Costs & Extra Student Kits

The cost of one Cover Story writing curriculum set – which includes the teaching DVDs and one Student Kit – is $149.

The price of one extra student kit is $55.
The discounted price when purchased at the same time as a curriculum set: $49 each

The Student Kit contains two items:

• The consumable Student Book, and

• The consumable guided journal, The Remarkable Journal of Professor Gunther von Steuben.
This guided journal is not a blank book, but contains diary entries by the mysterious Professor von Steuben and writing prompts that correspond with the writing lessons.

When someone has purchased a curriculum set, they can order extra Student Kits at any time; but we offer a discount when purchased with the curriculum.

Co-op Licenses and Renewal Fees

The cost of a license to use Cover Story for a co-op or school is the same as for using it in a home: $149. Extra student packets are also the same price (see above). There is a co-op license renewal fee for each additional year that you offer the class.

• Renewal fee for a class of 5 or fewer students: $50
• Renewal fee for a class of 6 or more students: $100

Canadian & International Orders

Please call 1-888-481-4550 or email us if you would prefer to receive an invoice through PayPal.

NEW: As of November 1, 2014, we are covering $20 of the flat-rate shipping fees for Canadian and international orders of a value of $100 USD or more*.

This $20 off is calculated automatically by our website, so the shipping rate quoted is $20 cheaper than it would be if you were paying regular flat rate. For example, the flat rate for a medium-sized Priority Mail box is $40.15 USD to Canada and $58.65 USD to other international destinations, so you would pay $20.15 USD or $38.65 USD, respectively.

*Does not apply to discounted or sale purchases.


You may purchase textbooks and journals for additional children/students. The text is a textbook-workbook combo and the special journal is The Remarkable Journal of Professor Gunther Von Steuben.

Co-ops & Classrooms

Co-ops may watch the Cover Story teaching videos together as a class. Each student would need to purchase their own textbook-workbook combo and The Remarkable Journal of Professor Gunther Von Steuben.
