FAQ

If your question or problem isn't addressed here, please Contact Us.

Calculating High School Credit for History:

 
HSLDA recommends spending approximately 150 hours on a subject to qualify for high school credit.  This is how Dave Raymond’s classes generally break down to achieve that credit.  Some students will spend more time in some areas and some will spend less, but there is clearly enough different types of work to qualify for full high school credit:

* The reader includes 372 pages of original historical materials.  It increases in length as the year progresses.  For example, Part 1 is 150 pages and Part 2 is 222 pages.  If additional reading is desired for older students, we include recommendations for that.
**If a parent desires to do two or more thesis papers for older students, that is perfectly acceptable and will only increase the amount of time spent in the class.

How do subscriptions differ from streaming products?

Subscriptions differ from their streaming counterparts in how you pay for them. Rather than pay the entire product price on the day of purchase, you pay the recurring monthly charge as advertised. Streaming describes content, and subscription describes the payment method.

How do subscription licenses work?

Subscriptions are licensed to a single family. In other words, use your Homeschool Mega Bundle subscription for all of the children in your household! All 130+ lessons are available to your family members at a single monthly price.

If you are leading a coop or tutorial and plan to use one of our subscription courses, we ask that all participating families purchase a subscription to the course used in the tutorial. If the tutorial is using American History, then participating families may either purchase the single American History subscription or the Homeschool Mega Bundle which contains American History and 6 other courses.

Are subscriptions enabled for all of your products?

Not yet, but we plan to make regular increases in our catalog. New products will be developed with a subscription model in mind. The Homeschool Mega Bundle provides access to most of our subscription catalog in one product.

Why can't I add items to my shopping cart?

Subscription items must be purchased individually. If you have existing items in your shopping cart, adding a subscription product will yield the following error message:

Subscription items must be purchased individually with no other items in the cart. Please clear your cart to add this item.

To continue, place your subscription orders non-subscription orders separately.

If I have already purchased a curricular item, do I need to purchase it again as a subscription?

No. We're not providing any disruption to our valued customers. We're simply providing an affordable way to integrate some of our other products into your homeschool.

You may, however, find value in purchasing a subscription in addition to your physical or downloadable product. Subscription products are as mobile as your Internet-ready devices. Going on a trip as part of your American History study? Take your phone or tablet and leave the DVDs at home!

What are the system requirements for using a subscription?

You will need Internet access and a device with a modern Web browser. Ad blocking software can cause problems when viewing the videos. Please add http://www.compassclassroom.com/ to your whitelist to enjoy playback.

Will my subscription price change if the store's advertised price increases?

No. As long as you maintain an active subscription, you will receive the subscription product at the price posted when purchased. If you cancel your subscription and wish to access the content again, you will need to purchase a subscription at the current price.

How can I view the details of my subscription?

Click "Manage" on the desired subscription and you will see information about your subscription on the profile page that loads.  You can see the product, start date, billng amount, and next billing date of your subscription. Contact us if you have any questions about your subscription.
