Sonlight Core 530

College-bound students who need to brush up on (and enjoy!) some of the world's great literature may well wish to do so in the context of Sonlight's Core 530, a literature only course for upper high school students. British literature is the focus, with great books ranging from Frankenstein and Paradise Lost to the Lord of the Flies and A Severe Mercy.

A full language arts/poetry/vocabulary program accompanies, so students are sure to know the practical application of much of what they read. Many of these books come from a decidedly non-Christian perspective, but by this time your kids should be able to digest and interact with opposing viewpoints from a solidly Christian worldview.

Please Note: Sonlight Curriculum does not sell their materials to Exodus Books. We carry many of the same titles, and are often able to obtain used copies of books they publish. The following is culled from their 2011 website and includes most of their selection, though it is not comprehensive, nor is it in any sort of curricular order. For a complete listing, visit the Sonlight Curriculum website.
