DIVE Biology is a complete one year curriculum that does all the teaching for you! Designed to be used as either an Advanced Placement course or a regular high school course, it is excellent preparation for the AP Biology exam which awards up to 8 hours of college credit. Topics include but are not limited to Science and Christianity, biochemistry, cells, genetics, Creation/evolution, bacteria, protozoans, fungi, plants, animals, ecology and human anatomy.
Students using DIVE Biology will become adept at working with the scientific method, will be familiar with the use of technology in science, and will develop their lab skills above and beyond most of their peers. Most importantly, students will have a better understanding and appreciation for the rich Christian heritage that exists in science, and will better understand the importance of studying His Word and His Works as they seek to become good rulers of Creation.
- RECOMMENDED FOR 10TH GRADE
- MEETS REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCED PLACEMENT- The eLearning format (above) has more updated content
- COMPLETION OF INTEGRATED CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS IS RECOMMENDED
- ALL MAC OS OR WINDOWS XP COMPUTER AND HIGHER AND SPEAKERS ARE REQUIRED
The course is set up on a 32 week schedule with an average of two video lectures, two worksheets, 20 definitions, and one lab to complete each week. Every 8 weeks there is a quarterly exam.

Great with Apologia Science
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Mar 2016
My daughter was struggling with Apologia Biology last year, so I decided to purchase DIVE Biology to go along with the Apologia Textbook. She is very happy because she finally understands much better the subject and she is starting to love Science again. We will continue to use DIVE with Science High School for Physics and Chemistry too.
Message of Gratitude
Posted by Cathy W. on 10th Dec 2015
Today was one of those spectacular, praise God for home education moments, as I listened in on the above Biology lecture. My daughter loves this course, and I am wholly unequipped to teach high school sciences. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for the truthful expression of Christian truth and ideals presented in this unit. In addition, the acknowledgment and "warning" that students will not encounter these truths in secular science studies and tests, empowers students with these truths. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for your work, and that we were able to connect with D.I.V.E. Science. Truly, a grace and a blessing to my daughter's academic journey. God bless you!
DIVE Biology is such a blessing!

I absolutely love DIVE Biology. I really like how it teaches him to take notes with the lectures and then has follow up questions which he self corrects! My son also likes it and is feeling challenged. I LOVE how it has very detailed weekly labs and corresponding weekly workbook lab pages at the same time. When he is through DIVE Biology, I will have no problem assigning a credit for Biology with a lab! We are looking forward the DIVE chemistry next year at the honors level. I also appreciate Dr. Shormann's godly encouragement to the kids through the program.

The lectures and the labs are outstanding! Having the DIVE cd takes the scariness out of high school science and makes understanding the subject doable. Thanks!

This course was fantastic. Dr Shormann does an excellant job of explaining content and the virtual labs were very well done. We really liked the Bob Jones Biology text with this course. This was a very cost effective course as well.
Dr. Shormann does a great job as well in weaving in biblical truths throughout this course.
