Using the Growing in Christ’s Church study from Great Commission Publishing, the high school Bible class will focus on the importance of church and community. After studying what Christ says about the church, students will apply what they've learned and practice using the necessary skills to build community. Working together, students will design an internal Harbor Community event as well as an external community service project. This hands-on approach in combination with the Bible Study will give our students not only knowledge, but real world application that will clearly illustrate the relevance of the church and community in their lives.
Lab Science: Chemistry
In this one semester course, students will explore the fundamental principles of chemistry, through hands-on activities and observations. We will focus on the big concepts like states and forms of matter, the periodic table and the properties of its elements, ionic/covalent bonding, types of chemical reactions, acids/bases, solutions/mixtures, and energy in chemical processes.
In this one semester course, we will be using the Mind Matters series, developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health. “Mind Matters” is designed to help students understand the biological effects of drug misuse on the brain and body, along with identifying how these drug-induced changes affect both behaviors and emotions. There is no more important time to address these issues than adolescence, when they are forming opinions about the health risks of drugs. The goal of this discussion-based course will be to help students understand the physical reality of drug use as well as inspire curiosity about neuroscience.
Get creative in this inspiring and fun course! Puppetry Arts will combine the history, craft, and production of puppeteering. Students will explore the history of puppeteering with an emphasis on creating shadow puppets, string puppets, and muppet or rod puppets. They will use various materials and techniques as they learn how to design, craft, and create puppets, and they will explore storytelling with puppets through movement and music. The course will culminate in a student made film that incorporates a variety of puppetry and film techniques learned throughout the year.
High school PE will include several different comprehensive units such as Volleyball, Kickball, and a winter session of line dancing. The goal of this class is to provide students with physical activity while learning skills in each of these areas for successful group or team play. This class will be a great opportunity for students to work towards their high school PE requirement, while developing team building skills, exercising, and having a great time with friends.
