If you purchased curriculum this past July through October, you may be waiting for some backordered items from your order. We are shipping backorders every day, and we will get to yours soon. Here are some details about availability and shipping times.

Literature Backorders
Most of our book publishers are starting to get caught up with deliveries, and there are only a few books in each level that are still out of stock. Most of these should be in stock within the next 4 weeks.

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
All of our kits will be shipped in priority order based on the date that an order was placed. Please bear in mind that once a kit is available, it may be a few weeks before your kit is shipped. We will be shipping as quickly as possible, and we will be shipping in priority order based on the date of your purchase. Whenever possible, we will also be including backordered books and curriculum with your kits as well.

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.


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.
