Who is Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc.? We are the #1 publisher of creation-based science and Bible curriculum with more than fifty top awards from homeschool parents and media. The resources we publish and services we provide are designed to help homeschooling families learn, live, and defend the Christian faith. That’s who we are.

Why do we do this work? The answer is threefold. One, we believe in homeschooling. Two, we believe that every follower of Jesus must be prepared to defend the Christian faith. And three, we believe that every academic subject can and should be taught from a biblical worldview. That is why we do what we do.

So just what does Apologia do?

Well, we publish creation-based science curriculum for grades K–12, Bible worldview curriculum for six to fourteen year olds, Apologetics for high school students, language arts curriculum, Constitutional Literacy for high school students, and practical resources for homeschooling families including the Ultimate Planners for moms, teens, and students. We also publish books that provide encouragement, advice, and vision to succeed on the homeschooling journey.

Apologia Online Academy offers interactive courses in science, Bible, worldview, and apologetics in a live virtual classroom. All our instructors are outstanding in their fields. You can check out our classes here.

We organize Real Refreshment Retreats and Evenings of Real Refreshment for homeschooling moms. These live events affirm, encourage, challenge, and inspire moms and provide a place to celebrate the journey with others in the homeschooling community.

Apologia also hosts the annual Homeschool Teacher Appreciate Day, featuring games, contests, giveaways, free downloads, radio interviews, podcasts, webinars, and panel discussions. We plan to keep this spring tradition going for years to come! After all, a homeschooling mom makes many sacrifices for her family and needs to know that she is appreciated. Get details and join in on the fun here.

We invite you to visit Apologia World, our online social network. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube. At the Apologia Blog you can read valuable articles and stay connected with everything Apologia. Sign up to receive our Apologia World e-newsletter here.

That’s a nice list of what we do. So how do we do it? We produce content that is written to the student in an engaging conversational style. Our textbooks are academically sound, rigorous, and college-prep. Each one is also Christ-centered and creation-based and adheres to a biblical worldview. Our books are beautifully designed inside and out and manufactured using the highest-quality materials.

To close, let me reiterate why we do what we do. At Apologia we believe in homeschooling, we believe in defending the Christian faith, and we believe that every subject can and should be taught from a biblical worldview.

Now you know who we are, what we do, how we do it, and most importantly, why we do what we do.

What Does “Apologia” Mean?

You might be wondering where our company name originated. The Greek word apologia appears eight times in the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, and it is always used in the context of people defending their faith or actions by reason and logic. In 1 Peter 3:15, for example:

But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.

Apologia Educational Ministries exists to help homeschooling families equip their students to give a reasoned defense of the Christian faith. To do this Apologia develops curriculum to help families cultivate a biblically sound approach to all thought and experience. In addition, Apologia publishes resources for parents to help them create an environment of learning that is best suited for each individual child.

In all these things Apologia is equipping families to defend the historic Christian faith so that they may speak the truth in love anytime, anywhere, and with anyone.
