"I need your 7th grade curriculum package." How often we've heard similar pleas, but didn't have a package option to offer. Now we do! With the new homeschooler in mind, we wanted them to be easy to jump into and get started. They are! We also wanted them to be solid and strong in academics. They are! And we wanted them to utilize a variety of homeschooling products, so you would have a better idea of what works well for you and your students. They do! Can you tell we're just a bit excited about these packages? They include products we have used in our own schooling. They include products that have a proven track record in terms of success. They include products that are effective with a variety of learning styles.
We offer four series of packages for grades K - 8.
- Starter Packages include some items with a Christian perspective.
- Economy Starter Packages include budget curriculum choices some of which are items with a Christian perspective.
- Secular Packages are similar to our Starter Packages but do NOT include any items with Christian perspective.
- Standards-Based Packages include courses from mainline curriculum publishers that are aligned to state and national standards.
As you progress in your homeschool experience, you will get a better feel for the types of materials that work best for you and your students. But for now, our main goal in putting together these sets is to make it easy for you to get started. We want you to be able to Homeschool with Confidence! ~ Janice

I am new to this site and I was referred by a book about Training of the Classical Mind. The course work is excellent. He is doing better working on the home material than he was in school. He has told me that the level of work is far superior to the work at the private school. The package was very complete . There are home schooling information CD's, websites and booklets included with the courses. I am able to print off his assignments and then review his work with the answer guides. The package provides all the courses that he was taking at school. We added the Foreign language to the set. The package saves a lot of work trying to pick out the individual courses. We are very happy with our selections.
