Textbooks for Science Subjects

Our teachers have carefully selected classical education textbooks which present their course materials in an organized manner, but which also reflect our primary mission to provide a rigorous and thorough preparation for the life of the mind in Christ. Please read the information supplied in their notes carefully. In some cases, you may be able to substitute editions, but not in others. In many cases, used versions of the textbook will be available through Amazon or ABE Books. If you have any questions about the appropriateness of a text for your student, or about the correct edition to buy, please contact the teacher.

As an Amazon Associate, Scholars Online earns income from qualifying purchases, which is deposited to our Scholarship fund. We encourage to buy your Scholars Online texts (and other Amazon purchases) through our bookstore links to help fund scholarships for needy students.

During the early part of the calendar year, the bookstore may list textbooks for courses from both the current academic year, and the upcoming summer and fall academic years. Not all textbooks will be listed until teachers approve course descriptions and select their books. Be sure that you order books for the correct enrollment year.
