Chemistry This is a yearlong College Prep General Chemistry course. We have designed it with 3 things in mind:
  1. Make it Real - lots of hands-on Lab opportunities 
  2. Make it Challenging - we cover all the basic Chemistry that colleges expect an incoming freshman to know. We try hard to give you the skills to be successful in the class and beyond.
  3. Make it Fun! - Chemistry is Life...and life should be fun. 
 
Advanced Placement Chemistry We have the same 3 goals as General Chemistry, but the pace is faster and the problems harder. This course is basically modeled after Freshman Chemistry at a typical 4-year college. Our goal is to give you a feel for what college is like; and the skills and knowledge to help you survive and thrive when you get there.
