Home Schooling

“I am concerned only with the proper training of the mind to encounter and deal with the formidable mass of undigested problems presented to it by the modern world. For the tools of learning are the same, in any and every subject; and the person who knows how to use them will, at any age, get the mastery of a new subject in half the time and with a quarter of the effort expended by the person who has not the tools at his command. To learn six subjects without remembering how they were learnt does nothing to ease the approach to a seventh; to have learnt and remembered the art of learning makes the approach to every subject an open door.” —Dorothy Sayers in her essay “The Lost Tools of Learning”

Homeschooling is about a lot more than cracking open a stack of dry textbooks and memorizing random dates. Homeschooling is a way of life—a way of engaging ourselves, our children, and the world with wonder and gratitude! Textbooks might play a role, and we have plenty to choose from when you need them, but the great thing about educating your children at home is that you get to choose the approach that best fits your family and lifestyle.

Rather than a job for little people with time clocks and lunch breaks, education is a path leading to adventure, mystery, wisdom, and delight. Our entire inventory is at your disposal as you equip yourself and your family to travel that road from here into the future. There’s a lot to sort through, but our online reviews and personable staff are here to help you choose exactly what you need.

Exodus Books offers over 10,000 titles that are specifically education related—that means textbooks, answer keys, tests, reference books, CD materials, home school planners, coloring books and so much more. We carry products from over 150 publishers, and stock many of the major curriculum lines. But we don't carry everything—we only stock items we believe in, evaluating materials before giving them our stamp of approval. Anything we offer will have value to someone, though nothing will work for everyone. We're here to encourage you, assist you in establishing goals, guide you through a variety of options, and then give you the chance to evaluate for yourself what will work best for your family.
