Abeka Home Schooling Academy Review

Convenient ABeka Home Schooling on Video
Sixth grader was so excited to get her ABeka home schooling videos in the mail, that instead of watching a movie one summer night, she watched the first day of Bible class! Her mom shares why...
We have been using ABeka for five years but last year we started using the Abeka video courses for my 5th grader. It is so well done! My daughter not only loved the classes but really enjoyed the instructors and students too.
We receive the DVD classes by mail. Each day my daughter will put a DVD in, and it has all the classes for that day. There is a menu that comes up and she can select which class to watch. The classes are about forty minutes long for math, science, history, Bible, and language arts. The other classes such as spelling, reading, and penmanship are a little shorter.
The video is of an actual classroom with a teacher and students. So my daughter participates as if she is in the classroom. The teacher gives the lesson and they do class work together and go over it. You can pause the DVD at anytime to work out problems or ask questions; or, you can rewind it if you missed something. The teacher will also assign any extra work, homework, or tests to be done after the video is turned off.
There is a manual that I look at daily to see that the assignments are getting completed and to see if there are any tests/quizzes to take. I also grade anything that is to be scored. ABeka does have an option to send graded material to them for scoring. When we are finished with the videos they are sent back to ABeka. It is extremely well done and the teachers are wonderful. It has been such a blessing for our family.

I love when kids love "school" so much, they do it without being told to, or as a fun activity. The love of learning... that's what homeschooling is about, right? Blessings, Heather

Homeschooling mom of two says, "A Beka Academy fits our family great!" Read her testimonial to find out why...
My kids are starting the 9th and 7th grades. We have always used A Beka Academy. It fits our family great! We are using the video streaming option, it gives the kids a chance to see the teacher and other kids, but I can sit with them and go over the day!
Thanks for sharing your experience with ABeka Academy, Kim! Blessings, Heather :)

A Beka Academy DVDs Review
Concerned about homeschooling more advanced subjects? A Beka Academy DVDs eased this mom's nervousness; read her review...
We've used A Beka Academy DVDs for years and appreciate them very much. As my children went into the higher grades (middle school and high school), I was nervous about teaching them subjects that I felt I couldn't teach well enough. A Beka Academy takes care of that problem. They've helped me to refresh myself on many subjects (when I've listened in on some of my son's classes), particularly math, and my children are testing well each year (yearly required assessment testing); they usually score above their grade level. My daughter scored at the highest level in math last year (significantly above average). I'm very pleased with the A Beka curriculum and teachers.
Lori, thanks for sharing both your success with A Beka curriculum, and how the A Beka Academy DVDs helped to eliminate your homeschooling fears. Your thoughts are appreciated and helpful. Blessings, Heather :)
