AP Biology added to challenging DCHS curriculum
Delmarva Christian High School has added Advanced Placement Biology to its already challenging academic curriculum. The AP Biology course will offer students the opportunity to receive college credits while still in high school. Instructing this year’s course will be Darryl Hudson, an experienced teacher who is celebrating his 41st year in the field.
AP Biology is more in depth and more intense than a traditional high school biology course. Accelerated coursework means the students will cover more information in a shorter period of time. “Statistical analysis is a big part [of AP Biology] and differs from a standard biology class,” said Hudson. “There is more inquiry. They will collect information and ask what it all means. They are conducting themselves as a scientist would.”
The more demanding workload of an AP course has an added benefit. After the successful completion of AP Biology, the student may sit for a final exam. If a passing grade is awarded, college credits will be earned. AP courses are a way for students to use their daily experience at Delmarva Christian High School as preparation for the next step in their future. The new AP Biology course, along with the current lineup of AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP World History, provide DCHS additional academic depth to equip its students for exciting careers and lives of service.
Delmarva Christian High School is a nondenominational Christian high school serving students in Sussex, Kent, Wicomico, Dorchester, Talbot, and Worcester counties. For more information or to schedule a tour, call 302-856-4040 or go to www.delmarvachristian.com.
