Living God's Word Through Education

The What We Believe Bible series does more than teach your children about the Bible. More importantly, it teaches them how to live God’s Word by confidently walking out their Christian beliefs in a hostile culture. With this beautifully illustrated Bible curriculum, your children will learn to apply Scripture and use it as a lens through which to view the world—and choose to walk in the truth.

Literature with a Biblical Worldview

Apologia's Language Arts curriculum involves stimulating exercises that help build grammar and writing skills for younger students and introduce your older students to the world of literature, all from a biblical worldview. Teachers and parents love the conversational style that allows them the ability to give their students the freedom to work independently through the course. Students love the colorful illustrations and the conversational style that make learning fun and engaging.
