    Textbook order

    I've registered for our classes for next year and I just put all of the books in my cart to see what they add up to. Is there any sort of "package" discount for us the way there is for the cores? I'm at $404 for our 5 classes. :-)

    Hi Samantha,

    Thanks for the email - glad to help! There is not a package discount like there are with the core textbook packages, but we do have free shipping for February which should help, as well as the Early Registration Discount as well.

    Thank you!

      If all of those add up to a custom core for that student, wouldn’t that receive a core discount if she called MP with her order? Or is it dependent on having a Curriculum Manual?

        Good afternoon everyone,

        To clarify, whenever you build a core package with MP, whether you're taking no classes or all classes with MPOA, that core package is eligible for a package discount. Whenever you are buying an assortment of sets and/or books, again whether you're taking no classes or all classes with MPOA, there is no package discount because there is no package.

        Does that help everyone, or did I just make things worse?

          So if she called and ordered those sets, explaining that they were either a substantial part or all of her son’s courses for the year, then it would count as a package; but if she just ordered the sets individually on the website, or if the sets/items were just one or two things for more than one student, then it wouldn’t count as a package. Is that right? Trying to make sure I understand it so I don’t share the wrong info anywhere!

            No problem; thanks for asking questions to clarify! When we talk about packages at MP, we mean any of our Classical Core Curriculum packages whether as is or customized. Ordering online vs. over the phone has no impact. I suppose you do have to call in order to customize a package further than what the website allows, but the definition of a package remains the same. Does that help?

            Of course, I can only speak for MP. Mr. Piland will have to answer any questions about MPOA and its policies.

                What if you are essentially ordering a core package, but don't want something like the "spelling" module. No offense, but I started my kids on a different spelling program before I found MP. I'm pretty sure I will start WW3 if my stair stepped kids don't get to "enjoy" the next spelling book they've been looking forward to for year. Seriously. Some battles just aren't worth it. Would that make my order a customized Core order or an a la carte order?

                  I bet it would be cheaper to order the complete core for the discount and ditch, donate, or re-sell the spelling you don't want than to order individually.
                  DS12- Simply Classical mash-up of SC Spelling 1, intensive reading remediation, and MPOA 4th grade math.
                  DD10- Classic Core 4th Grade w/ 5th grade literature
                  DD8- Classic Core 2nd Grade

                  We've completed:
                  Classic Core Jr. kindergarten, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade
                  Simply Classical levels B, C, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5/6

                    You can customize core packages both by swapping subjects up and down and by removing a subject or two. Again, the website's coding only allows so much customization, so if you want to do more than it allows, just give us a call or send us an email. Our representatives can customize the package as needed while ensuring you get the best possible price.

                    HTH!

                      Thanks everyone! Yes, in the past I've done customized cores. I'll have to look at my book list this year and see if it would work. Probably not since I don't need many of the teachers' manuals. Just for future thought, it would be cool to get a coupon code for one textbook order for those of us who register early or something like that. :-) But I will definitely take advantage of the shipping!
