Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonita First year with BJU Press; working hard, learning a lot.
This is my first year using BJU Press Online. We have both the 8th and 10th grade curricula. It has taken me a while of working with the "system" to become proficient and utilize the benefits offered through the program. Each class covers a great deal of information in a day and some classes takes several days to complete thoroughly. On the other hand, there is great flexibility and a good resources which allow us to tailor to our needs and still gain a quality education. As the overseer, I needed to have good support and organization to be assured that I was offering the best information to each class, as well as being confident I was tracking the work well. This curriculum has provided both of these needs and I am confident that my children will be prepared for college and beyond. My husband has commented that because of the organization, he can step in to help and be confident he is doing the right thing. May I also note, that the teachers are careful to integrate a love of Christ and the a love for students into their classes which has been unique and treasured. I am pleased when a class opens with prayer or the students are challenged to live godly whether it is French class or Science or Bible. It is a pleasure using this curriculum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annabird Highly Recommended!
This program is wonderful. Once again, Mrs. Vick does an excellent job of explaining the information in a clear and concise way. The material in the book is thorough with plenty of detail without being overwhelming. Some of the labs use materials and equipment that I don't have, and I chose not to buy a kit. But, the labs are demonstrated on the video, and for middle school, it's enough for me to have my son watch and not do every lab. The online features are very easy to use for a first-time online customer. The quizzes and tests grade themselves and the student's average is calculated automatically. The only downside I have found with the program is that there is no place for the teacher to record the non-mastery grades. You would have to keep track of those manually and average them in later. No big...I just dropped them and they didn't have an impact on the grade anyway. Online science has made my life easy this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by baylormom1214 we are very excited about such excellent Christian curriculum.
We ejoy learning through Bob Jones curriculum. I know and trust the teachings of the teachers and can see their passions for the students and the daily encouragements to the students about following Christ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ontariomom first online BJU course
Our first course taken online, we find Space and Earth interesting. Mrs. Vick presents the material well and is an engaging teacher.
My grade 7 son is taking this course and so far is enjoying it.
The website is easy to navigate for both parent and child and I would recommend this course to others.

I have used BJUP materials for years. My older children have already graduated and have done quite well. I'm continuing with my younger children. With BJUP you always know your children are getting a wonderful and truthful education.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AprillRichardson Challenging academic content
Courses are well taught and geared toward causing the student to think rather than only memorizing factual information. Coursework is definitely geared to prepare the student for digging and thinking when he enters the university world. Bible content is very conservative in nature and well integrated throughout the courses. The highlight of every day for our student has been watching the Bible course lessons before breakfast.

This is our first year to homeschool so I will give my honest opinion. Finding all the quizzes, worksheets, answer keys, etc. is very difficult. Each subject material is organized differently. The facilitator has to look in multiple folders to find everything needed to teach a chapter, and every subject is organized differently. It has made it very time consuming on the part of the parent/ facilitator. It would be extremely helpful if everything you needed to teach a chapter was located in a chapter folder (e.g. Chapter 1 should have all worksheets, quizzes and answer keys organized within the Chapter 1 folder), instead of having to search within 4 or 5 folders for what you need for that chapter. And a little more consistency throughout all the subjects would be most helpful.
