Abeka Academy, a biblical-based curriculum, offers all the advantages of a homeschool atmosphere without the parent-teacher having to handle everything. If the parent-teacher doesn’t feel comfortable teaching on their own, or if they are too busy to do it all, or if they feel stretched thin with homeschooling PLUS everything else (day to day family life), Abeka Academy offers video classes for “full grades” meaning K4 (Pre-K) through grade 12. How does this benefit the homeschooling family?
When you’re not the only teacher, you get
- more one-on-one time for your children and
- Freedom to homeschool even if you don’t have the time to develop every lesson yourself.
