Using Abeka Books

In Your Abeka Home School


One of my dear friend’s family has been using Abeka books for the past four years and loves them! Jamie, the mother, graciously shared her family’s experiences with me. As she put it, “…because it will help someone else make an informed decision.” I know that you will find her input below priceless.


You also have an opportunity to help someone else make an informed decision.

Share your Abeka Knowledge! This is also a great place to
ask your questions!

Pros and Cons of Abeka Home Schooling

Alexa, Alysa, and Aleah have been using the Abeka curriculum every school day for years now. They should know it inside and out, don’t you think? You can trust them to tell you exactly what they like about Abeka Home Schooling.


All In An Abeka Homeschool Day

You have to get up pretty early in the morning if you want to do school with these girls. Wouldn’t it be nice if your children were to want to get school started? The girls like to get started early because then…yes…”you get done early!" Around 11:00 the tummy starts rumbling. Wouldn’t yours? That is the beauty of homeschooling, tailor it around your schedule. You just might pick up a few Abeka Homeschool ideas.

Abeka Homeschool Curriculum

Abeka has a number of teaching options making it easy to pick the one that’s right for you and your family. Some include DVD’s and some are fully accredited. See which Abeka Homeschool Curriculum is best for you!
