Frequently Asked Questions

How is LIFEPAC taught and how much work should we do every day?

It is student led and mastery based. All lesson instructions are in the student’s books. Teacher guides give additional ideas and cover the theme as well as provide answer keys. Each unit is intended for 18 days. Roughly that works out to 3 pages per day per subject. However, you can decide how long your school year will be and calculate how many pages per day that would amount to.

What is the difference between a 10-set and full-set?

A 10-set is a student workbook set without a teacher’s guide. A full set is the 10-set student workbook set with a teacher’s guide included.

How do I keep my records and who does the grading?

There is an area in the front of your teacher’s guide to place grades, but we also have student record books and cumulative files you can purchase for keeping records. Because LIFEPAC is a curriculum option, the parent oversees the students daily work, grading and record keeping. As the parent, you will need to make sure you are meeting your state board of education’s requirements.

Is LIFEPAC a complete curriculum?

Yes, it provides the five core subjects: Bible, History & Geography, Language Arts, Math, and Science. It also offers many electives for Middle School and High School students.

Are there other families I can connect with who use LIFEPAC?

Absolutely! There are multiple LIFEPAC Facebook groups available for you to join. Find the one that’s right for you and you’ll never feel alone in homeschooling.
