Old-Earth-Creation-Compatible Curricula Ideas

Think of this page as being a bit like a homeschool convention, where we bring the vendors to you. Parents can look through the list below and see which curriculum works best for your situation.

RTB staff members have prescreened these resources (though without extensive review) as being old-earth creation compatible. This means they are generally free from both young-earth and evolutionary content (unless noted below). The “secular” offerings generally contain very light evolutionary content or none at all and are written from a religiously neutral perspective. The “Christian” selections generally have very light young-earth content or none at all.

Start here by watching this short introductory video offering some tips for choosing a science curriculum.


The science scholars at Reasons to Believe recommend that students should transition to mainstream secular textbooks as their primary resource by middle school. Supplements promoting Christian integration can also be used. For more information about why we are recommending secular texts, read the article: "Five Reasons Why Christian Educators Should Address Evolution."
