Switching to Sonlight has proven to be one of the greatest homeschooling decisions that we have ever made. We have done Sonlight for five years now and I feel like all my children have learned more in these last five years than they have in all the other years combined using a different curriculum.

What makes Sonlight so great?
Students love it.
From the moment I encountered the Sonlight educational philosophy – acknowledging a spirit of adventure, that the world is out there to be marveled at, enjoyed, explored and learned from – I knew this curriculum was the perfect fit for our family. We're first-time homeschoolers and were attracted to the literature-rich focus and Christian foundation. The global perspective and goal for children to gain a heart for God's work throughout the world aligned exactly with what we'd been searching for.
~ Melissa D of Grapevine, TX
Parents love it.
The true gift of Sonlight is that our children have developed an amazing love for learning everywhere we go. They are interested and excited to read and learn together. The quality time we have as a family and great talks that we share about the books we read are wonderful memories. I can't imagine our homeschooling without Sonlight.
~ William H of Berlin, MD
One of the best aspects of homeschooling is being able to learn together as a family. Even my younger kids love to sit and listen to Sonlight books. We talk about what we learned that day over dinner and I'm always impressed with how much each child has absorbed. We love being able to learn wherever we want to. We can read in a cozy bed or couch, we can enjoy perfect weather in our yard, or we can do it on the go when our days are a little crazy. Homeschooling has truly been a great decision for our family and Sonlight has been a fabulous curriculum choice!
~ Megan K of Waco, TX
I love Sonlight because it does the planning for me! I don't have a teaching background and I was nervous about trying to pull together the right curriculum for my kids. Sonlight's Instructor's Guides with everything laid out day-by-day have been a lifesaver, and the notes they include have helped me become a better teacher. My kids get the benefit of a teacher who is confident and not always stressed out about lesson planning!
~ Abigail E of College Station, TX
Bigger picture worldview.
With Sonlight, my daughter is learning to actually develop a Biblical worldview, not just recite one. This year, we've been thoughtfully and gently guided through an excellent balance of both light-hearted and difficult topics, through a mix of both secular and Christian resources. I love the way this emphasis on learning how to think from real-world resources (rather than re-written resources) mirrors real-world discernment and critical thinking skills.
~ Gina M of Orlando, FL
But does it work?
Absolutely. The 2017 Notre Dame valedictorian, Caleb “C.J.” Pine, was a Sonlighter. We've had Sonlight students go to Harvard and Stanford, and several military academies. Sonlighters get full-ride scholarships.
Not that all Sonlighters are academically inclined. But a comprehensive education equips students for whatever their next step in life may be.
For 30 years, Sonlight has been helping families just like yours to raise children to be critical-thinking ambassadors for Christ with a heart for the world.
Do you wish your homeschool could be like this?
Do you dream of a homeschool curriculum that…
seeks to help you teach your children wisdom and discernment, and the ability to think … rather than memorize a bunch of facts
will surprise you, as well as your children, with how much you can love learning … rather than relying on a bunch of worksheets that your children will endure
helps inspire you and your children with the stories of people who make a difference … rather than reading a few dry paragraphs with no stories at all
relies on the method of education that has worked for centuries … rather than using modern technology that consistently offers lower comprehension and retention1
If this sounds like you, now is the time for you to switch to Sonlight.
First month of Sonlight done. Any chance someone would pinch me and I'd wake up from this dream??? We are absolutely LOVING Sonlight! We've homeschooled for 7 years with another curriculum, this is our first year with Sonlight and it's better than I hoped it would be. We are actually enjoying homeschool again!
Will I love Sonlight?
Sonlight is not your average homeschool education.
Sonlight parents and students love their homeschool experience.
As a Sonlight homeschool family, you’ll grow close, talking and wondering, laughing and learning together. As you and your children walk together on this journey, we’ll give you the tools to prepare them for their future.
We guarantee you’ll love homeschooling with Sonlight.
With Sonlight's Love to Learn, Love to Teach™ Guarantee, you have a full year to use any complete Sonlight program. If, at any time, you realize Sonlight isn't working for you, return it for a full refund.
Will Sonlight be challenging enough? Is it too easy?
Listening to books and stories might sound like an easy way to do school – so much so that many students don't realize that their Sonlight books are school. But enjoyable and interesting are not the same as being easy. Listening to stories requires attention and comprehension, two qualities that are increasingly rare – and precious – in our digital age.
As students go through Sonlight programs, they learn to think, which is challenging enough for people of any age.
The Instructor's Guides (IGs) make your part, as instructor, simple. Each day, just open your IG and do the assignments listed.
I will never cease to praise Sonlight's easy-to-use Instructor's Guides. With an entire year of lesson plans conveniently organized and completed for me, the stress of preparation is completely eliminated, allowing more time to nurture my kids' blossoming passions.
~Tanya S of Austin, TX

Absolutely. Sonlight Advisors are available year-round—free. An Advisor will help you choose the best program for your family's needs, and will continue to be available to help answer questions and offer support throughout your homeschool journey.

Testimonials from our Customers
Goodbye public school… hello Sonlight. The drama, the tears, the homework, life passing you by doesn’t have to be your normal. We chose a new normal. Our first year of using Sonlight was a breath of fresh air. My son started to enjoy the process of learning–he wanted to read–he started asking questions–he started thriving! Thank you Sonlight for providing a curriculum that not only encourages our children to love learning, but allows the parents to love it too!
~Michelle C of Jacksonville, FL
Last year we used a different program and to be honest, we struggled through it. This past year we chose Sonlight and we couldn’t be happier! The literature captured our attention and our hearts. I love watching my kids learn together. I love hearing their conversations and play expanded by what they’re learning. Thank you Sonlight for making this year so fun and easy.
~The W family, Sonlighters from Dallas, GA
We pulled our daughter our of public school in the 3rd grade (her report card was all D’s). Now with Sonlight’s help, she graduated a year early, with honors and a college scholarship! Sonlight has made all the difference. Thank you Sonlight for an amazing and truly life changing journey.
~Elizabeth C of Birmingham, AL
We're just a week in, and already loving our new Language Arts curriculum. I swore I would not be one of those moms who switched curriculum every other year 🙈 so this switch was pretty hard for me to allow myself. But I'm so so glad we did. The first grade language arts we used with my first son was very frustrating for him and for me. Great job, Sonlight!
Online curriculum wasn’t working for us, so we switched to Sonlight. It’s a much better fit for these kiddos! #homeschooldad
