Step 2: Select a History / Bible / Literature Program

Based on your first student's age selection, here are the recommended History / Bible / Literature programs. Choose which program appeals to you most to begin. Then click the CUSTOMIZE PACKAGE button to move to Step 3 where you'll build and customize your curriculum choices.

That's it. Simple. Smooth. And you're ready for your year.

Step 1: Pick a History / Bible / Literature Program

Choose a History / Bible / Literature program that includes Bible, history, geography, read-alouds, readers, and an Instructor's Guide for one child for one year.

Use the chart on the right to see which levels are appropriate for your child’s age. Then choose a level based on the topics you want to study. If you aren’t sure which topic to choose, we recommend selecting the middle level for your child’s age. For example, if your student is 7 years old, Levels A and B would be fitting.

Teaching Multiple Students?
Combine students within a 3-year age range into one level. When choosing a single program for two or more children, we recommend choosing the lowest level suitable for your oldest child.

    • For example, if you have a 6 and an 8-year-old, choose the lowest level suggested for an 8-year-old—Level A.
    • If you have an 8 and a 10-year-old, you would choose the lowest level suggested for a 10-year-old—Level C or B+C.

Don't worry about your older student being challenged enough. They will experience impactful and lasting connections between the people, places, and events they learn about through vivid stories and engaging discussion.
