I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
Being part of the Homeschool Review Crew, my daughter and I have had the privilege to use and review the Ultimate Membership (affiliate link) provided by SchoolhouseTeachers.com, a division of The Old Schoolhouse.
This post has been updated and can be found at: Everything You Need to Homeschool Successfully with SchoolhouseTeachers.com
1. SchoolhouseTeachers.com Courses and Classes
SchoolhouseTeachers.com (affiliate link) provides over 450 different online courses for grades Pre-K to adult age. Some courses last an entire year, while others are two semester, one semester, or a shorter unit study.
Courses fall into these categories:
Just for Parents
New Courses Coming This Year!
SchoolhouseTeachers.com (affiliate link) wants to provide you with an endless supply of course choices that every child and family member will be interested in. This year, they are adding Korean, Calculus, Psychology, and an updated Microsoft course.
Courses That Teach Every Learning Style
Every child is different, and SchoolhouseTeachers.com knows that. You and your child have the opportunity to not only choose courses according to their subject and topic, but you also can choose according to the type of media content used.
Courses are text based, audio based, video based, and also combinations of the three.
For example, Advanced Chemistry is video based, Spanish I has an audio component, and A Splash of Geography uses downloadable text.
Course Lesson Plans and Answers
Don’t worry about the time that it will take you to figure out what your child needs to complete each day in each course. Every course comes with its own set of lesson plans. All you have to do is print it out for your child. They fill in the date and check off when something is completed.
What’s even better is, printable worksheets come with the answers included!
Easy Course Planning with School Boxes
School boxes are courses that SchoolhouseTeachers.com has compiled together to form a year’s worth of education for every grade level. They’ve already looked at the length of each class and the type of media used for teaching and they’ve put it all together, so that you don’t have to.
Now, don’t worry. Suppose you look at that list and your 12th grade son does not or refuses to take High School Home Economics. SchoolhouseTeachers.com makes it easy to delete it from the list. You can replace it with anything else that you choose.
You are more than welcome to plan your child’s courses according to your child’s interests, but if you don’t have time, you can let that planning work get done for you.

The Courses We Are Using This Year
My daughter prefers to watch videos than read a page of lesson text. So, for this year, we chose video-based courses for Bible and History.
Going Deeper: The Books of the Bible
This course is currently being updated and will be available again in the fall/winter of 2022!
Going Deeper is a one-semester course that takes students on a video journey through these books and topics of the Bible.
- God’s Covenants
- Feasts of Israel
- Jesus & Herod
- King David
- Paul the Apostle
- Psalm 119
If you would like to read my review and see pictures from inside the course and videos, just click here on the colored words. Going Deeper: Books of the Bible
Living Life with Purpose
Living Life with Purpose is a short course that only lasts 5 weeks. The purpose for this class is to help high schoolers through the highs and lows of life by enforcing and educating biblical truths.
The first week of lessons is on “Doors”. Open doors, closed doors, thresholds, and doors that we open for others are the topics for the week.
The second week is about God’s big plan and how to have the correct heart for it.
Week three concentrates on the story of your life, and recognizing it and comparing it to Joseph in the Bible.
For the fourth week, character traits, personal changes, and servanthood are discussed.
The fifth week is all about searching for meaning and what really matters in life.
My daughter hasn’t started this course yet, but is on the schedule to begin in a couple of weeks. It looks like a very good and beneficial course.
