In the past, we have been reluctant to offer a complete computer curriculum for two reasons: 1) the homeschooling family is relying on one publisher for the entire content of its schooling; and, 2) having a student sit in front of a computer all day seems restrictive. Switched-On Schoolhouse, from Alpha Omega Publishers, has eased our first concern and offers advantages over a text-based curriculum for both student and teacher. This curriculum offers all major subject areas (Bible, history & geography, language arts, math and science) from a solid biblical and academic perspective. Content is AOPs LIFEPAC series of worktexts, which has been enhanced by adding interactive, video and audio clips, games and animation. For instance, science experiments are shown via video clips. In geometry, three-dimensional objects are illustrated as computer-generated objects rotating in space. Big events in history, literature, and the Bible can be re-enacted and shown on video. Audio clips of vocabulary and spelling words give correct pronunciations. Students have the ability to print out charts and draw graphs. Auditory learners can even choose to listen to an entire lesson or passages within the lesson instead of reading it. Using this software is therefore much more engaging for the student than using the LIFEPAC worktexts alone and automatic updates ensure that the content is always current. Students will also enjoy switching up homepage themes, widgets and avatars as well as using tools like highlighting text. Available in the USB flash drive format, the CD-ROM based product is no longer available.

For the teacher, advantages include automatic grading and record-keeping, flexible (and customizable) lesson planning tools, reports, attendance tracking, and the ability to allow a student to repeat or skip lessons or problems as needed. You can even print hard copies of assignments, lessons, records and more. Up to five students within a family can use the program (at once or during different years); however, if you update your computer system down the road, you will want to make sure your SOS software remains compatible with your new computer system. [Please also note that if you have previous versions of SOS installed on your computer (prior to 2010), games from the earlier version may be overwritten by the games from the newer version.]

Each grade level is available as either the complete curriculum (all 5 modules: Bible, History & Geography, Language Arts, Math and Science) or individual modules. A wide array of elective courses is also available in this format.

Minimum system requirements: Windows 10 Home or Pro (Up to Date); Dual Core 1.1 GHz or higher (2 GHz recommended), 4 GB RAM, 120 GB minimum total space with 5GB available hard drive space, and a 1024 x 768 or higher resolution monitor. Microsoft Office and a printer are recommended. Please note that the software is NOT Mac-compatible and is no longer Windows XP or Windows 8 compatible. Windows 10 S Mode is not supported.

Given its many advantages and reasonable cost, Switched-On Schoolhouse is well worth considering.

I have three students in different grades. This seemed simpler for me as a parent. Plus the children are on the computer anyway.

I love Switched on Schoolhouse Last year I used just a couple of subjects with my son and decided that we liked it well enough to buy all subjects this year It allows him to work independently and I can set it up the way they works for us It has different settings for the teacher/parent There is also not much teacher preparation necessary This was well worth the money I will continue to buy this for my son

I like the SOS program for my children They are in the middle school years and if there are problems they believe are marked wrong incorrectly they notify me I then verify that their answers are correct and change the grade in SOS I would recommend this curriculum for families that are looking for something the students can do independently

SOS has some good points however we have found that it contains several errors I have to check each problem marked wrong to make sure it didn't grade it incorrectly If we want to skip a certain portion I have to manually go into the teacher portion and override marking EACH question with a grade before it will let us continue on The concept is good but the program needs lots of tweaking to get it more user friendly Because it is so time-consuming for the teacher I would not recommend this program
