Simplify Homeschool with Apologia’s Self-Paced Courses

Get Started Today with an Online, Self-Paced Homeschool Course

Apologia is excited to come alongside your family with an online educational tool that integrates seamlessly into your homeschool plan. With our self-paced courses, your middle and high school students can complete their Apologia science courses in a flexible learning environment that allows them to work at their own unique pace.

Self-paced, online homeschool courses help build students’ independence, freeing up your teaching time so you can focus on other students or courses in your homeschool.

Note: We are not a full-service school, so we do not issue transcripts; you are still in control of your homeschool and will issue the transcript for your student.
