Make the Most of Your Christian Homeschool Curriculum

As a Christian parent, you desire to pass faith-based values on to your children. Christian homeschool curriculum can help you do that. The tips below will help your family gain even more value from your Christian homeschooling experiences.

1. Explore Faith-based Classics.

Your online Christian homeschool curriculum may recommend scores of classic books. Some may be faith-based titles that believers have cherished for many years. By reading classics like The Confessions of St. Augustine, your students can connect with the faith traditions of Christians who have gone before them.

2. Point every subject toward God.

As a believer, you know that everything in the world — and every area of study — belongs to God. Whether your kids are studying math, science, or history, they can honor God and learn more about Him. During a biology unit, for example, you can turn to a book like Made By God – Poisonous, Smelly, and Amazing Plants to remember that even the strangest plants were designed by God.

3. Keep a Bible close at hand.

The Christian curriculum you use may quote the Bible again and again. As your kids become familiar with seeing Bible verses and references, encourage them to read and explore the Bible for themselves. To complement your students’ online studies, consider using a digital Bible. Your kids will learn to use search features to find just the verse they need at any given time.

4. Encourage Scripture memorization.

One of the best ways to get to know the Bible is through memorization. As a family who uses Christian online homeschool materials, you’ll benefit from a platform that suggests verses for your kids to learn and also lets them practice and record their efforts. The more times your kids go through a verse, the better they’ll commit it to memory.

Once you’ve picked out the best Christian homeschool curriculum for your family, LightSail can help you make the most of it. With faith-based classics, premium content from top Christian publishers, and helpful tools for exploring Bible passages, you’ll appreciate the many ways that LightSail enriches your Christian homeschooling experience.

How many parent accounts are included with a child's license?

Every family account includes two Parent Accounts.

I am part of a homeschool group and we share teaching responsibilities. How can I access those accounts?

LightSail has created a Teacher/Coach role that can connect with multiple accounts. This is available as an add-on purchase. This account acts as additional parent with full teacher control to all connected accounts.

Is your platform only Faith-Based?

LightSail is available for both Faith-Based and Secular families. A parent can choose to allow or hide faith-based content including Unit Studies. LightSail has created hundreds of faith-based Unit Studies, Bookmarks, Quotations, and Memory Modules.

If I want to purchase a book with your Premium Books Shop, do I have to buy a copy for each license I purchased?

No, when you purchase a book using our Premium Books Shop, you only need to purchase one copy for your entire family. Your purchase includes unlimited checkouts.

How does LightSail’s ChildSafe protection work?

At LightSail, a parent’s ability to oversee their child’s online experience and align it with their faith and values is of the utmost importance. To this end, LightSail contains an entire suite of parental control features and never-before-seen ChildSafe Content Controls giving parents ultimate peace of mind.

These content controls contain dozens of nuanced subcategories for potentially objectionable material based on both maturity and religious factors. Then, it shows parents if a book contains a reference to any of those subcategories and allows them to block or allow single titles or entire subcategories for each child individually. Our ChildSafe Content Controls offer unprecedented insight into and control over the content your children consume without the need to read every book in advance.

  • Block or allow individual pieces of content.
  • Block or allow entire subcategories of content.
  • Require a child to request parental approval before opening entire subcategories of content.
  • Block, allow, or require requesting parental approval for all Classics library content.
  • Block or require requesting parental approval for all unrated content.
