Textbook Purchasing Information

Marist families are responsible for securing all required texts for their child's courses. 

"Textbook" is an overall term used for any "anchor text" or primary resource(s) an instructor will use for their course. Anchor texts may be a traditional physical textbook, an e-text, and/or digital courseware and should be considered the instructor approved, first resource for learning and studying for your child.  

Helpful Instructions

Please use the following directions and the "Resources" in the right column on this page when buying course materials for your child. 

The BNC K-12 online bookstore is open from mid-July through May 1 for any academic year. 

School supplies and organizational tools needed for a course will be addressed by the instructor on the first day of school. 

Noteworthy for 2024-2025

Fine Arts: Musicians in Beginning Band, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble are now required to purchase the book to their corresponding instrument using BNC K-12. Please only purchase the book once.

MCLD: French, German, and Spanish course materials are updated to latest Vista Higher Learning editions. Also new, only the digital package is required for all levels of French, German and Spanish. The digital package includes the interactive courseware, virtual textbook, and workbook. The OPTIONAL "print combo" includes the three digital components AND the physical textbook. Please, do not purchase both. French and German access codes purchased for the 2023-2024 school year are good through the 2024-2025 school year.

Mathematics: If purchasing a new TI-84 calculator, please cut out and save the TI-Technology Points on the back of the packaging and turn them into your math teacher. Your teacher can receive Texas Instrument rewards for the classroom. Thank you!
