This course follows the school-year curriculum and fulfills the Parish Junior year science course requirement. This fast paced course uses more advanced laboratory techniques and serves as a lead-in for students with intent to take AP Biology.

This course focuses on life’s organizational hierarchy, emergent properties, cellular basis, unity in diversity, and inheritance of biological information. Through laboratory experiences, demonstration and lecture, emphasis is placed on the correlation of form and the function of living things. A common core theme of evolution underscores the dynamic nature of life.

Students taking this course must still enroll in five core courses during their Junior year. Biology Honors is a full year course which counts as one credit toward Parish graduation requirements, and it fulfills the 11th grade science requirement.
