    As Eclectic Secular Homeschoolers, this curriculum provided the perfect foundation for us to build on at a price we could afford. The Test Prep Workbook was also a great bonus for us. I love it! I plan to continue to purchase these kits in the future and will recommend to others.

  8. Great core curriculum 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2014

    This is a very comprehensive modular program. It should satisfy the requirements of any school district and it is a good value.
    I would like to get instructor companion manuals, if they are available.
    I would also suggest provision for advanced addendum for gifted students. The vocabulary and spelling units are below my daughter's level and the company could gain additional sales by offering advanced modules as add-ons for the curriculum.
