-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
at
once--choose our convenient payment plan.

8. Calling all Parents of High Schoolers!

In a poll of homeschooling parents seeking high-level online courses
for their teens, parents said they "must have"... 1) "Courses that are
complete--not lacking anything," 2) "Curriculum that's engaging," 3)
"Specific, detailed feedback for continued progress," 4) "A Christian
worldview that's totally integrated into the curriculum," and 5) "A
price that is better than most anything else out there." Great news!
PHC Prep Academy has all five of those must-haves--and an additional
$50- to $100-off discount for HSLDA families ... and, until April 1,
take another $75 off each course.
