Apologia is a family-owned corporation with the mission to help homeschooling families learn, live, and defend the Christian faith. This is accomplished in large part by attending 40-45 homeschool conferences each year in order to give homeschoolers an opportunity to see, touch, and review our products and resources. Apologia staff and speakers are frequently available to present workshops at conferences where they explain how to use our products and curriculum for science, Bible, worldview, homeschooling and other subjects. Apologia is unique among homeschool companies in that we have a team of conference speakers who give keynote and featured presentations.
Apologia Academy offers online courses using the latest technology available. We currently offer courses in the sciences, Bible, worldview, and apologetics. Our teachers are educated, trained, and experience in the subject matter they teach.
Apologia publishes books and curriculum that are written by a wide variety of authors. We offer creation-based science curriculum for K-12, worldview curriculum for ages six to fourteen, practical and inspirational books about homeschooling, and other topics of interest to homeschool families.
HomeWorks By Precept is the division of Precept Marketing dedicated to providing the homeschool community with the best textbooks and resources available for Christian home education. Our primary product line is BJU Press.
We want your child’s homeschool experience to be a success—not just in the short term, but for life. That’s why we provide top-quality curriculum that teaches not just what to think, but how to think. We’ve selected curriculum that emphasizes strong critical thinking skills within the framework of a biblical worldview. Students learn more than disconnected facts; they learn to master topics and connect them to real life.
Helping students to write well is one of the most daunting tasks facing teachers and homeschool parents.
Award-winning WriteShop offers quality, parent-approved writing resources for kindergarten through high school, helping new and veteran homeschoolers alike teach writing with confidence.

Reading Horizons respects the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. We believe, in a very real sense, that the effective or ineffective functioning of people is this world’s greatest source of progress and happiness or its greatest source of regression and frustration. We are concerned about the growing population of youth and adults who cannot participate in the mainstream of society because they have not learned to read.
As our company name suggests, our goal is to provide a dynamic, successful way for people to reach beyond their limitations and discover new horizons by learning to read. Accordingly, Reading Horizons is dedicated specifically to helping people learn to read so that they can be better prepared to accomplish real‐life tasks that face them every day and so they can create opportunities to expand their horizons in the future.

At Teaching Textbooks, we realize that one of the things that makes homeschooling so superior from an academic standpoint is that students are free to work with a customized curriculum at their own pace. This allows for truly individualized instruction.
However, most textbooks are designed for classroom use not individual study, which is why much of the needed instruction is left out. The assumption is that the teacher will fill in the details.
The idea behind Teaching Textbooks was to create products that include everything that’s in a normal textbook plus all of the instruction the student typically receives in class.
In fact, the Teaching Textbook program offers more instruction than most students get in a classroom setting, enabling homeschoolers to retain their freedom to work independently without giving up the instruction they need to succeed.
We believe all students can understand the Bible and respond to the Gospel. Young students learn the major characters and events through hearing the Bible read, stick figuring the passage, and answering questions about lessons. The method for young children is Hear-Draw-Review.
Once students reach first grade we introduce them to the timeline of the Bible. The first lesson in each study is the timeline, with subsequent lessons related to a character or event found on the timeline.
The method for older students is Read-Draw-Review. With each progressive age, we attempt to introduce students to more Scripture, basic Bible geography, and how to use Bible study skills such as a Bible dictionary.
Our desire is to see all students learn the process of Bible study in order to become confident and skilled in studying God’s Word on their own. If you want a Bible study that simplify your planning, engage your children, and help them grow in their faith, Grapevine is for you!

Over the years people approached me with questions regarding homeschooling, working with special needs children, herbal remedies, and natural parenting (including pregnancy/ birth). My hope is to provide a place where folks can come for information and inspiration.
To complement my herbal studies, I’ve completed additional courses covering holistic wellness, aromatherapy and aromatic medicine, all from an evidence-based perspective. I’m currently working towards becoming a Master Herbalist and a Natural Health Educator. For the past three years, our family has used Young Living Essential Oils, and I love to share how they’ve helped our family to stay well and to thrive in our homeschool journey.

Here is what one member had to say: “Best part of my week? I received a great list of things to work on from my coach! If you haven’t had coaching with Katie yet, you are in for a treat! I felt like I got more inspiration and advice in half an hour from her than I’ve gotten from everyone else around me in the past several months. She simplified everything, pointed out things I hadn’t seen, and offered a tangible list of goals. If you haven’t signed up yet…make sure you do!”
