What Co-Ops Are Saying


“As a science teacher for homeschool co-ops, Apologia is all I use. This year I’m using five different courses to teach my different classes. Needless to say, I love Apologia!”

– Franchesca Fontaine Haig, Homeschool Co-op Teacher


“We have used Apologia Science since beginning our homeschool journey six years ago. After leaving the public school sector, my girls are truly enjoying learning this subject from a Creation standpoint which is very important to all of us. I believe it to be a very thorough curriculum that challenges them to think deeper than most others I’ve looked at. I will continue to use Apologia until graduation and have shared my love for its Biblical and intellectual standpoint with many friends and family members in the homeschool arena.”

– Tammye Armbrister, Homeschool Co-op Member


“My children and I have really appreciated the What We Believe series from Apologia. So far, we have finished the first in the series, Who is God?, and we are almost done with the second, Who Am I? Both are very well done, addressing pretty hard and deep topics with clarity and age-appropriate examples. It is interesting enough for my 7-year-old and in-depth enough for my 12-year-old, similar to their science series. And, honestly, I’ve learned a lot. I would highly recommend it.”

– Rebekah, Homeschool Co-op Member
