Biology at GGCA:
Biology instruction at GGCA involves an academically rigorous overview of important topics in modern biology. Students should expect to encounter up-to-date biology research in context of real-world applications, and supported by challenging core biology studies. We structure the course on a soundly Biblical foundation, and address the topics of origins and bioethics with care and balance.
"And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Gen. 2:7
