This course is for those students who desire a course in university-level freshman biology that meets the College Board AP Biology course requirements. The goal of this course is to provide a learning environment that enables the student to develop a solid understanding of the principle concepts of biology. A substantial amount of time will be required for study. Self-motivation and organization are a must.  Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations as they explore the following topics: evolution, cellular processes—energy and communication, genetics, information transfer, ecology, and interactions.  A complete course and exam description can be downloaded from the College Board website.


ALL students are expected to take the AP exam on Friday May 14, 2021 at 8 AM.
