Course Catalog

All Biola Youth Academics courses are biblically centered. Secondary level courses are taught at a college preparatory level.

The course levels listed in parentheses (excluding Torrey Academy Classes) are guidelines. We realize that homeschoolers often cross grade-level "boundaries" for many subjects; therefore students are welcome to enroll in any class that suits their level of achievement. Please remember that our core courses are college preparation level.
