Pennsylvania Homeschoolers

AP* Online Classes

My favorite assignment was constructing a brain website to aid myself and the other students in reviewing this part of the body. This course definitely enhanced my interest in the subject particularly because Mrs. G's love for psychology was so apparent and consequently contagious!

We offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses to homeschooled students worldwide. (Our classes are not available to public or private brick-and-mortar school students.) Our 2017-2018 school year class descriptions are now updated. To learn more about our classes, please browse our course descriptions and the reviews from past students and their parents. Reviews are linked at the end of each course description. 

We are pleased to be able to offer once again a full listing of AP courses-- hope you'll be able to find a course here that matches your student's interests and abilities! These courses help students be well prepared for the College Board AP Exams, given in mid-May each year (see this link for the 2017-2018 AP exam schedule).

FLASH!!! We really enjoyed this blog article, reviewing AP courses available online, from the PrepScholar blog site-- this is NOT a site just for homeschoolers. Guess which online program gets TOP BILLING??? Yep, Pennsylvania Homeschoolers AP Online!!! 
 
NEW COURSE for 2017-2018!!! We are so pleased to now be able to offer AP COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES for the first time! This course takes a different approach to computer science than our regular AP Computer Science course-- these two courses prepare students for two very different AP exams. We are delighted to welcome new teacher Rebekah Lang to lead this new class (and if you are wondering if she might be related to AP Computer Science teacher Cynthia Lang-- yes!! Rebekah is Cynthia's daughter-in-law!)
 
NEW TEACHER for AP Music Theory for 2017-2018! We are delighted to welcome new teacher Hannah Jackson to take over leading our AP Music Theory course. We thank long-term teacher Melissa Makin for her many years of helping students be very ready for this challenging AP exam-- and wish her the best as she moves on to spending more time with her growing family. Hannah Jackson is highly qualified for this position, and we feel so blessed to have her join our staff of dedicated AP teachers! 
 
ADDITIONAL teacher for AP English Language for 2017-2018! We are very pleased to welcome new teacher Melissa Barnes to lead a fourth section of this very popular course. She has wonderful qualifications, and her own homeschooled teens have taken part in our AP Online classes-- so she knows what families are looking for in our program!
 
Welcoming back AP European History teacher Hannah Donohue! We are very pleased that Hannah Donohue is able to return this year and continue leading AP European History with our program, after a year 'leave'. 

NCAA--YESSS!!! We have completed the process to have our AP courses approved as *core courses* for the NCAA eligibility requirements for student athletes seeking to play Division I and II sports in college. (The only AP courses we offer not considered as 'core courses' are AP Art History, AP Studio Art, and AP Music Theory-- these don't count as 'core courses' for public schools, either...) We can now submit our Pennsylvania Homeschoolers AP Online transcripts for our student-athletes who are registered with the NCAA. Hooray!!!

During the 2016-2017 school year we had approximately 735 students involved in our classes, and many of these students were taking two, three, and even four classes through our program. We hope that your students will be able to join us next school year! We are proud of the academic community that has developed as homeschooled high school students connect with their bright, motivated classmates from all across our nation and even around the world.

Our classes develop a community of scholars who interact through class postings, course-related games, responding to one another's work, discussions, and much more. Check out our new Class Showcase postings by teachers to get a feel for their classes in action. 

See statistics from the College Board showing that more than three quarters of our students earn top grades of 4 or 5 on the AP exams, and learn how word of mouth has helped our courses grow without a marketing campaign or corporate backing.

In short, find out what makes hundreds of homeschooled students return to our courses year after year. We hope you join our class community! Learn more...

Just a *few* of our AP Online classes still are accepting new students! Hope you have found a class that will be a terrific addition to your homeschool student's schedule for the 2017-2018 school year.
