You need to be familiar with your state law concerning the legalities of and the requirements for teaching your child(ren) at home. We suggest that you do a search to find a homeschool support group in your state. They will be familiar with the law in your state.
You can place your order online with our shopping cart, by phone, or by mail.
Most major credit cards and PayPal are accepted. Checks (United States funds only) are also accepted by mail or through PayPal.
First of all, pray for wisdom. There is a wealth of information about home schooling in the library, on the web, or in your local homeschool support group. So much is available that it can be overwhelming. The Lord will direct your steps if you ask Him.
Read books on homeschooling: In our homeschooling section we have several books which cover this subject. I suggest reading a basic book on home schooling such as:
Find a Support Group or Start a Homeschool Support Group. Get connected with a local home school organization. Most of these books list contacts on a state level or you can try the Internet (which is probably how you found us!) Other home schooling parents are a great source of encouragement and information.
Browse through our online catalog for more information on various products!
Or read a book on selecting curriculum that includes product reviews such as:
Most of our first time homeschool customers prefer to go with a "canned" curriculum -- where everything is included -- because it makes them feel confident. However, after the first year most homeschoolers are more experienced, relaxed and inspired. They are ready to pursue curriculum that was specifically written and designed for homeschooling families by homeschooling authors. This type of curriculum can be scary to a new homeschooler because there is so much freedom in selecting topics and methods of study. That's why we try to include information in our product descriptions to help you make your curriculum selections. You can also contact us if you have questions. We will try to help or direct you to someone who can.
