Shipping Status Updates

updated January 14

New orders are currently being shipped within 1-2 business days, and we have stock of 97% of the items that we carry. If you still have backordered items from an earlier order, we will be getting to your order soon.

Literature Backorders
There are only a few books in each level that are still on backorder, and we expect to receive a majority of these by mid-February.

If you don't have the literature you need when you need it, you have a couple of options:
  • The easiest is to move on to a different unit until the backorder arrives.
  • If you can purchase the literature from a third party, you can cancel your backorder on the account page of our website. You will not be charged for any canceled item.
Math / Science Kit Backorders
There are only a handful of kits that are not in stock, and most of these will be finished within a few weeks. Kits are being shipped within a few days of arrival, and whenever possible, we will also be including backordered books and curriculum with your kits as well.

Here is the expected availability for the kits that are currently out of stock.

  • Age 8-10 Exploration and Survival Kit (Semester 2) - February 8
  • Age 9-11 Technology and Invention Kit (Semester 2) - February 1
  • Age 4-5 Materials Kit - January 25

Other Notes

Age 10-12: The book If You Lived When There Was Slavery In America went out of print. We have rewritten the unit so that uses other online resources instead of the book. This book is being cancelled from every order, and you will not be charged for it. You can access the changed lessons in IdeaShare.
Age 12-14: The DVD for America The Story of US is no longer being made. The series is available online for just a few dollars an episode, and we recommend families utilize online video providers to access these videos.
Age 9-11: The Usborne Book of Astronomy and Space was taken out of print by the publisher. We expect the replacement book to be in our warehouse before the end of January. We will ship the replacement book along with updated curriculum at that time.

In Closing
Thank you very much for your flexibility during this time. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused such an increase in homeschooling, and we are doing everything we can to make sure that as many families have access to a quality literature rich curriculum as possible.
