Please Read: This Is Very Important. You should understand that The Christendom Curriculum is not for everyone.
So who should not join The Christendom Curriculum?
First of all, we reject violence,* so if that is your chosen culture war weapon, we are not for you. We are not revolutionaries, but rather the opposite.
*By violence, I mean actual, unjustified violence--I don't mean speaking your opinion out loud, or "white silence," or self-defense.
Though you will hear differently from our enemies, we are not White Nationalists. Rather, we are Christian Nationalists, believing that the nation is the best context for all the races and peoples of mankind to flourish in peace, trust, and happiness.
But there are other reasons that some may not want to join us. To be more specific, here is the disclaimer from our Terms of Service:
“This Curriculum is a Christian Nationalist homeschool curriculum, and as such is pro-American, pro-European, pro-Christendom, pro-South, anti-Social Justice, anti-Multiculturalist, and anti-Globalist. As a Christian Nationalist curriculum, we also support the rights of all nations, whether of European origin or not, to live in their own culturally unique ways; we oppose violence as a means of political change; believe all men are created in the image of God and entitled to all the respect and honor pertaining to that status; and we fervently pray for peace, truth, true justice, and righteousness under Christ’s Law and Gospel for all nations, whether European or African, Gentile or Jew. If any of this offends you, The Christendom Curriculum is likely not a good fit for you, unless you are open to having your thoughts on these matters challenged. However, we would much prefer that you not purchase this Curriculum than to purchase it and then complain because you don’t like aspects of it that we have openly described from the beginning.”
Along with this, we clearly state our return and refund policy in our Terms of Service:
"To keep costs down for homeschool families, we have created this Curriculum using such features as digital books, online delivery, and a no-return policy. Because we do not offer refunds, we encourage you to make sure The Christendom Curriculum is a good fit for you before purchase. We provide a great deal of information on our website, we send out Study Help and Battle Paper samples as part of our extensive Free Sample Pack, upon request, and we are happy to answer any additional questions you have before you buy."
Finally, you will notice in our Free Sample Pack that we are a Three R's (Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic), Back to Basics, Classic Books curriculum. Kids spend the academic portion of their day reading good books, writing about what they read, and learning math.
That's it. All the traditional subjects (Bible, History, Literature, Science, etc.) are covered during Reading.
Thus, there are no lesson plans, no video lectures, no tests to grade, and no "homework." We give lots of instruction for how to arrange and organize your day and maintain your schedule ( a 57-page Parent's Guide, along with Student Guides for every Year, a daily and weekly schedule spreadsheet template, and more), but ultimately, this curriculum provides you hundreds of books and dozens of Study Helps and Battle Papers (worldview/culture war essays), so that you can take our materials and arrange your day as you think best.
If you are comfortable with a curriculum that provides all the content but does not plan out every hour of every day, then The Christendom Curriculum is for you. If reading, writing, and math materials are not enough, and you want specific lesson plans for every day, then our program may not be a good fit for you.
To summarize: We do not offer refunds, we provide tons of content and guidance but not daily lesson plans, and we take positions that are unpopular, including among some conservatives and right-wingers.
These positions make us unique among homeschool programs, and it is why so many people have said to us things like this: “Absolutely fantastic! I honestly didn't know this kind of curriculum existed. I'm very happy to have stumbled across this.”
But at the same time, we are all at different points in our journey toward truth, and some of what we have to say may not sit well with you at this point in your own journey.
We offer all of the above information because we want to be completely honest and above-board in our dealings with people. If The Christendom Curriculum seems to you to be, shall we say, too much too fast, we understand, and we would prefer that you not sign up. Please make sure that we are what you are looking for (and the vast majority of our members have said we are) before you join. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
