Online Classes

Register 2024-2025 School Year


When students read Dr. Jay L. Wile’s science books they often think, “It sounds like he’s talking to me!” Now you can find out exactly what it’s like to have Dr. Wile talk to your child about science, because he will be teaching online courses in chemistry, and physics!

Also available are Science in the Atomic Age (general science), earth science,  biology, and anatomy and physiology taught by Lori McKeeman.

The online courses will consist of one 90-minute videoconference per week for a total of 32 weeks from September through May. The videoconferences will cover the material discussed in the textbook, show the students videos that illustrate relevant concepts, and give interpretation of current scientific discoveries that relate to what is being covered.

Your student’s tests and laboratory notebook entries are graded, so that you will have an independent evaluation of his or her performance. If you have ever wanted your student to learn science from a real expert, this is your chance!

Berean Builders is providing registration services for Dr. Wile, Mrs. McKeeman, and Mrs. Selby. Your registration in the class is with the teacher and at their discretion for how the class is conducted and the material covered, not with Berean Builders. Please contact the teacher directly for resolution of concerns with your student’s class. Contact Berean Builders if there is an issue with the processing of registration or a payment.


What makes an honors course

Science in the Atomic AgeScience in the Atomic Age will be used to teach a wide range of topics that are of interest to modern scientists. It starts by describing our current understanding of atoms, molecules, the chemicals that are necessary for life, DNA, and cells. The course then uses what the student has learned to describe the living world. It discusses the levels of organization found in creation and spends time discussing topics at each level. This course is intended for seventh grade.

“[My student] has really been enjoying this class with you and looks forward to it each week. I am so thankful for your passion and care in the teaching. Both [my student] and his younger brother said doing these courses on their own would just not be the same. ”

“It has been encouraging for me to notice [my daughter] giggling during Physics sessions with you. She tries so hard to keep up with her studies in your class. From my vantage point, it is a blessing to see her enjoying your sense of humor within the rigorous study of Honors Physics. Thank you so much for making her learning experience a joy.”

“Thank you!  She has  loved this class and is already commiserating about it being over.  I told her I September will be here before she knows it and Physics will start up!  Thanks for inspiring learning and making it fun – this was her favorite class.”

“First and foremost, I have to frankly admit that last summer I had some reluctance to register [my daughter] for an online Chemistry course for 2017-18; however, when I found out about your course, my husband and I decided that your class appeared to be the best option for [her].

Needless to say, this has been a fantastic journey for [her]; we are convinced God nudged at us to consider your class at the right time.  You have been a great blessing to [her] (and all the participating students in this class, also)!

[She] mentioned you are genuine, patient, always willing to answer questions, and you explain concepts with such clarity for the students. Indeed, my husband and I are very grateful for [her] favorable, positive experience in this class, especially since she is keenly interested in pursuing a nursing field, Lord willing.”

“My daughter is loving your Biology course this year. It’s the only day of the week she jumps out of bed excited for school. It has improved not only her science knowledge, but her work ethic, scheduling skills, and study skills. Please keep offering these!”

“My son is loving your Chemistry class as well, Dr. Wile and I am so grateful to you for offering it this year. Hoping the Lord leads you to teach these classes again in the fall because my son would love to take your Physics course.”

“I’m so sad that this class is almost over! You are one of the best teachers I’ve ever had! I’ll miss seeing you (even if it’s only over the Internet)!”

“Thank you for teaching Chemistry class this year. You are the best teacher I have ever had! I will miss you next year.”

“Thank you for class. The passion and joy with which you taught made it a fascinating experience. I’ve learned quite a lot, not only about chemistry, but about the application of science in general. As the pursuit of knowledge is one of my greatest joys, I’m very thankful that your course helped me discover more about the workings of this beautiful world.”

“Thank you so much again for making this class available–I can’t think of a better way to learn chemistry”

“I have enjoyed this class so much! I am so excited to take physics with you next school year!”

“Thank you for bringing joy to each Monday this year! I have greatly enjoyed having a professor who is accessible, enthusiastic, and attentive. ”

“I really enjoyed class this year. Your instruction has been the highlight of my entire time in high school. I read several of your other texts throughout high school and loved them, but this class with the live teaching has been incredible.”

“…my daughter, who did not want to take Chemistry, developed a strong appreciation for it because you made the concepts so understandable and the content so interesting.  So much so that she told her sister she had to take Chemistry from you because she now believes Chemistry is not a have to take class, but a must take class.   Every week she excitedly shared about some new concept she learned…Thanks for taking the subject she dreaded most and making it the subject she became the most excited about this year!”

“Your year-long Honors Physics class has been challenging, demanding, and wonderful.  I think the struggles and demands it placed on [my son] helped him grow in many good ways.  I particularly loved your invitation at the end of classes to discuss theological or other matters.  Students at this age (and especially right now) face deep, important questions about God and our culture, and to have a godly, intelligent, and wise teacher/mentor to safely ask questions has been a huge godsend.”

“I wanted to thank you for being such an amazing Physics teacher to [my son] this school year. I rest easy knowing he is in phenomenal hands and is being thoroughly challenged in preparation for college. He thinks so highly of you and enjoys your classes very much. Thank you again!”

“He loves your class. He recently took an ‘entrance exam’ for our local community college and he got the highest score possible. He also scored in the 99th percentile on his PSAT. My husband and I are convinced your classes have helped with this in many ways! We are very grateful for your time teaching our son!”
