How Sonlight Cares

Sonlight was born out of a desire to help God's international ambassadors – missionaries – stay on the field one more year. Certain values have permeated every part of the business from when we first started in a corner of a house and a tiny garage down the street, to where we are today, almost 30 years later, with a large office-warehouse and a full-time staff. Certain things to us are non-negotiables when we think about you, our staff, and the bigger world in which we live.

Here is a glimpse of what you are supporting when you choose to buy from this family-owned company.

How we care for you

When you buy from Sonlight you get a great product that produces proven results. From the beginning, we determined to supply our customers "the best of the best" on the market. That's our base.

  • Enjoy a One-Year Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee. It's intimidating to start a new journey. We want to remove at least one fear by giving you time to truly jump in and try it, figure out what works for your family, and adjust if you need to.
  • Receive a 10% discount on additional purchases for one year, plus early access and special discounts to exclusive sales throughout the year.
  • Have access to experienced homeschool moms – we call them Advisors – who are passionate to help you choose exactly what's best for your family. Our Advisors are moms who have used or are still using Sonlight. They understand your needs and what you're going through.
  • Get to join a vibrant online community. Sonlight Connections offers support and community 24/7, 365 days a year: whenever you need it. This is just another way we want to make sure that when you have questions, are looking for reassurance, or are wondering what others are doing, you have a place to go. Connections allow you to meet others who are walking a similar road.
  • Have the opportunity to participate in a dollar-for-dollar missions educational fundraiser. Mission outreach is one of our top priorities. It is built into every part of who we are, and we wouldn't have it any other way. And so we love partnering with the agencies we support to create these special events. They enable Sonlight students not only to learn about how the Gospel makes a difference around the world, but to help make a strategic difference to "the least, the last, the lost."
  • Receive a 50%-off Instructor's Guide Repurchase Discount. Purchase any IG directly from Sonlight, and you qualify for a future new one at 50% of the thencurrent price. We want homeschooling to be something you are able to do every year you desire, and we want to make it possible for you to receive our most recent version with as little pain as possible. We work hard to make sure that each year you have the best books, resources, and design.

Sonlight has never wavered from its commitment to empower families to enjoy the best possible educational experience. We have formed our policies and products around this desire to care for you.

How we care for our employees

When you purchase from Sonlight, you enable us to...

  • Pay every employee a highly competitive wage. We absolutely believe that "the worker is worthy of his hire" (Luke 10:7). And so we have made it policy from the beginning to pay more than what the majority of people consider "fair."
  • Provide a full range of benefits. We know that a company is only as great as the people it employs, and we love the people we work with. We want to make sure they are cared for with any medical need that might arise, so we offer high quality, companypaid medical insurance, long-term disability insurance, profit sharing, 401(k), and more.
  • Provide a safe, comfortable, pleasant work environment. Because we respect people's bodies, we don't want the work they do to destroy our employee's health or well-being. So we have made it a priority always to make sure that whether they work in the office or the warehouse, they will be as safe and comfortable as possible. What does that mean? Among other things: ensuring warehouse employees have whatever safety equipment or training they need; providing stress-relief matting throughout the warehouse; offering standing desks to anyone who wants one; and more.

From the very beginning we committed ourselves to treat employees with the utmost respect and care, and, we're grateful to say, we've worked with some employees for over 20 years. We count that stability and those relationships great blessings.

How we care for our world

Your purchase from Sonlight supports...

  • Planting churches among the unreached. Every year since its inception, Sonlight has given a portion of its profits to planting churches among unreached THUMB groups. THUMB: Tribals, Hindus, Unreached Chinese, Muslims and Buddhists – the five major groups around the world with the lowest percentage of Christians among them. We love to be able to support God's work among the peoples of the earth.
  • Paying vendors "on time at the latest." This has been our commitment from the beginning. Our vendors – some of them homeschooling families themselves – rely on us to pay them fully and on time. And we do. Always. That is our promise and our practice.
  • The best environmental practices. Because we believe God created the earth and has charged us to care for it, Sonlight has always worked to be as environmentally responsible as we can. That's why we built our building with a concern for energy efficiency; why we invested in a solar power system to help offset our energy needs; why we pay to recycle all the cardboard, metal, and paper we can. And more.

