ABeka is a traditional approach to Christian education which keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable.  ABeka materials have been developed as a result of over 30 years of actual classroom experience in one of America’s largest and most respected Christian schools located at Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Florida.
