Apologia exists because a small group of parents wanted their children to have an academically strong education that would deepen their Christian faith. Some things haven't changed. What began to meet the needs of a group of Indiana families has grown to be a company that services the entire country and beyond. What began with a single textbook has grown to include a K-12 Creation-based science curriculum, worldview curriculum for ages six to fourteen, practical and inspirational books about homeschooling, refreshing retreats for moms, and online classes from Apologia Academy. Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc., is a family-owned corporation whose mission is to help families learn, live, and defend the historic Christian faith.
