Information for Christian Schools

We, at Second Harvest Curriculum, are committed to provide Christian Schools with the highest level of service. Our company purchases current textbooks that are no longer in use from Christian Schools and then re-sells them to other Christian Schools and Home Educators. Second Harvest curriculum, also known as UsedHomeSchoolBooks.com has been serving Christian Schools and the homeschooling community since 1993. There are three ways that Second Harvest curriculum can assist you:

1. Convert books to cash, Second Harvest Curriculum can convert the current books that you are no longer using into cash so that your school can purchase the books that you need.  We pay you 25% of what we mark the books for. You pay for the shipping cost to our company.

2. Secondly we can save you money! Your school can save by purchasing used books. Our extensive inventory of pre-owned K-12 textbooks meet the highest standards and provide a cost effective alternative to purchasing new textbooks. Savings may be as high as 75% of the publisher's price. Examples of publishers we carry are A Beka, Bob Jones, Saxon, Rod and Staff, Apologia, Math U See, and many more! Here is more information on how to purchase used books from SHC.

3. And finally, parents can save by purchasing used books. Perhaps your student's parents are responsible for purchasing books required for the school year. We would be happy to assist them in purchasing the books they need. Our website contains our complete inventory and is updated daily. Here is more information on how to purchase used books from SHC.

Our School Service Department is happy to answer any questions that you may have about selling or purchasing books. Feel free to call us at our phone number 308-350-0335.
