• 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 II

    This course is a continuation of studies begun in Latin I. Students will review and build on skills such as vocabulary, grammar, translation, and culture. Continued emphasis on grammar, vocabulary, and grammatical constructions build on Latin I knowledge. One of the goals in Latin II is true rendering of Latin passages into English that relays the sense of the Latin.

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

  • AP Physics 2

    AP Physics 2 covers electric force, field and potential, electric circuits, magnetism and electromagnetic induction, thermodynamics, fluids, geometric and physical optics, and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. This course is equivalent to a second-semester college course in algebra-based physics.

    This course aligns with the College Board’s learning goals for AP Physics 2: Algebra-Based.

  • Earth Science II: Astronomy

    In this course students learn about the universe, solar system, stars, planets, and other celestial objects. Students will examine the Earth’s position in the solar system in relation to the sun and moon. The course also explores the planets and other celestial objects in our solar system, as well as stars, constellations, and celestial coordinates. Students also will learn about the tools of astronomy and how light is studied using telescopes.

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

  • 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 II

    French II students continue to build on the skills from the first level of 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. Students are expected to speak and write in French as much as possible, and assessments will be in French.

    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.

  • Biology II: Ecology

    This course builds upon the detailed understandings of living systems addressed in Biology I. Students investigate the flow of matter and energy in biotic and abiotic components of an ecosystem; geochemical processes; chemical and biochemical processes essential for life; water chemistry and the impact of water on life processes; and processes and interactions of Earth systems. Content gives focus to the individual, populations, communities, ecosystems, biomes, and global issues. 

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