Books Are at the Center of Sonlight

A Sonlight education is built around great stories— living books. And you won’t find better books than Sonlight recommended titles. Sonlight uses quality literature (like historical fiction, biographies, and award-winning titles) to teach subjects such as history, Bible, and science. Children respond more positively to great literature than to textbooks because stories give context to the information they are hearing/reading. These stories create an emotional connection with students and help them to retain the information.

Sonlight also offers academically excellent products for other subjects, including math, handwriting, language arts, hands-on activities, electives and more. Get your entire curriculum in one easy order!

All of the Sonlight homeschool materials are organized and scheduled for you in the customer-renowned Instructor’s Guides. 

Stop Planning Lessons and Start Enjoying Your Homeschool

At the core of every Sonlight program is the Instructor’s Guide (IG). The IG weaves your books and materials together into a cohesive, full-year curriculum. It is your roadmap for the entire school year… with virtually all of the planning done for you.
