Will I get a notice when my order ships?
Yes, we send email notices when an order ships. Please setup your spam filter to accept emails from homeschoolingbooks.com. This is an automated process so spam challenges can not be answered. If your order was sent by UPS, the UPS Tracking Number will be included in your email. Please read the shipping options carefully to determine when you can expect your order. If you feel that it has been too long since you placed your order and you haven't receive it yet, please contact us through our Customer Service Department . We will check on your order and get back with you as soon as possible. Please note that your requests will be answered during our business hours which are 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern United States Time Zone, Monday through Friday.

 

What should I do if there is something missing from my order?
Before you submit a "Missing Item Report" please unwrap all shrink-wrapped packages and check each item. We shrink-wrap items together to protect them during shipping. There isn't any specific method to the grouping of items in a shrink-wrapped package. Please unwrap each package and check each item.

Please check to see if the "Missing" items in your order have been back-ordered. There is a document titled in red "ITEMS THAT ARE BACKORDERED" attached to the shipping documents that were sent with your order. Backordered items are generally shipped within one week of your order. You may check the status of any back orders online.

If you still find that an item is missing, you may submit a "Missing Item Report" by clicking on the Contact Us button on the top navigation bar and selecting the "Customer Service - Missing Item Department" link. We make the highest efforts to try to guarantee that your order is shipped complete and correct. Shipping errors are rare since each order undergoes electronic verification before it is shipped. But if we do make a mistake, we will quickly ship you the item(s) that are missing.

 

Can I place and order and pick it up at your warehouse in Fenton, Michigan?
Yes, we have a "Pickup" option to our shipping selections. Select the "Pickup" option and you will be notified by email when your order is ready to be picked up.

General

Do you have curriculum or a package that does not contain religious materials?
When we list the publisher, we include a cross symbol after the name of Christian publishers. If there is no cross symbol, then the publisher is a secular (non-religious) company.

The resources available to homeschoolers from secular companies tend to be supplemental workbooks, hands-on activities, and activity books. Only recently have secular textbook companies offered their products to homeschoolers. In most of these cases, they are previous editions since the school systems do not want current textbooks and answer keys to be available outside of the classroom.

Because of the demand for families who need to do school at home, yet within the supervision of the public school system, we do offer the School-At-Home package. Only textbooks from secular sources are included.

If you need something more flexible than the School-At-Home structured textbooks, it is still possible to use the other packages even though they include resources from Christian publishers. Generally when people ask this question, they do not want their children subjected to attempts to “convert” them. None of the programs we offer push a specific denominational doctrine in order to convert a student. The focus is on providing sound instruction.

This instruction is based on Christian values found in the Bible. In some cases, passages from the Bible may be used in reading or grammar as an example, in the same manner as a passage from “The Illiad” or one of Robert Frost’s poems may be quoted. A well-rounded student should have no problem being exposed to a variety of literature.

 

In history, the curriculum accurately reflects the Christian foundation of this nation. This is a fact that cannot be changed, no matter how much historians try to rewrite history. Again, part of education is examining the truth, even when it doesn’t necessarily coincide with what is politically correct at the moment.

The fact that many homeschooling organizations are Christian-based should not be surprising, since it was Christians who, for the most part, pioneered the movement. The fact that the majority of homeschooling curriculum is Christian-based is because these pioneers wanted to return to the values and educational standards that train up students who are morally sound, academically sound, and productive citizens.
