selected and is appropriate for the entire family.
