Apologia is another vendor that we are proud to have returning for Year 2 with the Crew.  If you’ve been homeschooling for long and have not heard of Apologia, you must be living under a rock!  In my personal opinion, they are the leader in homeschool science curriculum.

Last year’s Crew members had the opportunity to review several Apologia science products.  You can read those reviews here.  If you’d like to learn more about their science curriculum choices, you can see the elementary curriculum choices here and the junior high and high school level choices here.

This past year, Apologia Educational Ministries has undergone some changes and has added some new features to their ministry.  One new addition is the Apologia Academy, which offers online classes for your students in the areas of Bible, Apologetics, and Worldview.  Apologia Press offers curriculum and parent resources.

The entire Crew will be receiving The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling by Debra Bell from Apologia Press.  Here’s some information about the book (taken directly from the website):

  1. I think that I checked an older edition out of the library once when I started homeschooling. It still has usefulness, even if you've been homeschooling for a while. I used one of the suggestions today!

  2. I am so thankful I was given the opportunity to read this book! It was an incredible blessing of encouragement to me at a time when I really needed it!
