Compass Has High School Lab Science Classes!
Most colleges expect applicants to have at least 2-3 years of high school science with laboratory work (3-4 years if your teen is considering a STEM major or a highly competitive college.) Colleges also want to see science work that is more rigorous than vinaegar-and-baking-soda in the kitchen or an experiment observed via video. Colleges want to see 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 2021-22 year.
