Saxon Math Renewed for Publication

The popular math program developed by John Saxon has been renewed for digital and print publication

January 2024 Update: Saxon Math Renewed Through 2027

Many customers have asked us about the future of Saxon Math. We have good news to share with you. Saxon Math has been renewed for publication digitally and in print.

For a couple of years, rumors and reports have circulated that Saxon Math would no longer be available. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), the company that owns the publishing rights for Saxon Math, has been shifting more of its offerings to digital programs and away from print programs, so Saxon Math, along with several other programs, had previously been scheduled for retirement. 

The good news is that HMH has just approved a proposal to continue selling the currently available editions of Saxon Math for both school and homeschool use through 2027. We have received the following statement from the publisher:

  • "Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) has recently announced an extension to the availability of the current Saxon Math programs for school and homeschool use through 2027. Print materials will be available for purchase until June 30, 2027 and digital licenses will be available for purchase until December 30, 2026. HMH cannot commit to the availability of Saxon Math beyond 2027 at this time, but plans for a longer-term offering are being considered and explored."

This commitment to maintain the availability of Saxon Math is both for existing Saxon users and for new users interested in adopting Saxon Math for the first time.

We expect to have more details about future Saxon Math offerings (possibly beyond 2027) when the long-term plans are finalized. Watch this page for future updates.

Saxon Math remains in print four decades after its founding because of the amazing loyalty of the teachers and parents who choose Saxon for their students. We share your passion for the success of your students, and we are immensely gratified by your continuing support.
