(2024-2025 Coming soon)
Math, Science, Fine Arts, and P.E.
For many years we have not offered math and science courses through Heritage. We've partnered with a local group of math and science teachers to offer courses as an option for our students. Athens Area Math and Science has come under our wing as a branch of Heritage Classical Study Center. Many of you in the Athens area are probably well aware of this program, as it has been operating in the area for several years. It is not necessary to take the core humanities courses at Heritage in order to take math and science classes with Athens Area Math and Science, but Heritage students who take courses with this program will not be required to jump through the Offsite Credit Transfer (OCT) hoops that they have had to jump through in the past. This means, among other things, no staying after classes on Tuesdays for OCT testing. Of course, students who do not enroll with Athens Area Math and Science may still get those courses on their high school transcripts by following Heritage OCT and Georgia Accrediting policies about transferring in such courses. See end of page for contact information.
We also have a partnership with a teacher in the Decatur/Atlanta area. Mrs. Noelle Bandy's math classes are available for both Heritage students and her own students coming from other places. Please contact Mrs. Bandy to get details about the classes which will be offered next year. (email@example.com)
AP Calculus (on Tuesdays from 10:45-12:15) in person at Eastside Academics or remotely on Zoom
Mrs. Bandy (MS Mathematics) teaches with Derek Owens's courses.
Athens Area Math and Science
Athens Area Math and Science was created several years ago in order to assist homeschooling families provide quality math and science instruction to their children. Our teachers strive to teach math and science in a way that provides a strong foundation for college-bound students, and that honors and glorifies God. Each of our teachers has a degree in their field and each has several years of teaching experience. Math classes typically meet twice per week, usually Monday and Thursday. Science classes are one day per week unless otherwise specified by the teacher. Science classes perform labs in class and use the Apologia curriculum. Math classes use Prentice Hall textbooks.
