Homeschooling at the Highest Level

At Royal Fireworks Press, our aim is to support parents dedicated to developing in their children a lifelong love of learning, a broad understanding of the world of the intellect, and core competencies in academic areas. Our materials are infused with high intellectual demands because we think it is foolish to work to low standards. We know that the individual attention of homeschooling enables children to succeed with demanding materials that might be too difficult for them in school settings, where individual instruction can be as rare as unicorns.

For the Best in Your Classroom

At Royal Fireworks Press, we offer materials with the intellectual heft to challenge and intrigue the best students in your classroom, enabling you to educate your gifted students at the highest levels.
