Creation Philosophy

As Biblical Creationists, we expect that the universe would be understandable and operate in a logical fashion since it was created by a logical God. We interpret cosmic evidence in light of biblical history, which is consistent with Biblical Creation. God designed the human mind, allowing us to study and understand aspects of the universe. No field of science would be possible if the universe were an accident. 

Course Specifics

There will be many assignments but no major exams. This course provides students with the opportunity to contemplate science and Creation without the pressure of the exams that core sciences require. 

Recorded Classes

All classes are video recorded and available for students to watch later so they don’t miss any instruction. If the day/time of the class does not work well for your student, you can still register for this live class. Notify your teacher that you will watch the recorded class within a day or two of the live class and meet all live class deadlines. If a student watches the recorded classes, they will still have full access to the Apologia student portal and the instructor.

International Students

We welcome international students from across the world. Please note that all classes are taught in the eastern time zone.
