Seven Reasons to Rent Curriculum

Posted by Michelle Osborn on

1. You want to save money. Rent at less than half the cost of purchasing. Teacher’s books are especially ideal for renting.  If you are worried about the condition of the book, after being a part of your homeschool  year, think of this.  You, not the children, are the one that will be using the teacher books.  They are not books that will be written in.  Teacher books and answer keys are usually the most expensive books to purchase.

2. You want to try a new curriculum: Try before you buy. How often do you wish you could try a curriculum without having to pay for the whole set, and then decide you don’t like it?  You can try out our curriculum by renting it.  If you decide it is a good fit for you and your children, you have two choices. You can return the rented material after the rental use, or, you may choose to purchase it. The purchase price will be the cost of the book, minus the rental fee that you have already paid.  You win either way!!
