INTRO LOGIC/THINKING LIKE A CHRISTIAN
Semester 1: Introductory Logic
All humans are created by God to be rational beings, but not all humans train their mind to think well. People make decisions small and large every day based on poor thinking, and there is a great need to think clearly and systematically. Logic and Critical Thinking is the art and science which accomplishes this end. Students will "train their minds" to answer the bad arguments shouted by the world and refute unclear thinking. Students will develop critical thinking skills while learning to think logically in all areas of life and study. Students will learn to define terms, recognize basic types of statements, use syllogisms, and identify fallacies.

Semester 2: Thinking Like A Christian
Students will learn to clearly understand ideas and forces that are shaping our times. They will learn the truths associated with the Christian worldview and how they compare with the beliefs and practices of other leading worldviews of our day. From Christianity to Islam, Secular Humanism to Marxism, New Age to Postmodernism, this class will intellectually and spiritually prepare students to more effectively engage the culture. Suggested for all grades through adults. Prerequisite: none

Teacher(s): see "Schedule" at www.ApologiaAcademy.com or click HERE

PHILOSOPHY & ETHICS
Semester 1: Introduction to Philosophy
To understand our culture today, students need to know the ideas espoused by ancient thinkers like Plato and Aristotle, Christian philosophers like Augustine and Aquinas, and molders of modern thought such as Kant and Nietzsche. This course will reveal the influence their ideas have had on world events, theology, and our everyday lives. NOTE: Although junior high students can take this course, it is better suited for students from 9th grade through adult.

Semester 2: Christian Ethics
Students will examine different ethical systems, as they develop a solid foundation for ethical reasoning based on the Christian worldview as described in God's Word. We will examine what the Bible teaches about specific ethical questions, abortion, same-sex marriage, cloning, etc., and refute the most prominent arguments of those who oppose Christian ethical positions. Suggested for 9th grade through adults. Prerequisite: none

CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS
some textCAUTION: The Surgeon General has determined that taking this class may cause strong convictions, boldness in witnessing, atheist & skeptic conversions to Christianity, and lead to believing in absolute truth. It may cause students to take a firm stand against relativism, Christian-bashing, and other anti-Christian bias by professors, students, friends, and family. Please use caution as Apologia Online Academy can definitely be held responsible.

Semester 1: Introduction: I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist
Statistics show that up to 75% of our youth walk away from the Christian faith after high school. This course is an inoculation against the onslaught of disinformation by atheists and skeptics of Christianity. It is a survey of the evidences for the central truths of Christianity, the existence of God, the deity and resurrection of Christ, and the authority and truth of the Bible. All of this will be examined in logical order and in a simple, non-technical, engaging style. Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself.

Semester 2: Tactics For Answering Atheists & Skeptics
The world is intolerant of Christian beliefs. You will learn how to handle the anti-Christian comebacks and conversation-enders that refute the relevance and validity of Christianity. You can gently respond in ways that move into more meaningful conversations with those who object to your faith. Additionally in this course you will be equipped to maneuver comfortably and graciously as you share your faith with others. You will learn how to navigate the mine fields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables and most importantly get people thinking about Jesus. Suggested for all grades & adults. Prerequisite: none

GOD, GOVERNMENT & CONSTITUTIONAL LITERACY
some text
Semester 1/2: GOD, GOVERNMENT & CONSTITUTIONAL LITERACY EVENING CLASS: TUESDAYS 6-7:30pm Eastern Standard Time
This may be the most important course your student (and future voter) takes this year.

From the powerful DVD series by Michael Farris comes the Apologia Online Academy class with the Apologia workbook for Constitutional Literacy taught by Mr. Shawn McGowan. Mr. McGowan will introduce your students to the fact that in the United States, loyalty is not a matter of allegiance to a ruler, a flag, or even to our homeland. Loyalty is measured by faithfulness to the Constitution of the United States.

The Constitution was formed by the Founding Fathers by the authority of the people, and it was expected that “We the People” would be vigilant to vote out of office those leaders who fail in their sworn duty to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. Yet for years, Americans have remained silent as the federal government takes more and more power for itself while encroaching on the freedoms of citizens.

Mr. McGowan will bring the U.S. Constitution to life by examining these questions such as: What does the Constitution actually say? What does it mean? What were the Founders' intentions for this document? And how is it being interpreted to shape our laws and way of life today?

Students will purchase the Companion Workbook by Apologia which is a high-quality spiral-bound workbook which contains vocabulary, supplemental studies, study questions, and writing assignments.

