Did you know that Alpha Omega Publications offers print curriculum in addition to their popular Monarch online curriculum?
AOP’s print curriculum, LIFEPAC, was actually their very first curriculum and it’s been a trusted curriculum among homeschoolers for over 40 years! The LIFEPAC curriculum offers more than 60 beautifully designed courses for children in grades kindergarten all the way up to 12th grade.
LIFEPAC is really unique because the full year of curriculum is broken up into 10 worktexts — which are portable, easy-to-use sections that combine textbook lessons with workbook exercises. This allows kids to learn at their own pace, build confidence gradually and consistently, and gain a sense of accomplishment every 3 to 4 weeks as each worktext is completed.
The LIFEPAC curriculum comes in a variety of subjects: Bible, History & Geography, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Electives. (And there are tons of choices for Electives, including Health, Literature, Geology, Computer, Astronomy, Spanish, and so many more!)
Plus, each LIFEPAC comes with removable self-tests for each unit, a final test to ensure mastery, a teacher’s guide, answer keys, and practical tips for teaching your children.

On June 18, the Securities and Exchange Commission requested public comment on ways to simply harmonize and improve the private securities offering exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933. In its concept release, the SEC indicated that it “believe[s] our capital markets would benefit from a comprehensive review of the design and scope of our framework for offerings that are exempt from registration” in order to develop a “framework to promote capital formation and expand investment opportunities.”
The concept release identifies a number of topics to be addressed, including evaluating the overall framework and coverage of the private securities offering exemptions, adjusting the limitations on who should be permitted to invest in particular exempt offerings and in what amounts, facilitating issuer transition from one offering to another, expanding the role of pooled investment vehicles, including increasing the exposure of retail investors to early-stage companies through pooled investment funds, and updating secondary trading rules with respect to securities that were offered in an exempt offering.
The public comment period for the concept release will remain open for 90 days following publication of the release in the Federal Register.
