FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can I expect from Sonlight’s Online Homeschool Program?

With our online offerings, you will have 24/7 online access (wherever you have an internet connection) to complete lesson plans—just what you've come to expect with Sonlight's printed Instructor's Guides. Students will have the ability to upload completed assignments. Parents will have the ability to record grades on assignments, mark lessons completed, and provide feedback on uploaded assignments. Your students can edit and upload their hands-on activities and writing assignments, including taking pictures of experiments and artwork, so you have a central place to store and view their work. Sonlight Online is an excellent organizational tool and will simplify your recordkeeping!

Will my student get too much screen time?

Minimal. Unlike most online homeschool programs, Sonlight Online students spend their day reading engaging books, discussing questions with their parents, or working on hands-on projects and science experiments. Students only log in to their online homeschooling program to view the daily schedule and lessons, upload assignments, or view grades.
