A Shameless Plug for Apologia Science

For science, I strongly prefer Apologia sciences.  Three reasons:

  • Because my younger son passed a CLEP after Apologia Biology,

  • Both of my sons got a 4.0 in engineering physics after Apologia Physics

  • Both were granted an exemption from taking college chemistry after Apologia chemistry in high school.


For these reasons, I know for certain that Apologia was a college prep science curriculum.  I know it's not a perfect fit for every family, because it's written from a Christian perspective.  However, I recommend Apologia even with my non-Christian clients because I believe it is such great college preparation for science.

But science is like math - it has more to do with the curriculum "fit" than the curriculum itself.  There are other good science choices, just like there are other good math choices.

Do you recommend certain textbooks or companies for other subjects? I'll tell them you sent me if I buy their book!

I try to be very careful about what curriculum I recommend, because different approaches will work for different families, but Sonlight is a curriculum I have made a point of praising, because we used it in our homeschool for about five years, and really enjoyed it. The only reason I stopped using it was because I had prolific readers and they read all the books! I especially recommend Sonlight to people that are new to homeschooling, because I find that their curriculum is one of the easiest to find. Here's my affiliate link. If you use it, they will know I sent you! Sonlight

They took Engineering Physics in college, so I don't know the name of the textbook, I'm sorry! If you are looking for help with a high school student working at that level, MIT has some open source classes in a variety of subjects.
Blessings,

Lee,
You mentioned both your son took engineering physic after Apologia Physics. What did they use for that?

Thanks so much!

My 7th grader chose Apologia Science out of all the choices at a convention :-)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I did some reading on Apologia General Science for my 7th grade son and I think that I like it.

Are there any other Science curriculums that you would suggest for 7th grade?

Also, if you have any more advise on any other subject for 7th grade, I would appreciate it. I don't know too many hs moms of older children.
