Welcome to Curriculum Crossroads! Do you love to create and teach great online classes for eager students? Are you excited to teach online homeschool classes for students all over the world? We love to bring on board teachers that are enthusiastic about their passions and excited to teach others. We’re so thrilled that you’re thinking about teaching with us!
What is an online class?
An online class is very similar to a class in a traditional classroom setting. We offer three formats of classes: live, hybrid, and self-paced. All three of these class formats are delivered online using the powerful tools now available for today’s teachers and students.
Teaching on Curriculum Crossroads
On this site, you can teach online classes from your very own classroom. It’s easy! We promise! Just set up your classroom, tell us about yourself and your classes, upload the class files, and then set your prices. We take care of things from there and pay you royalties for each and every sale.
At Curriculum Crossroads, we view our relationship with teachers as a partnership. Teachers provide quality educational classes for students while Curriculum Crossroads provides the selling platform and marketing for those classes. We do expect teachers to recognize their own role in the success of their business and do their part to help make it a success.

Our Teacher Support team will review your application and contact you within 1-2 business days with your next steps.

Step 4: Once we receive your application, our Teacher Support team will review it. You will then be contacted by one of our team members. They will ask you to send in three class proposals for classes you would like to teach with us. Once our team has had a team to review your class proposals, you will receive an email regarding the next step in the process. If your proposals are approved, your classroom account will be approved and your teacher account will be set up. You will, then, receive information on on starting your orientation. All teachers are required to complete a short orientation program in order to familiarize them with the process of listing classes and creating class pages. After training is complete, Curriculum Crossroads will run a background check on each teacher. Once that’s complete and all is well, you can go ahead and set up your first class. Note: All classes are subject to review and/or approval by our Teacher Support team. You will receive notification when your title is approved and live on the site. This generally takes 1-2 business days. If a title is not approved for sale, you will receive a notification explaining the reason(s) for denial and a list of recommendations to remedy existing issues. Our Teacher Support team retains the final decision on approval or denial of titles.
Teacher Account Options
We offer two different types of teacher accounts. You’re free to choose the type of account that works for you. Please read below for descriptions of each type of account:
Exclusive without Targeted Marketing
This type of account awards you 85% of each sale on this site with no transaction fees. The “exclusive” part means that you are entitled to sell your titles on Curriculum Crossroads along with your own site (not another distributor), as long as the prices on Curriculum Crossroads are the same or less than the prices on your own site. Even though this account does not receive targeted marketing, there are tools for teachers to market their own titles and teachers are encouraged to have outside avenues for marketing (websites, blogs, pages on social media platforms, etc.). Titles under this type of account may receive limited marketing from the random rotation of titles through the marketing queue. This account is great for:
- established teachers
- teachers who have established marketing avenues
- teachers with a wide variety of products
Exclusive with Targeted Marketing
This type of account awards you 75% of each sale on this site with no transaction fees. The “exclusive” part means that you are entitled to sell your titles on Curriculum Crossroads along with your own site (not another distributor), as long as the prices on Curriculum Crossroads are the same or less than the prices on your own site. Teachers with this type of account receive targeted marketing for their titles. Various selected titles from your teacher account will receive marketing exposure in the form of social media posts, featured product postings on the homepage and inclusion in marketing mailings, such as newsletters. Under this type of account, we guarantee that we will do our part to get the word out about your titles through our marketing channels. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee increased sales or any other benefits as a result of this marketing. Even though this account does receive targeted marketing, there are tools for teachers to market their own products and teachers are encouraged to have outside avenues for marketing their products (websites, blogs, pages on social media platforms, etc.). This account is great for:
- teachers who are just starting out
- teachers with a very niche focus
- teachers who have just a few titles and do not plan on creating more
- teachers who do not have support staff or do not wish to do their own marketing
Curriculum Crossroads simply provides a platform on which teachers have the opportunity to sell and teach online classes.
