Course Information

  • Textbooks: Our textbooks are carefully selected to offer quality material for the students.  

    • We recommend supporting our local vendor, The Homeschool Room, for many of these products.

    • Books can also be purchased used on the internet or new through Rainbow Resource catalog, or a catalog of your choice.

    • Math texts are available to rent through your Shanan tutor because they are previous editions and not readily located, or it is simply easier to rent and return.

    • Some of the materials are supplied by the tutor to the student at no cost other than a replacement fee, if necessary.


  • Credits: the parent-teacher may list the courses for credit as they wish on their student’s transcript. The amount of the credit is not negotiable due to the amount of work, but some classes could fall in different categories, so the credit areas listed with each course are suggestions only. 

  • Classes available to 7th & 8th grade students: Pre- Algebra, Algebra I, General Science, Physical Science, Essay Writing & Grammar, Writing for Muggles, and Geography

  • Parents are welcome to use the course descriptions to assist them in presenting this information to higher education schools.

  • Honors Courses
