Intensives will be held safely, masked and socially distanced! Join Us!
2-Day Lab Intensives: Students will complete a full year of labs for Biology or Chemistry in two intense days. All lab supplies, lab manual, and two days of in-person instruction are included in the fee for the lab intensive. These lab intensives are high school-level labs, and are open to any student able to complete high school level work.

What is provided to students: Each student will receive a lab manual, apron, safety glasses, and all the supplies and specimens needed for the labs.

  • In addition, students will be given access to our online classroom for additional lab and class resources. They will remain a part of this virtual classroom for up to 6 months after the intensive, and are able to submit a formal lab for review at any time during that period. 

 
At the end of the intensive, students will have a full lab manual to show for their hard work and will have earned a full year of lab credit. Credit can also be issued from Williamsburg Classical Academy upon request.
