Overview

Distance Learning by DVD

Homeschool DVDs for Convenience

When you lease Distance Learning homeschool DVD curriculum from BJU Press, you get a convenient, portable product that you can just slide into your DVD player on your own schedule. You'll be able to view the classes on a TV set, a dedicated DVD player, most computers, and many laptops. All you need is a DVD player that is -R compatible and a TV or a computer with a monitor. Go to the on-screen menu and in seconds you're into the lesson.

Any number of homeschooled children within your immediate family may watch the DVDs—there is no per-child viewing fee. DVD homeschool courses are available with or without textbooks as a complete grade package or as individual courses for grades 1-12. K5 is available with or without textbooks as a complete grade package only. K4 is available only as a with-textbooks, complete grade package.

Homeschool DVDs for Customization

For homeschooled children who are on different grade levels in a given subject, we offer the flexibility of moving up or down one or two grade levels for a maximum of two subjects. For example, a homeschooling parent could exchange Spelling 3 for Spelling 2. (Elementary students cannot move up into secondary grade levels, however, and vice-versa.)

Homeschool DVDs for Confidence

You can order BJU Press Distance Learning homeschool curriculum on DVD anytime during the year. All of our DVD packages come with the textbooks and all the essential materials for an outstanding homeschool experience.
