The Compass Classroom Premium Membership might be one of the best bargains for homeschoolers. A monthly or yearly membership provides up to four members of your family with access to almost all of the content on Compass Classroom along with PDF handouts and resources. This includes at least 30 courses, many of which I have reviewed. Among them are Antiquity, American History, and Modernity by Dave Raymond; Economics for Everybody; Devotional Biology; Visual Latin; the Creative Writing Through Literature series; the Old Western Culture series; the Is Genesis History? Bible Study; WordUp!; Filmmaking from the First Directors, and the How Should We Then Live? series.
Compass Classroom can provide a substantial part of your curriculum for high school students, and some courses are available for younger students. There are courses for many, but not all, subject areas for high school, including history, science, language arts, economics, and worldview. Some courses are supplemental but many are complete, two-semester courses with assignments, tests, and answer keys.
Your subscription also gives you access to other resources such as Carole Joy Seid’s Homeschool Made Simple and individual videos from the Is Genesis History? series.
Courses are accessed online through your account. Up to four students in your family can have their progress tracked by the system. Students only mark course components completed. Students do not submit anything online. The program does not test students or record grades. Written work needs to be evaluated by a parent or teacher.
Many of the courses are taught from a Christian (primarily Protestant) worldview. This is especially so with Dave Raymond’s history courses, the Old Western Culture courses, Devotional Biology, the Is Genesis History? Bible study, and the How Should We Then Live? series. Because of this, those who want their students to learn a Christian worldview should find the Compass Classroom Premium Membership especially attractive. You can check it out with a seven-day free trial.
