Yes, it is okay to hold off doing Apologia another year. I assume when you mention the "5 General Apologias" that you are referring to general science, physical science, biology, chemistry, and physics. If that is the case, you can easily finish those five books in 8th-12th grade. I counted physical science for my non-science oriented kids as their first year of science for high school.
BTW, don't feel as if your daughter has to complete all the high school level books, either. For a child who really doesn't need to study physics, for instance, it is okay for her to do her own study on a science subject which interests her. For example, my daughter has completed Apologia's books through chemistry. She is not going to study physics because it really wouldn't be a benefit to her and the more abstract concepts of physics would totally confuse her. However, I wanted her to have four years of high school science so she is doing her own in-depth study of insects (her choice). She researches books and Web sites for information, along with her own observations, then writes about what she finds. Simple but very effective, because she chose the topic, she is very motivated to do the work.
I hope that helps you in your decision making for science for your daughter.
