Did you know that you can rent homeschool curriculum and

save up to 70%?

Renting might be right for you if

  • You like to save money
  • Try a new curriculum without all the cost
  • Don't want to worry about storing all your unused curriculum or selling it

Yellow House Book Rental is family owned and operated. I homeschooled for 22 years and enjoy helping homeschool families in their homeschooling journey. Homeschooling is a fun, difficult, wonderful, time-consuming, amazing, wild ride… worth every minute!

Yellow House Book Rental is a service to homeschool familiesWe rent homeschool curriculum. About eight years ago I realized when helping our son purchase his college textbooks, that renting was a more economical option than purchasing the textbooks. I thought, “Why not make this available to homeschool families as well?” Shortly after, Yellow House Book Rental was born.

You can get all your core school subjects for under $140 when you rent homeschool curriculum.

So how does renting work? Rent-Use-Return. It’s that easy.

  • Chose the curriculum you would like to rent. We have a wide variety.
  • Chose which rental option you want in the checkout process. Our rental service allows you to rent most products for a 10-month period. There are two choices: August through May or September through June. Some of our products are semester rentals (5-month period). Need it at a different time? Let us know when you need them. We are always willing to accommodate
  • Pay for your order.
  • We will ship your curriculum to arrive at the beginning of the month of your chosen rental period.
  • Use it, enjoy it, learn from it.
  • Ship it back to us at the end of your rental period. When we receive it, we will reimburse you the return shipping cost.

Renting is not the only service we provideWe would like to help you in your homeschooling journey by giving you several options that will fit your needs and help reduce the cost of curriculum

  • Try before you buy. Rent the curriculum you want to try, if you decide you want to keep it, let us know and we will bill you the purchase price minus the rental fee already paid. After you have paid, it’s yours to keep! If you decide you don’t want to purchase it, just return it to us when the rental period is up.
  • Download– Many of the products we rent and sell also have download options or additional resources available through downloads. Our site directs you to our partners where you can download the additional resources.
  • Purchase used. We have a small Used Curriculum Market.
  • Purchase the curriculum outright.
  • Sell it back to us. When you purchase curriculum from us and are ready to sell it. Remember us. We love to purchase used curriculum that we are in need of from our customers
  • There is a plethora of excellent homeschool materials out there. If we can’t rent it or don’t sell it, we do our best to direct you to others who do.

And it even gets better! All of these can be used for multiple ages!
