Sonlight® programs are readily and easily modified to meet a broad range of academic needs. Our programs provide ready-made academic challenges for advanced students, yet average students and those with learning disabilities use Sonlight® successfully.
Sonlight® early elementary programs follow a modest pace. But if your child is chomping at the bit to set a faster pace, Sonlight® will give all the challenge your child requires. Simply substitute one of the Advanced Readers programs for the Regular Readers programs.
By the time you hit level D, Sonlight's pace has quickened noticeably, and in E and beyond we provide more than enough materials and outside assignments to challenge even the brightest students. Thus, for example, the content of the Sonlight H program is easy enough for a 5th grader to understand, but the unmodified workload is worthy of a high school-level course in American History.
The bottom line: if your son or daughter is intellectually gifted, you needn't try to piece together a more challenging program.
But if your child is closer to average, is heavily involved in dance, music, or some other non-academic pursuit, or even if your child has a learning disability: you will find you can readily adjust our program to meet your needs. Simply slow the pace or ignore one or more of the assignments. Sonlight's Read-Aloud components allow students of all reading abilities to enjoy more literature than they might be able to work through on their own.
