BJU Press Online Review

New homeschooling dad shares why he chose BJU Press Online; read his helpful review...


My wife and I recently made the decision to home school our two boys, ages 10 and 7.

Is was not because our public schools were sub-standard. On the contrary, the elementary and soon-to-be middle school were rated extremely high. We decided to home school because we just thought it was the right thing to do.

After looking at many different methods, criteria and curriculum, we decided to use BJU Press Online. We now have access to the online portal, and the text books and other materials arrived early this week.

As new home schoolers, we felt we needed as much support and guidance as possible. The materials BJU provides is incredible! We received two good sized boxes filled with, not only text books, but teaching material that really make us feel prepared to make this leap.

Our boys are excited and my wife is both excited and nervous. However, I have seen her nervousness diminish as she has had the time to look over all the material we received.
We are all looking forward to this year of home schooling!

What a great story; thanks for sharing why you decided to homeschool your children and why you decided to use BJU Press Online! Each family is different and must decide what curriculum or program is best for their situation and children. You made a wise decision! Enjoy your first year of homeschooling with BJU Press Online! Blessings, Heather :)

Bob Jones Homeschool Curriculum and HomeSat

Bob Jones Homeschool Curriculum Review

Bob Jones Homeschool Curriculum Review

I began using Bob Jones homeschool curriculum thirteen years ago when my oldest was in K-5. We began using the Bob Jones HomeSat when he was in 2nd grade. Through the HomeSat program we were able to receive classes for all of our children through a satellite channel directly from Bob Jones. They currently do not offer the satellite service, but they do offer the same material through a hard drive for your computer.

I have five children, and am VERY thankful that I have used the Bob Jones homeschool curriculum and the taped classes. It has helped me to be able to keep all five children working at the same time, so they are not waiting for me while I work with the other children.

Some of my children learn better through one-on-one teaching, so I have taught them myself, but the others do great with the taped classes. The cost of the hard drive is rather expensive. The satellite service was very reasonable.

I now have my oldest as a Senior and I will have soon completed a full 13 year teaching opportunity with him. Praise the Lord for His grace and strength for each day. Homeschooling has stretched me and the Lord has used it many times to teach me more about being Christlike.

Thanks for the Bob Jones homeschool curriculum and HomeSat review, Cyndi! Congratulations on the upcoming graduation of your oldest – way to go! Wishing you a wonderful year filled with many blessings and special memories! Heather :)

BJU Distance Learning Hard Drive 1st Grade

by renna
(Minnesota)

First year homeschooling mom shares her experience with BJU Distance Learning Hard Drive curriculum and some words of encouragement...

Some pros for BJU Distance Learning Hard Drive is that it is a very organized curriculum. It was my first year homeschooling and it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. I really liked that I could be as involved as much as I wanted to be. I liked that not only did my daughter learn about the subject at hand, they would branch off and learn about other things. I know they toured a space shuttle and talked to people that worked in different job areas. Things she wouldn't have been able to see if I had taught her. The first grade hard drive curriculum offers a lot of extra projects. One thing I learned is that you don't have to do them all! It can be pretty time consuming and they are just there as options. The program is a little pricey but they do have payment plans.

Thanks for sharing about the BJU Distance Learning Hard Drive curriculum; your thoughts are greatly appreciated! Your review will be encouraging to others. Blessings, Heather :)

BJU Review: Bob Jones Homeschool Curriculum on DVD

by Susan
(Snellville, GA USA)

Busy mom shares some great benefits of using Bob Jones homeschool curriculum on DVD. Her favorite? Being the one that spends the most time with her children...

We have used the Bob Jones homeschool curriculum teaching DVDs for grades one through five so far, and have been very pleased. Each lesson goes in so much detail and provides word pictures example, when applicable, of what is being taught.

There are projects and experiments to do with the teaching, thus covering all styles of learning: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.

Bob Jones homeschool curriculum on DVD also gives me the flexibility to sit down, one on one, with each of my children if they are having difficulty with a concept.

BJU is much more affordable than private schools and I have the joy of being the one that spends the most time with my children.

Susan, I love the last part of your review: "I have the joy of being the one that spends the most time with my children." What a wonderful benefit of homeschooling! Thanks for sharing, Heather

we love it
by: milo

we have been using bju homesat on dvd for nearly a year - it is excellent, very thorough.
the only thing is the time factor - it takes on average 4 hours to complete, if we are short on time we just do the worksheets.

Bob Jones Algebra I Online
by: Anonymous

We used the Bob Jones online Algebra I course this summer as a study tool for exams that were given at our son's school. We covered chapters 5 through 12. I was disappointed to find that the most difficult topics of each chapter weren't covered. Chapter 13 was skipped altogether (7.7, 7.8, 8.9, 9.6, 9.7, 10.9, 11.5, 11.7, and 11.8). When I asked customer support about the missing topics, their response was that the topics would be covered in Algebra II. My son's school expects him to learn these topics in Algebra I, so we had to learn them on our own. I was left with the impression that the online course provides a lower level of learning than the traditional course.

Does anyone know if the DVD course covers all the topics?
