Christian Light Education

Christian Light Education

Christian Light publishes a curriculum, much of which is similar in concept to Alpha Omega's LIFEPAC curriculum. Originally an adaptation of that curriculum, Christian Light has gone on to create much of their own original material. Christian Light's Mennonite beliefs (Anabaptist doctrine) are reflected throughout much of their curriculum.

First graders begin with ten "Learning to Read" Lightunits. After completing these, they are ready to move into five basic strands of Lightunits: Bible, language arts, math, science, and social studies. The math courses are particularly popular among homeschoolers, and you can read my review by clicking here.

In addition, Christian Light publishes some textbooks designed primarily to meet the needs of Mennonite students but of interest to many other home schoolers: God's Marvelous Gifts (fifth grade science), Living Together on God's Earth, Into All the World, North America is the Lord's, and God's World - His Story (social studies texts for grades 3-6). An elementary-level Canadian social study unit is available, and Canadian studies are also covered in a set of four special Lightunits used typically at seventh grade level.

Christian Light has its own hardcover texts with matching Lightunits for high school literature, as well as for a number of other courses.

Christian Light also incorporates materials from other publishers into some of their courses at the upper levels, primarily for high school electives. Elective courses include keyboarding, accounting, practical record keeping, computer literacy, electricity, agriculture, woodworking, art, home economics, Spanish, consumer math, practical math, Greek, carpentry, home repair and maintenance, small engines, basic automotive service and systems, and Christian ethics. Christian Light also carries a broad line of supplementary books and resources. Christian Light curriculum is available by grade level, subject, or individual unit. They also offer school services through Homeschool Plus.
