CONDENSED LABS

Lab Rat Academy condenses the full year of labs into 4 week courses that are 4 or 5 hours in duration.  We can accommodate to your specific needs if you'd like to have a shorter lab that spans the course of 2 months to finish it off in only one week.  Call us to arrange an A-G Science Wet Lab that meets your needs.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • These labs only complete the supplemental "wet-lab" requirement for these courses, not the textbook requirements.

  • Lab Rat Academy is NOT an accredited school.  You must have an accredited school (charter school) give you credit for taking these courses.  Please contact your school to ensure that they will give your student credit for these labs.

  • For more information on A-G requirements go to http://www.ucop.edu/agguide/
  • All A-G course material and manuals are purchased through Quality Science Labs.
  • Extra charges of apply for single student labs. 
  • 57.5 cents/round trip mile apply for offsite labs.
  • Please contact us for more accurate pricing.     

A-G High School Labs

Lab Rat Academy offers A-G Science Wet Labs for high school students preparing to attend college in California.  The goal of the "A-G" subject requirement is to make sure that your student can participate fully in their first year of college.  Our A-G Science Labs help you meet the wet lab requirements.  As a college freshmen your student will need to have a minimum of one year preparation in each of at least two of the areas of Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Earth Science.
