Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Review

Homeschooling mom shares why she uses Sonlight homeschool curriculum and some great money-saving tips. Check out her only regret so you don't make the same mistake!


This is only our family's second year with Sonlight homeschool curriculum, but I wish we had started with this curriculum so much sooner! Since I've never taught Sonlight in the past, I began with Core 1/2 to absorb a rounded year of world history study, even though we were in our seventh year of homeschooling.

We borrowed the books from another family, not knowing if Sonlight would be a good fit or not. Needless to say, I had difficulty returning the box at the end of the year! There were so many books to enjoy! The kids remember much more from reading historical fiction, than memorizing stuffy names and dates. Anyone can easily stretch one year into two, with as many readers as Sonlight provides.

This year, we've begun Core 3/4, American History. The readers are once again, superb. This year, a friend has graciously let us borrow Core 3/4, which is an added bonus for our family, but the curriculum does seem to be reasonable for the amount of books included in each core.

I know that Sonlight has various methods of payment, including an option to pay for the curriculum over time, if needed. I have had friends buy part of their Core with Sonlight, and check the readers out from the library, or find readers in the used section of Amazon. This can be another economical way to get started. In the end, I know that our family will certainly continue with Sonlight homeschool curriculum!

Kathy, thanks for sharing why you chose and will continue to use Sonlight with your family. Thanks also for including some money-saving tips to help others stretch their homeschool dollars further. Blessings, Heather :)

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Money-Saving Tips

by Michelle
(Miramar, Fl)


Sonlight homeschool curriculum offers a wonderful selection of home school material for your family. I have used Cores 1, 2, 4 and 6. My children have absorbed so much information.

Sonlight offers 10% off once you purchase a core so you can purchase the complete curriculum at a great price. I have also been able to resell my cores at about the same price I purchased them at on the Sonlight Forums.

Sonlight is a great curriculum that ends up costing very little after use. We used it along with Teaching Textbooks math and Apologia Science.

Michelle, thanks for the Sonlight homeschool curriculum testimonial and money-saving tips! Blessings, Heather :)

Money-Saving Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Tip

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Review

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Review

Wise homeschooling mom shares a money-saving Sonlight homeschool curriculum tip for those who think Sonlight is too expensive!

Our family used Sonlight's curriculum from the beginning of our homeschooling venture. We have used it for 1st - 7th grade, and loved each year! We laughed and cried with the wonderful literature, and learned so much about the world!

I had never used a timeline and it helped so much, showing us where historical events fell in relation to other events. The schedule made MY life so easy! I just followed along each day in my Instructor's Guide, and as my children got a little older, I made them their own copy so they could mark off subjects when they were finished.

You may think Sonlight is expensive. I did, initially! However, I can tell you from my own experience that I sold every grade package for about 70-80% of what I paid! Sonlight has a forum area on their website where you can buy and sell. They really are in the business because they LOVE it!

Go online and look at the catalog for yourself. I wish I had been schooled with Sonlight!!

Thanks for the Sonlight homeschool curriculum review, Kelly! I LOVE your money-saving tip; thanks for mentioning their used curriculum forum. Happy Homeschooling, Heather :)

Used curriculum forum

Sonlight no longer has a used curriculum forum apparently. I guess they are hoping people won't be able to find their curriculum used and will just buy it new.

Sonlight Core 5

by Amy

We used this for our curriculum base for my three children last year for grades 5th,7th,and 8th graders and thoroughly enjoyed them. The readers were fantastic and they gave my 3 kids a greater appreciation of different types of literature.
