When thinking about home schooling, its easy to begin to be overwhelmed
with the right place to begin. Since homeschooling has received more
popularity in the 20th century than in the past, there are a lot more
resources that you could have found 20 years ago. The downside of this is
that there's almost too much information from everyone coming out of the
woodwork with his or her ideas, views, and preferred styles regarding
homeschooling. For instance, you could spend a whole day just trying to
figure out all of your state laws that pertain to homeschooling! You've
probably heard A Beka mentioned quite a bit if you are investigating
homeschooling. Although there are many types of homeschooling, such as
Classical, Montessori, Eclectic, A Beka is not a type of homeschooling,
its actually a curriculum package for homeschooled parents to use to
teach their children.

A Beka is actually a curriculum that supports one of the methods of
homeschooling: The Christian Method. Actually, A Beka is one of the most
popular Christian homeschooling learning curriculum. It's a curriculum
guide that is published in Florida by Pensacola Christian College in
Pensacola, Florida.

A Beka is a complete learning system for your child that has all of the
bells and whistle's, such as, teacher's guides, templates for testing,
suggested lesson plans, and well written text books. It is well knows
that A Beka is a challenging curriculum and is usually one grade ahead of
normal public schools. For example, second grade A Beka learning
curriculum is equivalent to first grade public school lesson plans.

Its good to note, that A Beka is one of the more expensive Christian
curriculums on the market, but is well worth checking it out. You can
always look for used books, guides, and lessons plans online or in your
Christian book stores if the new curriculum is out of your spending
comfort zone. Its also good to check with some of your local
homeschooling groups or internet review sites to read up on A Beka
curriculum.
