For over a decade, Essential Skills Advantage has been equipping schools in the USA and Canada with high-quality educational software for grades K-6. Their programs are designed to encourage students and improve their grades.

Now, for the first time, we’re introducing these tools at home.  This is a HUGE benefit to the homeschool family especially for those that are required to take standardize tests each year.

Essential Skills Advantage offers students:

  •    Our programs are not a replacement for curriculum, but rather an excellent resource to use to help students build the essential skills required to achieve success
  •    We focus on simplicity and provide a great learning tool that avoids too many distractions in order to help the child focus on the task at hand
  •    Programs are based on leading research and best practices
  •    The programs support visual, auditory, and tactile learning styles
  •   The programs are proven to build a child’s confidence and motivation
  •   We offer Math and Reading programs for K-6; Our Science program is comprehensive for Kindergarten through grade 3; Our Geography program is comprehensive for grades 4-6

My 8 year old who is starting 3rd grade this upcoming school year has been working on the 2nd grade level.  Each student is required to take a pretest in order to properly place the student in the appropriate level.  The pretest was rather long for my 8 year old, so it took him several days to complete the entire testing for all subjects.  The program is very forgiving and allowed him to immediately start where he left off.  The assessments are only included in the All-Access Plans, whereas the individual courses (purchased separately) do not have this option and instead provide all the modules for the course.

I really appreciate that Essential Skills Advantage is not designed as a distracting video game, but a structured learning environment that holds my busy child’s attention.  My son excels in the reading, spelling, and phonics area, but needs a little extra practice in the variety of math concepts.  He is very bright in math, but due to our math program scope and sequence we have not covered all of the concepts yet.


The yellow stars on the menu represent that the child has placed out of that topic, the black means that there are lessons available for them to practice.  Depending on the day, I usually tell him to complete 1 star for reading, spelling, and math.  He would spend all day on the computer, so I must limit his time.

He loves the little bell that rings when he gets a problem correct.  Also, he is persistent to get at least an 80% on the activity.  If not, he gets a tad upset, so we are also working on not being a perfectionist.

Essential Skills Advantage is a supplement for all curriculum choices.  I like the idea that he will be exposed to certain topics that we will not necessarily cover this year, and so I can be assured that he has been exposed to it with this program.  This is a perfect product for homeschoolers that must meet state requirements.  Also, it keeps my son busy while I am working with older children or having quiet time.

My 6 year old will be taking the pretest in the next couple of weeks and he is excited to get started like his older brother.

Essential Skills advantage is a great fit for our homeschool family.
