During these years BASIS Curriculum students complete a rigorous schedule of pre-Advanced Placement courses in all core disciplines, including the three sciences (Physics, Chemistry, and Biology), Economics, and a course in Logic.
It is in these Intermediate Years that our students come to understand knowledge as a tool. They begin to glimpse what mastery of the fundamental concepts skills and material in these various disciplines will afford them. They learn that amassing skills and facts is a step toward the more creative thinking required of the college-level coursework they will tackle in high school.