In this TWO-SEMESTER course, Students will begin in SEMESTER 1 to discover what the Bible has to say about the relationship between God and government, faith and politics, church and state. Mr. McGowan will help students understand the relationship between God & Government biblically, historically, and practically. Emphasis will be placed on the Christian worldview of America's Founding Fathers.

This course should be very helpful to all students, but especially to future pastors and leaders. Suggested for 9th grade through adults, but 7-8th grade students may register. Prerequisite: none

WHAT WE BELIEVE 1 & 2
some text Our children are bombarded daily with competing messages. Every song, movie, book, TV show, blog, and game is full of ideas, ideas about God, people, truth, beauty, and right and wrong. Not all of these ideas are true. Some are deceptive and even destructive. Because it is more important than ever that our youth learn to discern the truth, Apologia Online Academy is introducing What We Believe classes for 7-9th grade students. The What We Believe online classes will teach your child the essential beliefs of the Christian faith. Taught by seasoned Bible teachers your child will learn to use scripture as a lens through which to view the world around them, to see everything the way God sees it. Suggested for 7th-9th grade students. Prerequisite: none

WHAT WE BELIEVE 3 & 4
some text NEW COURSE SEMESTER 1 - WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?
Students will understand what it means to be salt and light to the world (Matthew 5:13, 14). This study will encourage you to develop a Christlike servant attitude based on these biblical truths: God created me to be a blessing to the world; God chooses to work through me; I experience God's pleasure when I do my best; I glorify God when I serve others; I can make a difference at home, in my community, and at church; the church is God's family; and the church is one body with many gifts, and I am an important member of Jesus' body. Suggested for 7th-9th grade students. Prerequisite: Who Is God and Who Am I classes 1 & 2 (unless ok'd otherwise by Mr. Barclay)

SEMESTER 2 -WHAT ON EARTH CAN I DO?
The fourth in this series is titled What On Earth Can I Do? and it teaches kids what it means to be a good steward of God's gifts at home and in the world. This study will help your children choose to put God first in every area of their lives based on these biblical truths: God made everything and owns everything. He has entrusted me with certain gifts, and He wants me to use these gifts for His glory. I can worship God by using my time wisely. I can worship God by using my talents wisely. I can worship God by using my money and possessions wisely. I can worship God by caring for my body wisely. God expects me to take care of the world He made for me.   Together, these books will help your children come to know and trust their loving God as they build an unshakable faith to last a lifetime. Suggested for 7th-9th grade students. Prerequisite: Who Is God, Who Am I, and Who Is My Neighbor classes>

WORLD RELIGIONS, CULTS, & ISLAM
Semester 1: World Religions & Cults
This is a survey of world religions, major cults, and other doctrines that challenge the historic Christian faith, including new religious movements. Students will be trained to defend the exclusive truth of Christianity as they study the basic beliefs of major cults and world religions followed by biblical critique. You will learn why "Jehovah's Witnesses" and Mormon's are cults of Christianity and false religions. Many other world religions and cults will be revealed to help prepare you to share the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Semester 2: ARE MORMONS & MUSLIMS CHRISTIAN?
Students will learn why Islam has grown to become the second largest religion in the world. This course will examine the Qur'an, Mohammad, Mecca, the history of Islam, and how Christians should respond to Muslims. Emphasis will be on how to answer Islamic criticisms of the Bible and Christianity and how to share the gospel with Muslims. There will also be special emphasis on The Church of "Jesus Christ" of Latter Day "Saints." Suggested for all grades through adults. Prerequisite: none

CREATION/EVOLUTION APOLOGETICS
some textsome textSemester 1: Refuting Evolution
Evolution dominates the cultural landscape today. From television to magazines and books to relatives deceived by apparent evidence, it seems that evolutionary philosophy dominates. Well, it might dominate for the moment, but many competent scientists believe evolution to be a theory full of holes. This course will expose the false premise behind many evolutionary theories including origins of life, walking whales, fossil evidence, and other fishy fallacies that fossilize evolutionists in their tracks. You will learn why rock dating is a fallacy, if Noah's flood was global or local, where all the races came from, if dinosaurs were on the Ark, if Genesis 1 is literal or figurative, and many more topics.

Semester 2: Refuting Evolutionists
Darwin's theory of evolution is often presented as scientifically proven fact. Few are aware that there are serious problems with the theory. Many scientific observations seriously undermine it. You will learn the major flaws of fish-to-fishermen evolution and how to open minds to good thinking habits. You don't need to get bogged down by unnecessary details. This class will help you grasp basic scientific issues and spot deceptive arguments. Suggested for all grades & adults. Prerequisite: none
