Testimonials From Apologia Online Academy Students


Apologia Online Academy:

"I am so pleased with the balance that your classes have...they are demanding enough to challenge, but not so overwhelming that the kids have a hard time keeping up. Your expectations are always fair and you really try to work with the families that you serve." -Michelle, Minnesota

"Thanks for all you do to make quality biblical teaching available. Sam is beginning a degree at a secular university this fall and his preparation through Apologia leaves him confident that he will be able to defend his faith in the secular classroom." -Nicole, Canada

"Your teaching and your willingness to take the time to explain things to me has encouraged me, strengthened me, and even helped me grow more determined to dig in and learn the material...Knowing that I could count on my teacher to be there for me, guide me, and help me has been something that I have clung to and have found encouragement in." -Adriana

“I have a stronger knowledge of Christian apologetics, and more of a need to become closer to God. You have answered my most confusing questions that held me at a distance from God.” -Hanna

"What I liked best about the classes was how each classmate was from different parts of the country and also different parts of the world!"

"The thing I liked best about the online class was the way we were able to communicate with other kids to get their opinion on the module we were learning."

"You are setting our youth on fire and we need that backup as parent's in today's culture." -Courtney

"The thing I will miss most about this course is the ability to interact with everybody. Previously I had been home schooled all of my life and hadn't had very much interaction with real live class. This year (my first year of high school) I wanted to go to a real (public or christian) school, but circumstances arose which prevented me from going and I was not very excited about the new year school knowing that it would be the same kind of school I had done before. One day a few months before school began my mother approached me and told me that she had found a program where I could do school at home and still interact with other students. I was thrilled that I had finally found something that was right up my alley. This school year has been a wonderful adventure and experience and I look forward to coming back next year." -Robert

 


Christian Apologetics Class with Mr. Blythe:

"Before I took this apologetics class, I believed in God because my parents believed and took me to church. I was sheltered. All my friends were Christians as well, but there came a time where I needed find evidence for my faith. So, I was given a choice if I wanted to take an apologetics online class, and I jumped at the idea. First day of the class there was a cheerful man that was obsessed with everything Disney. I was skeptical at first, but as he spoke my eyes slowly opened until I was staring, wide eyed, at the truth and evidence. I believe in my faith now because I know I’m a sinner in need of saving, and I now know without a shadow of a doubt that it is Jesus the son of God." - Alex, Missouri

"...thanks for such an inspiring and uplifting class! I look forward to next time!" - Taliyah, Oregon

"I would say my favorite part of the class was probably just the general answer of being better equipped to defend the gospel, and to be ready to give answers to those who question the Christian faith. I feel like I received a lot of great information, and have learned so much over the past year. I liked the simple, straightforward evidences for God especially such as the Cosmological argument, the Teleological Argument, and the Moral Argument, and hope that I can be better equipped to share the gospel with others!" - Andrew, Iowa

"My favorite part of the class was the differentiation made between the Morman and Christian faiths. I have some Morman neighbors that, seemingly every year, try to convert us to that faith. This year they finally stopped because my family and I used some of the techniques taught in this class on them. This has been a great year of Bible and Apologetics and you have been a great teacher throughout. Thank you." -Zach, Texas

"Hey Mr. B! First off, thank you for teaching us and guiding us through these awesome debates we are watching! This is the best apologetics course I have ever taken and I love it so much!... Thank you so much! :D" -Alissa, Colorado


Biology & Advanced Biology with Mrs. Edmondson:

"Mrs. Edmondson, I must tell you a great tale concerning Hunter...and her delight in what she is learning in your class. Yesterday the doctor ordered some lab work to be done in regards to her migraines, they filled up about 5 tubes of blood for the tests. As we were leaving she turns to me and says. "Well, I am leaving with less connective tissue than I went in with. Now my body must do mitosis." Of course, I had to have her explain what in the world she was talking about, but it was quite the fun lesson! Today she comes home and says she has figured out that if they took 1/8 of a cup of blood it will take about 3.5 days for her body to replace it. Then I had the delight in hearing how some cells can do mitosis and others cannot. She is really enjoying what she is learning. Thank you for giving her this delight in science!" -Keleigh

"I want to thank you for teaching this class this year. It has been amazing! There were many times I got to sit in, and I was impressed with how you were able to teach such a "hands on" type of class online. I had A&P in college myself, and I was able to recapture a lot that I had "forgotten" over the years. Let me especially commend you on how you handled the subject matter in Module 16. Your perspective was very biblical, and I am sure that the "awe" you communicated to the students will go a long way in how they appreciate sexuality as an amazing design by our Creator! Have a wonderful summer! I am advising all my friends to try Apologia online courses because of our experience! :)" - Debbie, parent of an Apologia Online Academy student

"I want to stop and thank you for all of the wisdom and kind encouragement you provided Sam this semester. You have been used by God to under-gird his quest for understanding science. We would not have had a successful semester without you. Most importantly, thank you for taking the time out of your day to research and answer his very many questions. He always felt "satisfied" with his understanding after speaking to you. You have encouraged him and appreciated his queries and I am grateful." - Kelly, parent of an Apologia Online Academy student

"Before I started the class, I thought that I was going to hate it, and I was going to do very bad in it. But this is my favorite science class that I have ever taken! I LOVE the class meetings! I LOVE your tests! And I LOVE the way you teach us the material! I feel very blessed to have a great science teacher like you!" - Isabelle

