  Answers to FAQ

What curriculum do I choose?
If you are a parent, grandparent, or veteran homeschooler, I'm sure you have discovered that there are so many homeschool curriculum options available. You don't know where to begin. Take a deep breath and relax. We are here to help. In fact, we have been providing help for homeschoolers just like you choose their homeschool curriculum for over 30 years. Whether you are looking for a few books or a complete curriculum, we will walk you through the whole process so that you are comfortable before you make your purchase. Personal service and satisfaction guaranteed!

We Know Textbooks!

Because we have been involved in the used textbook industry for over 30 years, we are very familiar with textbooks and publishers. Should you choose to have us customize a complete curriculum for you, we will carefully evaluate every textbook before shipping. We will spend as much time as necessary speaking with you before starting the process of developing your curriculum package. We strive to make sure you get MORE than your money's worth.  Ask about our freebies!

What if I have a tight budget?

No problem. Every order placed, whether it is for a single book or a complete curriculum package, is taylored to your budget.

Special Note for Grandparents

We often get calls from Grandparents who need homeschool curriculum. We understand the sacrifices they are making when they decide to homeschool their grandchild or (in some cases) grandchildren. We work with them to be sure they get what they need at the price they can afford. 

If you can't afford to purchase an entire
Homeschool Curriculum Package

We can ship your curriculum package to you in two separate shipments and only charge you for the cost of the textbooks actually shipped. After helping you determine a shipping schedule that works best for you, the remainder of your order will be held in a special place in our shipping department.  Sort of like "layaway". 
How do I prepare?

Before calling us for curriculum development, you may want to visit this page titled General Guidelines for Curriculum Development. It will give you a better overall understanding of curriculum and what is available.
Also, if you have a student in midddle or high school, be prepared to tell us the science and social studies you wish to include in your package.

Will my curriculum package include real textbooks?

Yes. Our curriculum packages are developed using real textbooks, just like they use in public and private schools. They are often referred to as secular textbooks which just means traditional, non religious. Some parents wish to include a religious program with their curriculum package. That's fine. We have that too.

Is this a full year's curiculum?
