Ideas for Science “Pathways”*

General Path, Standard Diploma

9th: Earth Science/Pre-AP ES

10th: Biology/Pre-AP Bio

11th: Ecology or Astronomy

Interested in Medical Field, Advanced Diploma

9th: Biology/Pre-AP Bio

10th: Chemistry/Pre-AP Chem

11th: AP Bio or Dual-Enrollment Bio 101 & 102

12th: Dual-Enrollment Anatomy & Physiology


General Path, Advanced Diploma – Option A

9th: Earth Science/Pre-AP ES

10th: Biology/Pre-AP Bio

11th / 12th: Chemistry or Physics


Interested in Engineering, Advanced Diploma

9th: Biology/Pre-AP Bio

10th: Chemistry/Pre-AP Chem

11th/12th: AP Physics or AP Computer Science


General Path, Advanced Diploma – Option B

9th: Biology/Pre-AP Bio

10th: Chemistry/Pre-AP Chem

11th/12th: Physics or  AP Environmental Science (earn physical science credential)

Standard Diploma = 3 science courses in any field


Advanced Diploma = 4 science courses in 3 fields (biological, chemical, physical)

* There are many other courses available in the Science Program of Studies.  There are currently (4) Advance Placement Sciences ( all culminating in a national test): AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science & AP Physics

Additionally there are dual enrollment courses for students either looking to get a head start on college courses or who wish to “try” the rigor.  Dual enrollment courses enrolled through Virginia Western Community College currently include: College Biology 101 & 102, College Chemistry 111, College Human Anatomy & Physiology.

For more information on specific classes and their requirements you can look in your program of studies provided to students through the school, or you can use the online program of studies linked on the Guidance page.
