Compass has High School Lab Science Classes!
Most colleges expect applicants to have 2-3 years of high school science with laboratory work (3-4 years if your teen is considering a STEM major or a highly selective college.) Colleges want to see science work that is more rigorous than viewing videos and vinaegar + baking soda in the kitchen; they want to know that your teen has had full science courses with hands-on, in-person lab experience. Compass has several lab science classes for homeschoolers for the 2022-23 year. Click on the class name below for times, detailed descriptions, and to register.
