UC A-G Approved and AP Courses
Soteric Academy offers a comprehensive list of courses which meet and exceed UC A-G requirements. Each year we continue to expand our UC A-G approved course offerings. We also offer numerous CollegeBoard approved Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses.
Science is the study of reality. Reality is where we live. At Soteric Academy we not only teach science as a subject, we teach science as a philosophy. The early scientists were philosophers, they had no instruments and decided world order by thinking about it. They postulated atoms before we could prove their existence. At Soteric Academy we encourage our students to learn through understanding and we lead them along the path. Science Matters.
Science comprises 3 core disciplines: Biology, Physics, and Chemistry. Classes we offer include Physical Science, Astronomy, Biology, Honors Biology, Human Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, Physics, Aviation, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, AP Physics C, and AP Computer Science.

Mathematics at Soteric Academy is the scout for Science. In pioneering times, the scout would travel some miles ahead of the convoy in order to determine the lay of the land. We use mathematics in the same way. Mathematics is the language of science and we teach our students how to speak science with an understanding that your system of representation determines whether a problem's solution is easy, difficult or impossible!
Our Math courses include Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trignometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC.
4 years of high school English Language courses are required for graduation. Popular classes include English Literature I & II, American Literature, British Literature and Academic Writing I&II. Literacy is a gateway skill, opening a world of possibilities to students. Our goal is to ensure that every student graduating from high school is prepared to transition successfully to postsecondary education and careers.
We are the only species that use symbols. Symbols represent other things without carrying the properties of those other things. For example the word "million" is not a million times larger than the word "one". Similarly the number 1,000,000 is not a million times longer than the number 1. Thus we can represent physical things with great efficiency. There are 3 primary symbols: language, number and money.
SOCIAL SCIENCE, COMPUTER SCIENCE, FOREIGN LANGUAGE,
ART, MUSIC, ELECTIVES
Social Science disciplines comprise World History, Human Geography, US History, American Government and Economics. It helps students to better understand the human behavior and the social dimensions of the world. These knowledge and understanding are needed for the students to function intelligently in a global society now and in the future. Foreign Language, Music, Art, Computer Science, Physical Education, and other elective courses are offered as part of the high school education.
