Honors Science


What is honors?  When do you put honors on a title?  Is Apologia Science an honors curriculum?
Is Apologia Science courses, plus labs considered honors on a high school transcript. (Biology, Chemistry, etc.) - Sally

Dear Sally,

If the authors/publishers of your curriculum, Apologia Science, say it is a honors course, then you can call it honors.
If your child passes a honors level test after taking taking the course, then you might call it honors. (AP or CLEP exam from Collegeboard.com)

If your child does more than the expected work, beyond high school level, then you might call it honors. (Adding a college textbook or college level supplement.)

There is no country-wide definition of "honors."  It just generally means "more than usual or expected."

I hope that helps,


Whether it is questions about honors, CLEP, or the ACT, I am here to help.  My Parent Training A la Carte courses can help you become fully prepared for your next step in homeschooling.

How about calling it "honors" if the course is better than what I had in high school? But then again, with my alma mater, that's really not saying much :-(
