Special Note for Grandparents

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

What about combining classes?

Perfect! If you have students in different grades, but are at about the same levels in reading or math, you can definitely combine classes in any subject. It will save you both time and money!

What if I can't afford to purchase a complete Homeschool Curriculum Package in it's entirety?

1. 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.

2. Call us at 888 268 5087 to discuss other options. We will do our best to help you get the curriculum you need as soon as possible.

I have two students in the same grade. Do I have to purchase Teacher editions with both pakages?
No. Purchase one complete package with an extra set of student textbooks for $150 or less.

I don't need teacher editions for all subjects.
No problem. We will simply deduct the price of each teacher edition you don't need from your cost.

Can I add teacher editions to certain subjects in the student text packages?
Yes. Student text package are $150. We'll add the cost of the teacher edition(s) you need to your price.
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 middle or high school, be prepared to tell us which 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 (not common core). 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.
