Homeschool Purchases through Canyon Grove

Canyon Grove no longer supports custom purchases, but aims to provide everything families want through borrowing from the Resource Library. We still aren’t sure what the lending policies are, such as time frames, quantities, or special requests for items that are not available, but we plan to update this blog post when we find out.
