Alpha Omega Publications® was recently awarded two prestigious Practical Homeschooling® 2011 Reader Awards. Based on ratings compiled from hundreds of homeschoolers who read Practical Homeschooling magazine, Horizons Math curriculum received an honorable mention in the elementary math category, and the LIFEPAC® Family & Consumer Science elective for grades 7-12 placed third in the domestic science category.
