Homeschooling at the Highest LevelFor the Best in Your Classroom
A NOTE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
We at Royal Fireworks Press are aware of our duty to our larger community of parents and children, teachers and students to supply the high-quality printed texts and novels, online courses, supplemental materials, and educational opportunities that you rely on us to provide. We are also aware of our duty to our local community to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. As such, we have instituted policies and practices that will ensure the greatest safety of our staff and customers. Employees whose jobs do not require them to be on site will continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, and those who must be at the Royal Fireworks facility are maintaining recommended social distancing guidelines and practicing heightened cleaning and sanitizing procedures.
People across the nation and the world are recognizing that education, while not typically defined as an essential service, is at least of high priority. We are doing what we must to make sure that you can help children move forward in their learning and stay intellectually active and academically engaged during this time of uncertainty, when distance learning and learning from home seem by many to be the safest option for their children.
Thank you for your continued patronage during this unprecedented time. We wish you all well.
At Royal Fireworks Press, our aim is to support parents who are 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 that are presented in an inviting, engaging format because children who are excited to learn are able to learn far more than traditional educators often expect them to. We know that the individual attention of homeschooling enables children to succeed with demanding materials, and we want your child to stretch intellectually, to strive to learn and to be enthusiastic while doing so. All of our materials are designed to enable your child to do just that.
The Royal Fireworks Online Learning Community. With fall semester winding down, we’re looking ahead to spring. However, we’ve had a number of parents reach out and ask us if we can help them keep their children intellectually stimulated during the break between the fall and spring semesters, since there are limited activities available this year and since many children will be missing their grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and other extended family members during this holiday season. So we’re offering a special winter session of three-day workshops in a variety of subject areas, from origami to debating to brass-era cars to stress reduction to the origins of Santa Claus and more, including, most notably, Michael Clay Thompson performing readings of his newest two grammar books for young children. These workshops will engage children’s attention and keep them thinking in ways that expand their minds and frames of reference—and they’ll be having fun at the same time!
For the spring semester, we’re offering a wider array of courses this year than ever before, with more to come as we finalize the details. There are courses in language arts, math, history, Spanish, creative writing, Western and Eastern philosophy, and more. These are high-level courses in a range of subjects taught by experts at the tops of their fields. They are opportunities that you simply don’t want your child to miss.

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 students at the highest levels. Our texts are demanding, never dumbed down; they are wide-ranging, not narrowly focused; they are not worksheet-based or dull drill and practice but instead Socratic and creative. Our curricula are the difference between real education and teaching to the test. They offer teachers the opportunity to go beyond the ordinary to enrich children’s lives.
