Comment: CLE is a great program. So very easy to use



Comment: CLE is my favourite curricula. We use it for Math, LA and Bible mainly and sometimes the Reading. All of it is excellent. I like that it's very independent, written to the student, easy to teach, and has a lot of review. The workbook format makes it very portable for homeschooling on the go or for kids to take their workbooks to another quiet spot in the house.



Comment: We started with CLE Math for Gr 1 and have continued for Gr 2. Repetition of materials provides a solid base for fact,s etc. Each Light Unit is based on a different theme e.g spring, visit to a zoo, which is used in the story problems and the intro to each LU. The course is easy to adjust if our son needs more/less work on a concept. Excellent material!



Comment: We use CLE for our math until 8th grade. I love the spiral approach, the constant review and the workbook format. The explanations make it easy for the children to understand.



Comment: We used CLE reading for 1st grade. Very easy to use, and does a good job at including thinking skills into the lessons. Basic grammar is also included in the reading lessons. The reader is boring though. The stories are very moral training centered. But the workbooks are great at covering beginning reading skills. We will be using this again next year.



Comment: CLE covers Bible, Reading/Literature, Language Arts/English, Math, Science, and Social Studies for grades 1-12. It does not stop at 8th grade as the above description makes it appear.

It is thorough but gentle. The students don't even realize how advanced they're getting.

Comment: I have used CLE for my Math and English and some phonics and reading with both my sons over the last 6 years. Their math is VERY similar to Saxon Math but with less busy work. And is cyclical in spiral coverage in materials. Love how it never lets the information totally fall out of the childs mind and practice. I have never found a better math. And while I have tried other english programs we kept coming back to CLE..

Comment: I have tried abt every method and all the major publishers for one subject or another over the last 13 years of homeschooling. My upcoming students -5 yrs and under- will be using all CLE as far as I can see unless individual circumstances arise. A few words to describe CLE....solid, Biblical, easy to plan and grade, independent if you want after 3rd grade or so( but you can also be involved), predictable as to lesson length etc, reasonably priced, motivational for kids who gape at large thick textbooks, CLE is updating and improving yearlyn we use and live homeschool plus, CLE is a ministry-non profit, serving schools and homeschoolers- not a huge money mongering corporation, the curriculum has a heart for Christ and righteousness throughout every subject, academically competitive and superior to lots of other curriculum. i wasted years and thousands on other curriculum, even tried others since we have been with CLE and found we already had the best. (Used almost 6 years, grades 4 to 11- all subjects s )

Comment: I love CLE! We are using them for reading the first time this year. The kids LOVE their readers and read them again and again and I have heard my daughter apply the moral concepts to conversations with her friends. Very character building stories. The workbooks are excellent, my children love them and I am especially impressed with the vocabulary building in each lesson. Good job CLE!
