Cost of Reading Materials

Purchase New Print Materials



In order to save time, you can purchase the full set of reading materials  for any level on the Portals book order page. Book orders are fulfilled and shipped to you within 7-10 business days.  Each set of reading materials will cost approximately $650 for the 2024-25 school year.

Use Print and Digital Resources



Many books in the Portals curriculum can be found in digital libraries such as Kindle Unlimited, Audible, etc... If you already have a subscription to these resources, we recommend that you use them to reduce the cost of your materials. You can save up to $100 per year by using a combination of digital and print resources.

Buy Used




Many books can be purchased second hand either online or at thrift stores. Joining online homeschool groups can be another great way to find used curriculum resources such as Math and Science textbooks. Buying used books can save you around 50% of the cost of all your materials for each student. Click here to access the book list on Amazon.

Use Free Available Resources



Many books in the Portals curriculum are classics that can be found in your church or public library. There are a few open source texts that can be found for free on websites such as Project Gutenberg. These resources will significantly reduce the cost of materials needed to educate your children, but they will require more time and effort to find.
