The Science Shepherd Biology and Life Science curriculum were both developed by a homeschool dad, who experienced first-hand the need for quality higher level science curricula for the homeschool community.
As a family, we have been homeschooling our six children since 1998. As our oldest child got nearer and nearer to first junior and then senior high school, we began to have conversations with other parents about continuing homeschooling as their children proceeded through the higher grade levels. Unfortunately, some parents made the decision not to continue homeschooling their children through the higher grades, and one of the most common reasons was because of concern about not being able to provide excellent higher level science education. We have developed the Science Shepherd Life Sciences and Biology programs so that parents can feel confident their children’s higher level science needs will be more than adequately met, thus helping to allow the continuance of homeschooling through the higher grade levels.
