• Spanish III

    Spanish III is designed to increase students’ communication skills in Spanish and deepen their understanding of Spanish-speaking cultures throughout the world. Emphasis is given to the continued development of basic interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational language skills. Theme-based vocabulary further expands students’ ability to describe the world around them, including topics like cooking, travel, the home, sports, technology, professions, and fashion. Students will learn to express a variety of actions in the past, present, and future tenses.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Spanish.

  • Spanish II

    Spanish II is designed to further students’ communication skills in Spanish and deepen their understanding of Spanish-speaking cultures throughout the world. Emphasis is given to the continued development of basic interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational language skills. Theme-based vocabulary offers students opportunities to learn words relevant to their daily lives at home, school, and beyond. Students will learn the present, preterit, and progressive tenses of verbs as well as nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, and prepositions.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Spanish.

  • Spanish I

    This course introduces students to the Spanish language and Spanish-speaking cultures throughout the world. Primary emphasis is given to the development of basic interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational language skills. Students practice listening, reading, speaking, and writing based on everyday patterns. Topics of study include greetings and introductions, personal descriptions, family, weather, holidays, sports and activities, school, and daily life.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Spanish.

  • Latin I

    Latin I is an introduction to the language, culture, and history of the Ancient Romans. The course focuses on Latin grammar, vocabulary, and translation with minimal focus on history, culture, and pronunciation. Latin I offers students a unique opportunity to appreciate the continued influence of the Roman world on our culture, language, history, and government.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Latin.

  • AP Physics 1

    AP Physics 1 covers Newtonian mechanics (including rotational dynamics and angular momentum); work, energy, and power; and mechanical waves and sound. The course also introduces students to electric circuits. AP Physics 1 is equivalent to a first-semester college course in algebra-based physics.

    This course aligns with the College Board’s learning goals for AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based.

  • Physics I

    Physics I is an algebra-based introductory survey of the field of physics, which is the study of matter and energy and their behaviors and interactions. Topics include one- and two-dimensional kinematics, forces, energy, momentum, waves and sound, optics, electricity, and modern physics.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Physics.

  • Earth Science II: Oceanography

    In Oceanography, students will take a journey through the ocean realm. Oceanography applies the sciences of geology, biology, chemistry, and physics to Earth’s oceans. The course also examines engineering for the development of devices that allow scientists to explore underwater depths.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Department of Education’s Science Content Guidelines for Earth Science II: Oceanography.

  • Earth Science I

    Studying something as large and complicated as the Earth is quite an undertaking. In order to make it manageable, this course is divided into the scientific areas of geology, meteorology, astronomy, and oceanography. Each of these areas of study helps scientists understand the activity and make-up of our planet. In this course, students will use scientific methods and investigations to make each area of study applicable to their daily lives.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Earth Science.

  • French I

    French I students will begin their study of French by developing the five major skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and cultural competency. Students will study the richness of culture in Francophone countries, comparing and contrasting the habits of the Francophone people to our own, while expanding their vocabulary, communication, and grammar skills.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for French.

  • Chemistry I

    In this course students explore the interaction of matter and energy that applies analytical investigation, observation, experimentation, models, evidence, and systematic processes to the manipulation of chemical quantities and problem solving applications in various earth science, life science, and other physical science fields of study. Emphasis is given to qualitative and quantitative study. Students will participate in virtual, interactive chemistry laboratory experiences.

    This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Chemistry.
