Where do homeschoolers find the books and other materials to teach their children at home?
There are many excellent resources for Catholic homeschoolers, from distance-learning schools to publishers of individual subjects and materials.
These schools provide the structure and accountability which some homeschoolers want. Also, some of them are suppliers or publishers of good-quality Catholic instructional materials which can be purchased without enrolling in the school.

This is a good place to start if you’re in the research and planning stages. And it’s a good place to go if you’re an experienced homeschooler looking for something different.
