Condensed Summer Online Classes
Complete a Two Semester Class in 5 Intense (but fun) Weeks
5 Week Session: May 24 – June 25, 2021

Who Should Take These “Life Prep” Condensed Summer Classes?

– Students who: 1. will likely be attending college but will likely not be college science majors, or, 2. will likely not be attending college.
– Students who would like to complete one of these classes in the summer so that they have more time during the school year for other classes / activities / sports, etc.
– Students who are behind in taking science classes and would like to get caught up over the summer.

– Students who would like to work hard for 5 weeks to complete a high school level science class while creating a tremendous sense of accomplishment and developing camaraderie with their classmates.

Condensed Summer Class Details

– Class meets every weekday for 5 weeks – May 24 through June 25, 2021 with an average of 30 to 40 minutes per class.
– Students are NOT required to attend the live class – they can watch the class recording instead at their convenience that day.

– Students will have an average of 2 hours of homework per day which will be turned in every weekday.

– Students will complete 6 labs in our virtual online lab and write a full lab report for each lab.

– Students will take 5 exams (1 exam every Friday).
– Teacher: Greg Landry

– Greg Landry’s textbook PDF will be used for the class and will be provided to students as a part of the class.

– Transcript: 1 year credit for high school science with lab
– Tuition fee for one class: $880. Note: this includes access to our virtual online laboratory ($280 value) at no additional charge.

My “life prep” classes are equivalent in depth and breadth to a standard high school science class but taught from a Christian worldview and specifically designed to be interesting and appealing to “non-science” students.

The depth, breadth, and pedagogy of many college-prep science classes leaves many “non-science” students frustrated, uninterested, and ultimately learning very little. I find that students in this situation often miss the big picture and they don’t have an overall understanding of the subject matter that is so critical in these classes. They can’t see the forest because they’re lost in the trees. Our “life prep” classes enable students to see the forest!

FAQ’s for Online Classes

 

Which time zone are class times?

 

— All class times are Eastern Time (ET)

 

Are students required to attend classes at the live time?

 

— No. They are not penalized in any way for not attending the live classes – they can watch the class recording every week. The class recording is posted to the student’s class homeroom page within 3 hours after the live class and is available to students 24/7. We have many students who, because of schedule conflicts, are not able to attend some or all live classes.

 

What is the tuition fee for live online classes?
 

— Student Success Skills is $155

— Science 101 is $155

— ACT Prep Online Bootcamp is $380

— One semester live class is $440

— Two semester live class is $880

 

Are there labs / lab reports with the live online science classes?

 

— Yes, for all science classes except 4 week classes. We have developed interactive virtual online labs ($280 value) that are a part of our live online classes – there is no additional cost to students.

 

This enables students to perform very realistic labs online. Most public and private schools now use virtual labs. Students are able to actually perform tasks in the lab – It’s a very realistic experience for students who are able to experience and participate in many labs not typically possible before college for high school students. This is very interactive – it’s NOT watching a video.

 

Students are able to virtually pour liquids, light burners, move things in the lab, weigh things, measure temperatures, record results, etc. Most students love these labs. There are no supplies to purchase or smelly dissections – EVERYTHING is done online. Students are instructed on how to produce quality lab reports and they turn-in formal lab reports (with each lab experiment) which are graded.

Do you offer early registration or sibling discounts?

We typically open registration for the upcoming homeschool year in January with the largest early registration discount. That discount decreases every week and ends in April. I’m sorry but we don’t offer sibling discounts.

Questions? Click here to contact Greg Landry

 

You offer “life prep (standard)” math classes and two types of Biology and Chemistry online classes; “college prep” and “life prep (standard)” – what’s the difference?

 

“Life Prep (standard)” biology, chemistry, physics, and math online classes  are standard high school level classes that are less rigorous than our “college prep” classes and are specifically designed to be interesting and appealing to “non-science” or “non-math” students – students who are either;  1) not going to be science or math majors in college, or  2) are not planning on going to college.

 

It gives students a firm foundation and basic understanding of the subject. It prepares them for life – to move into adulthood with a keen understanding and appreciation of God’s magnificent creation! It is similar in intensity, depth, and scope to a standard public or private high school class, but, taught from a Christian worldview and created specifically to be interesting and appealing to “non-science” and “non-math” students.

 

The depth, breadth, and pedagogy of many college-prep biology, chemistry, physics, and math classes leaves many “non-science” or “non-math” students frustrated, uninterested, and ultimately learning very little. I find that students in this situation often miss the big picture and they don’t have an overall understanding of the subject matter that is so critical in these classes. They can’t see the forest because they’re lost in the trees. Our “life prep” classes enable students to see the forest and will allow them to learn science or math through the lens of their God-given interests and talents.

 

Can students use any edition of the textbook(s) for a class?

 

— No, to be sure everyone has the exact same textbook, you should be sure the ISBN number matches the ISBN number we have listed on this page for a class textbook.

 

Are students issued an end-of-class grade for a class?

 

— Yes, students receive an end-of-class grade in their grade book online. This serves as an independent evaluation of a student’s performance. For some colleges and universities, this validates homeschool grades – especially in the sciences and for math.

What are details of the online classes?

 

— Students are guided in their study and held accountable to complete the work, yet are led toward being independent learners and critical thinkers. Parents do not have to do any grading or anything else for classes but are encouraged to be aware of what their students are doing.

— We use Canvas (considered by many to be one of the best online class platforms) as a virtual “homeroom” for a student’s online class….

—->  Classes meet for 60 minutes once per week in our online “classroom” in Canvas. Students can see and hear the teacher (Professor Landry) and the classroom whiteboard, and can communicate with the teacher via chat in class and via our class homeroom email outside of class. Students can attend the live class or watch the class recording 24/7.

—->  Students have a weekly homework turn-in assignment that they turn-in at their “homeroom” in Canvas.

—->  Students perform very realistic labs (for science classes) in our virtual online lab and write lab reports which are turned-in and graded at their “homeroom” in Canvas. The don’t need any supplies – everything is done online. Professor Landry is obsessive about teaching students to write quality lab reports.

—->  Students take graded exams (approximately once every three weeks) at their “homeroom” in Canvas.

—->  Student’s grades for homework, lab reports, and exams are available to them in the Canvas grade book in their “homeroom” as well as their current overall grade for the class.

—-> Students are issued a final grade at the end of the class.

 

—-> Students are taught by Greg Landry, a 20-year veteran homeschool dad and former college professor. Greg is a Christian and young Earth creationist. He has taught and mentored several thousand homeschooled students and college students in various capacities for over 20 years. Click here to see his bio.
