    As you look ahead to next year's homeschool and ponder what curricula and tools you'll be using, there is no better way to make those decisions that being able to see for yourself if a program is right for your family. For that reason, every Friday in May we will be linking you to free trials and demos of resources you may or may not have heard of.

    Definitely take advantage of your chance to take these secular homeschooling programs for a test drive - - without spending a dime! Be watching our home page and our social networks for announcements of each Friday's featured trials during May.

    Because the best way to know if a curriculum or option is going to be a good fit is to try it for yourself!
