What People Are Saying
I used these programs with my older kids who went to do AP Chemistry in 9th/10th grade. The program is excellent... BTW - My oldest 2 have careers in the science field due to falling in love and having a strong understanding of science early. I accredit this to your program. Thank you!! (One is a software engineer, one is a Meteorologist in Air Force)
“In June of this year I was looking for a science program that all three of my children could study together. We had arrived at a place where their individual courses of study had to be put on hold. After a lot of internet research and numerous phone calls to many companies, we decided on Rainbow’s two-year course. I love it, the kids love it and we are VERY happy with your materials! So far, we have completed the physics portion of the program and I think it gives the very best explanation of physics I’ve seen across many curriculum programs!!! The kids are getting it and understanding concepts that previously had remained a bit hazy to them due to confusing wording and incomplete explanations from other courses.
“Thanks for all the time and effort that has gone into the rainbow. It is a science curriculum we can stick with. We homeschool and that is one of the things that my two older ones love to do is their science. I love reading the textbook it is written in such an engaging, understandable way. I recommend it many others for them to at least take a look at. I know a friend of mine was having trouble with one of her daughters in the area of science and I told her about the rainbow and her daughter looked at it and for the first time in a long time, understood and had hope with science!”
“We would like to thank you, your family, and staff, for producing such an incredible science curriculum. We all have been truly blessed by it this year. Our 13 year old daughter did not enjoy science until she began Rainbow. My husband and I are enjoying it too, and our 10 year old daughter can't wait until she is in 7th grade, so that she can, and I quote, "do all the super cool experiments." As a homeschooling mom, I praise you, and thank you for creating a curriculum that is so easy to understand and teach. Science now makes sense to me too, finally. Did I mention that it's fun too?”
“I am so thankful for the "The rainbow" science program. I am intending to use your chemistry for my son for whom science has always been difficult. He is learning alot and enjoying science. I am too!”
“(My Daughter) was laughing while doing the next section of Chemistry this morning and announced "I LOVE this chem program!!" She had just reached the part where you named the equation "George" and thought it was the funniest thing she'd seen in a text ever. We got this curriculum because she loved the sample on the website with the picture of the cat to convince the student that chemistry is cute and cuddly. Your sense of humor is making this subject work for us. Thank you!”
“We loved the Rainbow! My daughter enjoyed your humor and concise explanations, and I loved the variety it added to our homeschool in those first couple of years after I took her out of private school. Blessings to your work in the coming school year”
“We did bridge math last summer and then Spectrum chemistry this past school year. I appreciate very much the bridge math course because it did a great job of preparing my boys for the math in chemistry. It made the steps of how to solve the problems very clear. I will prepare my younger students in the same way for their high school science courses. Thank you so much for making it available... Keep up the great work!”
“Hi Durell, once again- you have given us a BEAUTIFUL homeschool science program! This chemistry program looks outstanding- you’re a man after my own heart- I thought I was the only person that matches the color notebooks to the textbooks !! Your attention to perfection and detail shows in all you do!! As always- God bless you for making homeschool science an approachable, affordable, achievable, and academically- challenging experience”
“We are half way done with our school year and we are thrilled with Spectrum Chemistry. I couldn't have asked for better... I am thankful for the spectacular curriculum you have provided to the homeschool community. There is a great need for science at this level, and I am glad we found you for Chemistry.”
“We used your curriculum for many years graduating three children with homeschooling. Our oldest is a Neurosurgeon at the Mayo Clinic. Our middle son graduated from the Coast Guard Academy ( top of his class) and our daughter is a manager at the Disney resorts. Your material was a strong foundation to our children's success in their jobs. Thank you! May The Lord continue to guide you, give you strength and to give you a continuous vision for future students.”
"My older two kids have completed The Rainbow & Bridge Math and are now going to start Spectrum – Chemistry... I was so thrilled to find your curriculum and my teens love it… Thanks for your hard work in making a fun and very educational science course for other homeschoolers!"

The laboratories contain professional quality scientific glassware that will provide years of service, all required chemicals pre-measured in their appropriate quantities (no analytical balance or other special equipment required), hard-to-locate items, and everything else needed to safely and easily do the laboratories at home.
Labs are broken down into durable equipment and renewable supplies so that student after student can enjoy learning from the same set by replacing only those items that are consumed. The laboratory activities are led by the student workbook, which includes procedures, reinforcement tools, data tables, and semester tests. They highlight and reinforce the student text material in synchrony.