"Thank you for the tremendous job you are doing with this class! We have been very pleased with the presentation detail and the timeliness with which you return graded projects. As a homeschooling mother, I know how demanding life can be and wanted to let you know your hard work is appreciated!" - Angie, parent of an Apologia Online Academy student

"I miss our class already. Your enthusiasm caused my interest in the natural sciences to grow exponentially. Before your class I had never considered any science major, but thanks to you I am now considering studying biology with a concentration in neuroscience." - Taylor

"I asked her [Lexi] the other day who her favorite teacher was this year (she has several other online teachers through Memoria Press) and she said 'Mrs. Edmondson for sure!' I asked her why and the #1 reason was because she knew you were praying for her and that you were always kind and easy to ask questions of. She also said that you made learning biology fun and she just flat out loved the course. I stuck my head in all the time during the chats and I witnessed the integrity of your course, the stellar preparation, and the excellent level of instruction all around." Krista, parent of an Apologia Online Academy student

"You have challenged Peyton this year, but have helped him in his decision to go into nursing at PCC this fall. I have also enjoyed getting to know you this year. Thank you for being such a great teacher!" - parent of an Apologia Online Academy student


Biology with Mrs. Fowler

"Thank you so much for teaching me! I had such a fun time this year and you are by far my favorite Apologia teacher. I will no longer be taking any more apologia classes so thank you for making homeschooling a blast." -Isabel, Colorado

"Thank-you so much for the great work you did and the influence you were for Phares these past few years. He will always have fond memories and has learned so much!" -Lavina, parent of an Apologia Online Academy student, Pennsylvania

"Mrs. Fowler, I want to thank you so much for your excellent administration of this course for my son. I am so grateful for your godly influence on him and REALLY appreciate you teaching him a subject that I would not have been able to do very well. You have impacted Gabe more than we will ever know in a physical sense." -Cheri, parent of an Apologia Online Academy student, Alabama

"What I will miss most about this class is the way we prayed in the videos at the beginning of class. Some may not think much of it, but it puts me in the right mind set. It reminds me that God is the reason for everything and it gives me a purpose to learn. I am going to miss this class, and I am very thankful for a teacher who constantly reminded us of how amazing God's creation is. :)" -Liz

"Well most importantly, I will miss your humor. I loved all of those little jokes you put up. that was one of the reasons I couldn't wait to come to class. Another thing I will miss is all of the experiments and stories we were all able to share with each other. I will miss having an amazing teaching like you. by far you are one of my favorite teachers, other then my mom, because of the way you teach and how your always so open when I need help. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to have by my opinion one of the best teachers in the world." -Seth

"On behalf of the whole family and especially Matthew. We thank you so much for making Biology fun, interactive, and captivating. Matthew enjoyed your class. He looked forward to attending each week. I watched often alongside of Matthew and it was worth every penny. Thank also for being understanding to our challenges this past year." -parent of an Apologia Online Academy student

 


General Science with Dr. Hanks:

"I learned so much about Science and God's creation. It will definitely help me in the years to come! Also, thank you for being such a great teacher! You made it so easy to memorize and learn new things! I will probably pursue Science throughout High School and maybe even college!"

"What I liked best was the amazing teaching skills that Dr. Hanks used to teach us and how helpful she was in our science! I also loved that, in the book, it was stressed on every subject how wonderful and creative God was, and how something so complex and beautiful and amazing could be created from nothing."

"I absolutely loved my teacher :) and that the book refers to God our loving creator! The book was so interesting I couldn't wait to learn more! I never have loved one of my curriculums so much! I loved learning about alveoli and atoms the most! Thanks SO MUCH Dr. Hanks! I'll miss you! :)"

"You really fanned the flame of her love for science."

"I loved learning about how our body works and about how plants work. You were a great teacher and I learned so much from you! Thank you so much Dr. Hanks!"

"The thing I liked best about the online classes was, the getting to know you questions, the lesson, and the Bible quote and prayer!"

"What I liked best about this class was learning interesting and new facts about the human body. It just shows that there is no way we were an accident."

 


Advanced Chemistry in Creation with Mr. Martin:

"My daughter...has taken several High school science classes during her homeschooling years. We have always been pleased with the quality of the instructors. Apology has been a great fit for our family! We appreciate all that Apologia does for the HS community. I would like to praise Mr. Dan Martin for an excellent job! He has had an amazing impact on my daughter's enjoyment of chemistry. His teaching ability and "real life" application of the material has been enriching. He is truly an asset to your organization. His class has been a blessing to my daughter! It is too often that we point out discrepancies and not give praise where it is due. I hope Mr. Martin is recognized for his abilities. Thank you." -Tonya


Biology with Mrs. Price:

"Just wanted to say thank you. I was talking to a physician's assistant yesterday, telling her about my 5th grader's and 11th grader's science next year and that we would be doing dissection. She was totally amazed. She has been teaching a physiology and anatomy class at the community college. She said that she is having to teach them how to dissect. I thought everyone learned that in high school. Guess not. Thank you for the opportunity to learn and to learn at a level they are capable of."

 


What We Believe Class with Mr. Webb:

"Thank you for an awesome year of Apologia! We really enjoyed it."                          -Grace & Isaac, Canada
