There is a reading assignment for every lesson. The reading assignment can be completed using our Internet Textbook, which is embedded in the eLearning course for quick and easy access. If you prefer a traditional textbook, we recommend Bob Jones Biology, Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, or Abeka Biology. However, since we have a reading syllabus for just about every publisher, you can choose any textbook you like. SEE READING SYLLABI on the pages 13-15 of the Teacher Guide.
How Do I Access the Course?
Within 1-2 business days after purchase, you will receive an email titled "Login Credentials" with a link to the eLearning campus, the student's user name, and password. If you don't receive it, please check your spam, updates, and trash folders, then contact us here.

Which Email Address Should I List?
Student Email Address
Please provide a different email address for each child enrolled in an eLearning course. For example if, Joe is enrolled in eLearning Biology and his sibling, John, is enrolled in eLearning ICP, they must have different email addresses for each of their accounts. This email address is only used to re-set the password to the eLearning account, if needed. Therefore, any working email address can be listed in the Student Email field, as long as it has not being used by another child you have enrolled.
Parent Email Address
The email address listed during check out, should be the parent’s email. This is the address the the eLearning course login credentials will be sent. This is also the email address used to contact the parent, if needed.
Parents use the student's login credentials to view assignments, grades, results, etc. After each assignment is completed, the student can email the results page that displays all the questions, the correct answer and your student's answer. The results for each assignment can also be viewed by clicking on the grade in the grade book.
Can a parent take the course along with the student?
If the parent would like to complete assignments, a sibling subscription can be purchased for the parent.

Christian & College Prep!
Posted by Dietz Family on 31st Mar 2019
This year our 5th daughter used D.I.V.E. Biology Curriculum by Dr. David E. Shormann. Four of our other daughters have also used this same curriculum with great results. After researching many curriculums, we purchased this curriculum due to the lecture format, labs, and the ability to choose the resource text (we chose Apologia). We wanted our children to learn to take lecture notes and study and test taking skills. The curriculum prepared each of our four older daughters for college level science and lab work. Dr. Shormann delivers what is stated on the front of the curriculum, "A digital video curriculum that teaches college preparatory biology from a Christian worldview." This curriculum is challenging, as it gives the student an upper grade education that some may find intimidating, if they do not keep in mind that that this is preparing the student for college level work and can even be used in preparation for CLEP testing. Our daughter who just finished this course told me that this class was "challenging me to think more vividly about how intricate God's Creation is. Though it took time and application, this course was definitely worth the energy. D.I.V.E Biology was a hearty course, and I fully enjoyed it as it gave me a better appreciation for science, the world around me, and my Creator." Even though I received a copy of the lab book to review, I believe that this curriculum is priced competitively and is a great value. I would highly recommend this curriculum for students who are preparing for college level work.
I look forward to learning everyday!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the DIVE courses. I am finishing up Biology this week and I am quite sad. I have enjoyed this course so much!
Thank you for teaching things from a Biblical perspective. I know it isn't the popular thing to do, but it is so important to have good courses out there.
I love how you showed us the world's theories and thoughts, but then showed the Biblical arguments against them. Even though I have been through apologetics before, the way you presented the arguments gave me an even greater understanding of how to have an intelligent discussion with someone who opposes creationism.
I have grown so much as a student through this course, but I have also grown as a Christian. As I see how His creation works and how marvelously it has all been designed, it only causes me to grow closer to Him. What a wonderful Creator we serve!I praise God for the DIVE courses and how He has allowed them to work in me. I have been so blessed by this great curriculum. Thank you for making Biology fun. I look forward to learning every day. I can't wait until sophomore year so I can get back to DIVE!Keep up the good work :)

Dear Dr. Shormann,
On behalf of my kids, we want to thank you for creating the CLEP Professor and other videos. My oldest daughter has taken the College Algebra and received college credit. She took it along side her first semester of precalculus and mentioned that it also helped her with the class. Now she is excited to take the Precalc CLEP after she finished the class this spring. She would have loved to have DIVE prep for College Mathematics, but she took the CLEP and passed gaining more credit. We have also used
the DIVE Biology and loved it. Thanks so much.
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!
