  • Some “satellite” programs are available, where a family can home school through a Christian School and some materials and/or testing services may be provided. Contact your local support group for more information.
  • Libraries often have public school textbooks and valuable supplemental materials.
  • Take advantage of local used book sales and/or opportunities to rent or borrow books.
