We are delighted you are still using our materials! We understand that re-using books is necessary from time to time. Your free account will remain active for an entire school year of your original purchase date. After that, access to the Online Resource Library will be available for purchase per grade level. As a non-profit organization, this nominal fee allows us to keep other costs down, as well as justly compensate our many authors, editors, and graphic designers.
The digital versions of these guides may not be printed. However, those specific resources that are intended to be printed, such as teacher or catechist resources, are available to download and print individually. You can find each one on its lesson page.
If this is your first year using our materials, your educator support specialist will ensure your teachers/catechists have access during your orientation at the start of the year.
