Davis Carman

Davis Carman is passionate about his family. He married Rachael in 1986 and God has blessed them with seven children and one grandchild. Twenty years and three graduates later, he hopes to share some of the lessons he’s learned along the way to help other families enjoy the most successful, satisfying, and Christ-centered homeschool possible. His mission is to help homeschooling families learn, live, and defend the Christian faith. This is accomplished in part through his work as president of Apologia Educational Ministries. He is an international speaker and advocate for home education, having served twelve years on the board of North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE), as well as being the North Carolina Ambassador for the Home School Foundation, a ministry dedicated to helping homeschooling families in need. Davis has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering. The first ten years of his career involved research and development in the aerospace and automotive industries. The second ten years, Davis was general manager of a growing plastics manufacturing company. Currently a work-at-home homeschool dad, Davis will be found working late on days that he spent serving as coach, math tutor, or taxi driver to educational activities such as soccer, music, art, or young engineers lab. Davis is also the author of three illustrated children’s books designed to instill a biblical worldview. Good Morning, God is based on Deuteronomy 6, and A Light for My Path is an ABC book based on Psalm 119. His latest, In the Beginning, is based on the Creation account in Genesis. He believes that if there was ever a time to homeschool, it is now!
