BNC K-12 Direct Bookstore - Ordering Instructions 

ISBN numbers are provided through BNC K-12 so you are welcome to shop for a lower price if you choose (e.g. Amazon). The digital content or print must be the same edition as provided by BNC Direct and must be device compatible.

For novels and paperbacks, some students have found The Book Rack, (located directly across the street from AC), to have a better price.





Digital Textbooks

The types of digital textbooks/content that students will purchase for their classes at Arlington Catholic High School

ebooks -  ebook/eTextbook is a digital, downloadable version of a physical textbook (usually a PDF format).  These books are sold through our BNC K-12 Direct bookstore and Vitalsource.  Vitalsource Bookshelf® is the platform in which is used to read, study and learn.   Most of these books are a one year rental, the student does not own the book.  (Vitalsource Bookshelf App needs to be downloaded to the iPad to read on the iPad).

Access codes -  many of our digital content is purchased through access codes provided by the publisher.  The access code is sold through our bookstore BNC K-12 Direct.  The publisher then provides a code, to the student to access the digital text.  These access codes are sent by US Mail or emailed to the student with the order.   Once they get the access code in the mail, they will have instructions of how to access the content.  This is a one year access code to the digital content.
