    1. I hope you get to review this, Cathy! You do such an excellent job of providing factual details about materials while being completely fair and nonjudgmental in explaining who would benefit from using them.

  3. I want you to know that this is an answered prayer. As a widowed mother of 4 kids, tackling homeschool and running my husband's business is not something I was built to do but I am learning. This is a beautiful succinct guide that I am very excited to get into as soon as our books come in!

    Thank you for taking the time to put this together.

  4. Hi.
    I'm considering using Salt + Light for my twin daughters entering 7th grade. It sounds exactly like what I'm looking for. With your six cycles, it would presumably take them right to senior year in high school. Am I understanding this correctly?
    Thank you!

  5. Hello.
    I have some important questions about the content of your curriculum but my query is too long to post here. Can you please email me at: hsroadmap@gmail.com? I own The Homeschool Resource Roadmap, a free listing of all homeschool curricula, and I would love to list your resources there.

  6. Backstory: I homeschooled my youngest 2 for the beginning years of their schooling. For the past 3 years they have been in a private school, but we are switching back to homeschooling this year. They are in grades 6 & 9. Question: Since there are 6 years in this curriculum should I have my high schooler do 1-4 or would is be better for him to do 3-6? Or does it matter? Thank you!

  8. Hello.
    First, let me assure you that I am not a spammer. :)

    I heard about you via another homeschooler, and I have written to you once before - on July 26 - but have yet to hear back from you. As a reminder, I am a homeschooling mom seeking information for homeschooling parents and – having looked over your website – I am sure that homeschooling parents would be very interested in what you have to offer. Thus, I’m hoping you can reply soon.

    My original query contained important background information about my reason for writing; please refer to that if you would like. For the sake of brevity today, though, I will simply copy my original questions below. I hope you might reply within the next couple of days:

    1. Have you already altered any of your materials for the purpose of aligning with the Common Core Standards (CCS)/Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)/College, Career and Civic Life Framework (C3)? If so, which materials? And what, specifically, have you changed?
    2. Do you have future plans to alter your materials – in large or small ways – in order to align with the CCS/NGSS/C3? If so, which materials and what changes do you plan to make? When will you make the changes?
    3. Have you chosen to advertise any correlations between your materials and the CCS/NGSS/C3 even if you haven’t changed any content in the process?
    4. Do you incorporate materials from other vendors into your program? If so, which companies?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Most sincerely,

    1. Why would a Catholic curriculum want to align with Common Core?? The values taught in common core are anti-catholic. Have to seen the side by side videos of how to do a math problem in the old style and in the common core style? Research more and then run!

  9. Hello.
    I am a homeschooling mom – not a spammer – and am still waiting to hear back from you following my previous two emails sent on July 26 and August 10. I looked over your website when I first discovered it so I’m sure homeschooling parents would be very interested in what you have to offer. Please reply within the next few days if at all possible.
