Is Saxon Math being discontinued? You might have heard this rumor rolling around the internet.
I’ve done a little research to set the record straight.
First, there are two lines of Saxon Math textbooks.
There is the homeschool line that looks like this:
And, there is the school line that looks like this:
As the names suggest, the homeschool line is sold primarily to homeschools and the school line is sold primarily to schools. We’ve contacted the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and found out that they will likely stop publishing the school line sometime in 2023.
There have been no reported changes for the homeschool line.
So what can you expect if you’re currently using the school line? I imagine that it will take a while for these books to go completely out of circulation. If you can find copies of the textbooks you need, you could continue to use this line for the foreseeable future and most likely not experience an issue. I will continue to provide videos, so no worries there. If you’re thinking of switching over to the homeschool line, it would be an easy transition as the textbooks for both lines are quite similar.
I’ll continue to monitor the situation, and if any updated information becomes available, rest assured, that you’ll hear it from me immediately. But for now, let’s get the school year started with one less thing to worry about. Here’s to a great year!!!
See you soon,
Phew. The Saxon rumors were running pretty wild the last few days! If something could go “viral” in a Homeschool Facebook Group, it would be the mere suggestion that Saxon is shutting down their publication of their Homeschool Line of books.
Rest assured. We’re on it.
We spoke with our top-level contact at Rainbow Resources today and found out a few things:
While there is no guarantee that Saxon will continue publishing the Homeschool Line after 2024, there is also no reason to believe they won’t. As we learn more information, we will keep you updated.
After speaking with Stephen Hake, the co-author of Saxon Math, we have another update. You can find the latest announcement here.
