These Apologia Courses could be considered honors courses if a student has demonstrated good knowledge of the prerequisite subject matter and desires to go deeper into a particular advanced subject matter.
Our grade level courses could be considered honors if students perform and document ALL experiments and textbook work. Typically, an honors course adds new materials to the existing course. We recommend using the corresponding student notebooks for honors courses because our notebooks add additional content to the textbook curriculum.
