How to pick your curriculum

Be confident in your purchase. Follow these three steps.

1 Pick a history program

Sonlight teaches with stories, not workbooks or rote memorization. From the time of Moses (writing the first books of the Bible), to Jesus teaching His disciples, on through today, the best teachers know that stories are enjoyable, memorable, and life-changing.

Begin by choosing a Sonlight history program below and introduce your family to the world through books that your children will want to read again and again. Discover stories your whole family will enjoy.

From age 4 on, you have several history options to choose from. Pick the program that sounds best to you and covers the history focus you'd like to use this year. When you choose a History / Bible / Literature package, you'll immediately save 10% off retail.

2 Add other subjects & electives

3 Review and order

Before you check out, take a quick look to ensure you have everything you need and have received the maximum savings.

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