Online ordering is easy with our secure shopping cart.
There's an "add to cart" button by each item on our website. If you want to order more than one of a particular item, you can adjust it in the view shopping cart area. Simply change the quantity of the item you want and click the "Recalculate" button.
When you are ready to place your order, click the "Check Out" button. You don't have to log-in to checkout at Lamp Post. If you want our shopping cart to remember your information for future transactions, you can select that option after you fill in your billing information.
Our usual shipping method is by USPS media mail. If you faster shipping than USPS media mail, you can order a shipping upgrade. Please call us to place rush orders or if you need to make sure we can meet your deadline.

When you call to place your order, you will hear a real homeschooler. We can tell you immediately if your items are in stock (we check while you are on the phone!) Our goal is to ship your order as soon as we can if the item is in stock.
We do answer curriculum questions, but ask that you please use 570-435-2804!

If a product is out of stock, we may split the shipment (at our option and at no extra charge to you) and send the backordered item as soon as it is available to us or if it's expected within one week, we'll hold the order and ship everything together.
When an item is backordered for longer than 3 weeks, we will contact you to discuss your options to backorder or cancel that item.
Occasionally items go out of print and in that case, we will cancel that item and send the rest of your order, refunding the price of the canceled item and adjusting S&H, if applicable.
You won't be missing any homeschool specials (with a very few exceptions) at Lamp Post Homeschool Store. Why? We discount our prices year round, where publishers allow. It takes the pressure off of you to make purchases in a hurry and gives everyone the best price we can offer all year long.
How long do our sales last? Unless there is a time limit noted on the page, we will keep those sale prices all year long or until the publisher changes it's prices. Usually that is once a year or less. Publishers tend to change prices in January to March or around September.
Some companies do not allow their products to be discounted and we honor their wishes. Thanks for understanding.
All prices shown are in US dollars and the currency of all transactions is in US dollars.
Please note that prices are subject to change without notice. We try our best to have the correct prices; however, we receive notices year 'round from our publishers about price changes.
Pennsylvania residents, please add 6% sales tax on the total including shipping and handling.
