Classical Lutheran Homeschool Core Curriculum Choices

(1st through 8th Grades)

A wealth of new curricula and resources for homeschooling has arisen in the past decade since my family began homeschooling. There are many excellent choices out there. You know your family and your needs best. Here is a list of our core choices for our family and the reasons for those choices. I hope it will serve as a resource to families who are just getting started, or for families who are looking for a change.
