Quite simply, I chose Bridgeway because they had curriculum choices that the other homeschool academies don’t.

Elementary, Middle and High School Science for Homeschool Students – K12
Middle School and High School Science for Homeschool Students
(Grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
Apologia Science is a favorite among homeschoolers seeking an experiment-rich curriculum. Each course is presented in a conversational style that makes self-instruction easy. Included in each lesson are colorful illustrations that appeals to the visual learner, conversational instruction that appeals to the auditory learner and carefully designed experiments that solidify the instruction for the hands-on learner.
When combined with Bridgeway’s Science Lab kits, available for Apologia’s Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, each high school Apologia course provides both a science and a lab credit.
Elementary Homeschool Science
(Grades K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Apologia’s elementary science courses allow students to get a complete look at a specific topic. The courses in the Young Explorer series—Astronomy, Botany and Zoology 1, 2, & 3, have the homeschool-friendly text and hands-on style that characterizes Apologia’s other courses.
Parents work actively with students to read through the instruction in the text and to work through the discussion questions. Students keep a science notebook all year where they record answers to discussion questions, complete various projects, diagram what they are learning, and maintain collections relative to what they are studying.
Hands on projects are also included in each chapter, providing opportunities for homeschool students to expand on and solidify what they are learning.
Apologia’s elementary sciences are also a terrific option for parents seeking to teach the same science course to students in various grade levels (from grades K-6).
Most titles in both the elementary, middle and high school sciences include on-line enrichments accessible through the Bridgeway Academy’s homeschooling website for members.
