You want what's best for your children and so do we. Our Christ-centered, literature-based, college preparatory curriculum makes it a priority to help your children realize their worth, find their place and fulfill their purpose, all-the-while developing a lifelong love to learn.
"I was thrilled when I found the Sonlight catalog. Here was a curriculum with a Biblical foundation, Christian values, a worldwide outlook, and strong academics already prepared for my son and me! We have not been disappointed." - Dawn N, Western Spring, IL
Sonlight homeschooling helps you raise your children the way you want to raise them by using our wonderful stories as a tool to help you and your child learn about each other and from each other. Your bonds will develop out of experiencing the stories, characters, and adventures together. As a result, your child will get to know you, and your thoughts, your values, and your life philosophies, and you will become a trusted and influential force in their lives, forever.
Humans are hard-wired for stories. That's why kids love them so much. Reading is the foundation for comprehension and critical thinking. Sonlight is the original literature-based homeschool curriculum. We use great literature – the best books ever written – as the foundation for learning. We believe a single book can distill the wisdom of an entire lifetime in just a few pages. The result? Kids who are much more engaged in the stories and characters, and therefore remember more about the "life" they are experiencing. This basis makes for a much richer learning experience, where students are more engaged, and learn to enjoy the process of learning so much more. Cumulatively, Sonlight students read over 3 million books EACH year. Yeah, our books are that good!
"When I learned of Sonlight, OUT went the TV and IN went the books. The change in my young children was immediate. Now, instead of running to the TV they run to the bookshelf. There is a curious spark in their eyes when they're listening to the Sonlight stories that I never saw when they were perched in front of the TV." - Samantha L, Hampton, TN

"I was initially unsure about homeschooling, but Sonlight's Instructor's Guide makes it so easy for me to plan our lessons and not worry about missing something important. I've been surprised by how easy it is to include both boys (ages 6 and 4) in our Core studies."
- Sara R, La Fayette, GA.
We've been creating curriculum that delivers exceptional results for a quarter century. All of our Full-Grade Packages include everything you need to teach one or more of your kids for an entire year. At the conclusion of our preschool-to-college prep program your students will possess a top-tier education. Partnered with parental involvement, we believe a Sonlight education surpasses all other options. Witness the fact Sonlight graduates, now authors, doctors, elected officials, engineers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, homeschool parents, missionaries and more, are pursuing their dreams and making their mark around the world each and every day.
"I never dreamed homeschooling high school could be a pleasurable experience ... for both of us. I am now planning to homeschool all my children through high school graduation with Sonlight. Jeremiah 29:11 states that God has plans to prosper us and plans to give us a hope and a future. Thank you Sonlight for being a part of that plan and providing hope for the years of homeschooling ahead of us." - Kathleen S, Lynchburg, VA
Many know Sonlight's focus is on history and great stories. But Sonlight also has a full and complete curriculum available at your fingertips. Sonlight is academically rigorous, that's true. But for about the cost of a cup of coffee a day (on average, a Sonlight curriculum costs $2.21 per day, based on a calendar year), your kids will get a premium education that will serve them for the rest of their lives. We believe it's the best curriculum available anywhere.
"From a tentative homeschool mom eight years ago, I am now the 'proud mama' of a high school graduate – who received an honors scholarship! Sonlight enabled me to confidently homeschool my son. Through the years, while the literature guides provided me with academic support, the Sonlight forums gave me emotional support and the sense that 'I am not alone.' Most of all, Sonlight encouraged both of us to think – with our foundation firmly rooted in Christ – and to enjoy our learning and growing together." - Dawn N, Western Springs, IL

"Every year I get more attached to Sonlight and the freedom it gives me to adapt one Core to multiple children. I've been able to keep both boys in the same Core and adapt the Readers, Math, and Handwriting to their specific levels. Science is their FAVORITE! It's a weight off my shoulders to know the lesson plans are already made and all I need is about an hour Sunday night to preview what's ahead."
– Christi N., Mishawaka, IN