We take seriously our responsibility to live out godly values in today's business environment. We believe that we will be held to account one day, and, therefore, we seek to care for our customers, our employees, our vendors, and the environment to the best of our ability and to use all of our resources wisely – to God's glory and everyone's benefit.

We do these things because that's how we believe a business should be run.

SonlightCaresTM Policies

One-year Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee

Buy any complete Sonlight History / Bible / Literature program or All- Subjects Package, and the Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee is yours. Or create your own complete program by combining any History / Bible / Literature with any math, language arts, and science programs (one each per History / Bible / Literature), on one order… you’re still covered.

Take up to one year to actually use the first half of your eligible program(s). Then if you don’t love it ... if you aren’t convinced Sonlight makes homeschooling a pleasure for you and your kids, please return your program—the entire package, used books and all. We’ll give you a full refund of your purchase price.

This unmatched one-year Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee includes the following provisions:

  1. You have up to one year from date of purchase to use anything scheduled through Week 18 and you can still return it all for a full refund.
  2. If you decide you don’t love Sonlight, you can return either the portion of your program that you don’t like, or your entire program. All materials not scheduled for use until after Week 18 must be in unused, resalable condition (as explained in the 6-Month Return Policy). If you want a refund for your entire program, we must receive all your materials – used and unused.
  3. If you’d like to keep part of your package, we will accept one partial return of materials in any packages that qualify for the Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee (that way you can keep those items that work for you). Any items you keep following that one-time partial return are subject to the terms of our standard 6-Month Return Policy.
  4. A full or partial History / Bible / Literature return (even if purchased within a Sonlight All-Subjects Package) WILL DISQUALIFY you from SonlightCares™ that comes with a History / Bible / Literature purchase.
  5. Refund of your purchase price does not include reimbursement of your return shipping expenses.

We’ve got your back with this guarantee. We’re confident that with Sonlight, you’ll get everything you need to succeed. So try Sonlight and see if you love it! Chances are ... you will.

Anything not covered by the Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee falls under the 6-Month Return Policy.

IG Repurchase Discount

To help you use Sonlight with multiple children, we give you a 50% discount on future editions of any Instructor’s Guide (IG) you purchase from Sonlight. In other words, when you’re ready to re-use a program with a younger child, you can update to the most current version of the IG at 50% of the current cost. The online cart system will automatically apply this discount when you order online.

Please note: We offer the repurchase discount with the understanding that the new Instructor’s Guide is for the purpose of replacing the previous edition(s) for the benefit of the original purchaser only. For more details see sonlight.com/repurchase.

Free Shipping

The purchase of a History / Bible / Literature or All-Subjects Package qualifies you for fast, trackable shipping for free to the lower 48 states! A History / Bible / Literature or All-Subjects Package purchase qualifies you for this free shipping for all orders for a year, including the initial qualifying order. Once you purchase your fifth History / Bible / Literature or All-Subjects Package, you receive this perk for life!

10% Discount

Your 10% discount lets you buy anything else you need throughout the year.

  • All Sonlighters get a 10% discount on orders over $499 that include an Instructor's Guide (IG).
  • Customers who purchase an All-Subjects Package receive our biggest discount, 20%, on that package. Customers who purchase a History / Bible / Literature receive 15% on that package. Both receive a 10% discount on nearly everything else they buy for a full year.
  • Customers who have purchased five or more History /Bible / Literature or All-Subjects Packages receive a 10% discount on nearly everything else they buy for life!
  • We have already applied the 10% (or greater) discount on each All-Subjects Package and History / Bible / Literature program. No additional discounts apply. All additional purchases made throughout the year will receive a 10% discount.

*Due to restrictions from some publishers, we are not allowed to discount Math-U-See, Spelling-You-See, Rosetta Stone, Singapore Math, All About Spelling, A Child’s History of the World and a few other products.

Eligible for College Scholarships

When you purchase and your students use five Sonlight History / Bible / Literature programs, they become eligible for the Sonlight College Scholarship program. Students preparing to enter college can apply for scholarships worth up to $20,000. One category of scholarships puts the most emphasis on academic performance, and the other values creativity, acts of kindness, and other factors higher than academics.
