Boundary Stone Online Courses

We designed Boundary Stone’s homeschool economics course to take a student through ourĀ Basic Economics textbook. This material exposes students to the practical principles of economics and they learn how to apply these principles to real life decisions. They also examine history and the consequences we are currently experiencing for applying or ignoring these principles in our past.
