Apologia’s award-winning Advanced Biology curriculum is written to your student in a conversational tone and cultivates independent learning. The lessons and illustrations are also designed to engage them both analytically and creatively. This course will provide them with an advanced understanding of biology while also preparing them for college-level biology and the ACT.  They’ll learn about the body’s organ systems, ranging from the digestive and respiratory systems to the endocrine and lymphatic systems. It also covers the reproductive system in detail, but is done so with respectful illustrations and descriptions.

Curriculum Overview

From the smallest, most imperceptible parts to the largest, and most familiar ones, this course focuses on the anatomy and physiology of the human body and its organ systems. In this course, your student will be intellectually challenged but also supported as they work through science concepts and thought-provoking (and fun!) experiments. Guided through a personalized format, they methodically learn, self-check, and master difficult concepts before moving on.

In this course they will learn:

  • Foundational Anatomy and Physiology concepts
  • Histology (the study of tissues)
  • Integumentary and Skeletal systems
  • Skeletal Systems Histology and Movement
  • Muscular System Histology and Physiology
  • Skeletal Muscle System
  • Nervous System
  • Central Nervous System
  • Peripheral Nervous System
  • Endocrine System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Lymphatic System
  • Respiratory System
  • Urinary System
  • Reproductive System

Influenced our son to major in Biology

My son used this book during his homeschool high school years. He loved it so much that it influenced him to become a Biology major in college. We were impressed with the high level of preparation this book gave him.

This book very much impressed an RN

I'm an RN and was very impressed with the level of detail and how complete it is. I'd say it's almost on level with a college-level anatomy class. My 10th grader is using this for his science this year and has learned a lot.


Teaches content covered in college

I love Apologia! It actually covers stuff in their high school curricula that isn’t covered until late in College Biology II, Biochemistry, or A&P II. One of the best science curriculums I’ve ever had!
