Developed by leading scholars, Apologia’s textbooks serve as the teacher and are written in a conversational way that engages students and promotes hands-on activities. In addition to our quality textbooks, we offer online and on-demand classes, self-paced learning, and audio and video components to accommodate every student’s unique learning style.
By equipping homeschool families with the tools they need, parents and students can achieve their academic goals and develop an understanding and love for God that informs how they navigate the world for the rest of their lives.
Apologia’s textbooks are not only written by experts in the field, but they are also technically edited by professionals. Apologia is comprised of a team of specialists committed to creating Bible-based resources that enable your elementary through high school-aged students to succeed in their studies. Our team of directors, authors, and editors have MD, Ph.D., and Master’s degrees. We are doctors, nurses, engineers, professors, and researchers in our fields of study. We are also Christian homeschooling parents who believe that our universe unfolds in God and that the gift of knowledge allows us to praise our Creator through the contemplation of creation.
Because we live in an age where discoveries are a daily occurrence, you want a homeschool curriculum that is not only factually correct but also current. Apologia doesn’t just offer your family a static curriculum. Each of our texts has a unique Book Extras website with Internet links that connect your student with the most up-to-date information in the scientific community. We seek out sites where experts explain the newest concepts. These extra links help your student see the connection between the facts in their textbook and the discoveries in their world.
Apologia textbooks and notebooks are written to your student in a conversational tone so there are no cumbersome teacher guides. Students can easily navigate through the curriculum on their own. Our homeschool curriculum helps students methodically learn, self-check, and master difficult concepts before moving on.
Sometimes students learn best when they can see AND hear what they are studying. Apologia audiobooks let the student follow along with the audio while reading.
When learning complex subject matter, it is easier to comprehend when the topic is animated and presented to the student. Apologia’s video instruction component brings an engaging teacher into your home to teach the subject matter in a visual format.
When it comes to learning, you can’t beat a hands-on experience that lets a student own knowledge from direct involvement with materials. All of Apologia’s science and math courses include hands-on learning through activities and experiments. Most use common household items, while upper-level sciences will require lab equipment.
Some students learn best when they are able to interact with others and ask questions of a live instructor. Apologia’s Live Online Classes gives your student access to interact live with one of our many professional instructors in a structured virtual classroom from the comfort of home.
Apologia is a favorite curriculum in the co-op setting. Check your local co-ops to see if one of our courses is being offered to allow your student to learn in an interactive environment.
Self-paced courses in your homeschool help build independence, allows your student to pace themselves and review content that may be more difficult for them, and frees up your teaching to focus on other students or courses in your homeschool. Apologia’s Self-Paced courses include a digital version of the course textbook, audio narration, video instruction, and assessment and exams that are automatically graded.
A solid homeschool curriculum should include a hands-on component that is easily performed in a homeschool setting. Textbooks are necessary to help students acquire facts, yet it is essential for students to actively participate in the process of discovery to gain a personal awareness of their world. Hands-on experiments and activities help students link collections of facts to their natural world. We strive to create experiments that use common household items so that students can actively participate in their learning.
Also, if your student has plans to attend college after high school, it is important to note that most colleges require at least two science courses with labs in the high school years, which is included in Apologia’s curriculum.
Apologia’s science textbooks have two main types of experiments:
All experiments teach students how to collect and analyze data, both scientific and mathematical, to formulate a hypothesis based on inductive and deductive problem-solving skills, and to understand the limitations of data and conclusions.Shop Now
Apologia’s curriculum is written to help students develop a lifelong love of learning and experience the wonder and awe of Creation and the Creator. God’s fingerprints can be seen in every aspect of creation and learning, and creation and human knowledge are intimately connected to the Creator.
Secular textbooks stop short of the whole truth because they only present scientific facts. Intellectual illumination occurs when a student is capable of understanding not only how all of creation works and interacts, but also his or her specific place in all of creation.
A child taught from a creation-based philosophy has a solid foundation and knows that no part of learning is done in isolation. Nothing is independent, but rather all things are interrelated in our universe. That includes atoms, bacteria, plants, animals, people, and galaxies that will take lifetimes to fully explore and understand.
Creation-based education in our homeschools gives our children a fuller awareness of themselves, their world, their universe, and ultimately a personal understanding of their unique existence in the universe. The handiwork of God, everything visible and invisible, next to us or in the farthest reaches of the universe, is connected throughout all of creation, throughout all of time.Shop Now
Your homeschool curriculum choices reflect your larger end-goal perspective. Typically, the end goal in choosing a curriculum for your family is not to create a transcript, but rather to shape your children’s minds, hearts, and souls. We want them to become intelligent, wise, moral, mature, and compassionate adults. So, while you’re planning out your school year, be sure that your curriculum choices align with your big-picture objective.
Apologia’s Bible-based homeschool curriculum is written in a manner that elevates the student and the family in God’s world. We use teachable moments to call students to stop and “Think About This” as it relates the facts in the textbook to a bigger picture in life.
Additionally, Apologia was designed with the homeschool family in mind. Suggested schedules are flexible so that families can adjust them to fit their individual needs. We work with parents to help them achieve the goals they have set for their families.Shop Now
Reviews and awards are an important part of evaluating a homeschool curriculum. The homeschool community knows what works and what doesn’t. Do some research to find what your fellow homeschool community is saying about the curriculums you are considering. Apologia has been voted #1 in the homeschool community for over 12 years.
“Thank you for giving homeschooling families books that bring our children closer to their Creator, widen their knowledge, expand imaginations, and build character.”
As Christian parents, it is our purpose to teach our children to both understand and interact with the universe so that they can truly respect and love God’s handiwork. We have the joy, the honor, and the blessing to create learning environments that help our children become rooted and firmly established in recognizing God’s signature throughout all of creation so that our children know the length, width, height, and depth of God’s love. It is a true blessing to be able to define and teach the scientific mysteries of the universe to our children from a foundational biblical worldview. There isn’t a firmer foundation on which to base our children’s knowledge.Shop Now
