Davis & Rachael Carman are passionate about family and homeschooling. They have been happily married since 1986 and live near Charlotte, North Carolina, where they homeschool their seven children. Their homeschool journey had a bumpy start in 1996 when God called them to this adventure. Davis is the president and owner of Apologia Educational Ministries—a leading publisher of creation-based science and biblical worldview curricula designed specifically for homeschoolers. Under Davis’s leadership, Apologia now provides online courses through Apologia Academy, practical resources that encourage families in the homeschooling journey, social networking through Apologia World, and spiritual inspiration for moms via Real Refreshment Retreats. Since 2002, Davis and Rachael have served on the board of North Carolinians for Home Education. He is also the NC Ambassador for The Home School Foundation, a ministry dedicated to helping homeschool families in need. Davis and Rachael are committed to staying true to the Apologia mission—to help homeschoolers learn, live and defend the Christian faith.
