Geometry teaches the properties and relationships of points, lines, and planes for both two and three-dimensional figures and their applications to area, volume, and proportion. It includes an introduction to analytic geometry, a study of the structure of logic and deductive, inductive and intuitive reasoning, and the development of proof and construction. Understanding the relationship between geometry and algebra, and how geometry assists algebra in developing solutions to problems are expected outcomes as well.

Pre-Calculus is a course designed to prepare students for calculus. The course will begin with an extensive study of trigonometry. Students will be introduced to trigonometric identities, graphing, and solving equations. The course will continue with a study of vectors, polar coordinates, and analytic trigonometry. In addition, the following topics will be covered: functions; analytic geometry; arithmetic and geometric sequences and series; polynomial equations; and a review of calculus. The review of calculus will introduce students to the limit, derivative, and integral of a function.

Chemistry teaches the composition of matter and the changes in composition that matter can undergo.  In investigating the composition of matter, the structure of the atom and the changes the atom undergoes in the formation of new substances will be explored.  As a traditional chemistry class, emphasis is given to topics that form the basis for college-level courses as well as provide general chemistry knowledge in everyday experiences.  Problem-solving and critical-thinking skills along with the quantitative investigation of matter and its changes are the basis for this course, and prepares students to study other fundamental sciences such as physics and environmental science.
