About the Live Online Psychology Class: A Christian Perspective

In his live online psychology class, Dr. Rice introduces students to psychology from a distinctly Christian perspective. Students learn how Evolution replaced Freud, Behaviorism, and Humanism as Psychology’s dominant worldview and why the Christian worldview is the most logical, internally consistent, and meaningful paradigm for understanding the big questions about the Mind.

After all, it is God’s grandest creation.

Graduation is just around the corner. There’s an important elective they need before college.

Spring 2018 Classes are Underway • Pre-registration for Fall is open now.

Year after year and semester after semester, students rate Psychology: A Christian Perspective as their favorite High School class.


Two Live Online Psychology Class Options:

Option #1 (Lecture only option): students attend 15 online lectures (about 1.5 hours each) and participate in the live class discussion (chat). Parents/teachers assess student performance and assign grades. The cost for Option #1 is $159.

Option #2 (Lectures, quizzes, discussion, essays, and a grade): I assign 4 short essays, discussion posts, quizzes, and a final exam and assign a grade. The cost for Option #2 is $259.

  1. Which book goes with the lectures?

They both do. Students can use either textbook — Homeschool Psych OR Psychology A Christian Perspective.  Christian Book Distributors, ROCK Solid, Rainbow Resource and other retailers carry the books or you can order a copy from at my website (homeschoolpyschology.com).

If you’d like turn-key, easy to use assignments that require little teacher involvement, I recommend you get Homeschool Psych and the accompanying student workbook https://homeschoolpsychology.com/product/set-of-two-homeschool-psych-and-student-workbook/

If you’d like to be more involved and craft the assignments, you should get Psychology: A Christian Perspective and the Teachers’ Guide. https://homeschoolpsychology.com/product/set-textbook-and-teachers-guide/
