the secret structure of English. Widely used for homeschooling, SAT
prep, and as a language tuneup for writers and people in business. Just as
phonics helps children figure out what words are, Latin and Greek help
them figure out what words mean. Without an early working knowledge of
these indispensable components of their language, children are
handicapped in their ability to use words well. Why do we put off until it is
almost too late, or never provide the opportunity to cultivate
understanding of the vivid, active imagery that confers power in the use
of our language.

                      Saxon Upper Grades 9-12
Saxon’s upper grades mathematics series is fully integrated, covering
algebra, geometry, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, secondary-level
pre-calculus, and mathematical analysis. When your child finishes the
three-text series Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Advanced Mathematics, he or
she will be well prepared to study Saxon Calculus or college calculus.
