Learning to take care of the bodies God gave us.
HEALTH IS A YEAR-LONG COURSE FOR STUDENTS IN GRADES 9-12.
With its incredible complexity and beauty, the human body is one of the best demonstrations of God’s creative power. As Christians we are called to glorify God in every aspect of our lives, and that includes our bodies. Taking care of these earthly vessels not only better equips us to serve God’s Kingdom, but also honors our Creator by giving thanks for the wonderful bodies that God has given us, and this course aims to do both. Students will learn more about how the human body works, as well as how to care for it. This course is available in You Teach format.
The Veritas Approach to Electives
Electives give students the opportunity to pursue particular interests. Core curricula such as Latin, Logic, Rhetoric, Math, and Science are essential to every student. Electives then allow students to pursue areas that interest them.
Veritas is excited to offer a growing collection of electives. We expect to add to the list often. Good subject matter that will complement the students’ overall education, good curricula along with a good plan, enough students interested in the topic, and a great teacher are all that’s needed to consider an elective.
And some electives can be taken for dual credit in 11th or 12th grade, giving students some of the hours they’ll need for a college degree.
