A-G High School Labs

The Chico Creek Nature Center and Thrive Homeschool Program offers A-G Science Wet Labs for high school students preparing to attend college.

Courses are broken into 4 parts. You must take all parts to complete all necessary lab work for credit. Parts 1 and 2 are in Fall and 3 and 4 are in Spring to spread the lab work across the school year.

The labs are only supplemental to the textbook requirements which you will be expected to complete outside of this course. The Chico Creek Nature Center is NOT an accredited school and can not issue school credits directly. You must have an accredited school (charter school) give you credit for taking these courses. Please contact your school to ensure that they will give your student credit for these labs.

For more information on A-G requirements go to http://www.ucop.edu/agguide/
All A-G course material and manuals are purchased through Quality Science Labs, LLC and will be provided to your student as part of the program fee.

All Materials, Supplies and Lab Manuals Included.

Our labs are taught by a highly qualified lab instructor.
