Blue Tent OnLoan

Blue Tent OnLoan - Free Textbook Loan Program

BORROW MATH AND SCIENCE TEXBOOKS

We loan textbooks to our math and science students.

 

We've been in your shoes. We've surfed the web and scoured local homeschool consignment stores for economical resources.

  • We've always found cost and content to be a balancing act.

  • In order not to cut corners, we loan out the textbooks we want to use.

A PRINT + DIGITAL APPROACH

We like ebooks.

  • We include them in our math and science classes because they offer convenience and interactivity.

  • They have features embedded within them, such as examples, diagrams, videos, and extra on-the-spot help.

 

We like textbooks, too.

  • Blue Tent OnLoan makes the ebook + textbook combo an easy choice since hard-copy texts can be borrowed.​

 

WHAT'S THE COST?

Just cover our shipping costs. We ship textbooks to US addresses* by USPS Media Mail and charge $8.50 per book for postage and packaging.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

We'll ship you a gently used--highlight-free and writing-free--textbook to use for the school year.

  • We strive to ship only texts that have been conscientiously cared for.

  • Please don't highlight or write in the books you borrow. For this program to work, we need to be able to put each book back on our shelf to loan out for several more years.

HOW DO YOU ORDER A BOOK?

Order any time after you have registered and paid tuition. We will ship textbooks out throughout the summer for the following school year.

After you have registered for a science or math class and paid tuition**, please complete these two steps together:

  1. Complete our textbook request form

  2. Pay $8.50 per book to cover U.S. shipping

 

*If you are an international student, please contact us to discuss options.

**If you are paying tuition with charter funds, feel free to submit your textbook request after registering--and before we receive your tuition PO.
