About Us

Established in 2006, ReferencePoint Press is an independent educational publishing house focused on high-quality series nonfiction for grades 6-12 learners and researchers. Our experienced editorial team strives to create clear, accessible and thoroughly researched books and digital content. More than just a source of raw "information" each ReferencePoint title serves as a foundation for student assignments and learning by providing relevant background, context, perspective, statistics, and supporting images on current and historical topics. This disciplined editorial focus and mission has built our reputation as a go-to source for libraries and classrooms serving young adults. Our titles consistently receive favorable reviews from authoritative library and education journals and are included in many core collection recommendations.

ReferencePoint titles include pedagogical features that support grades 6–12 Common Core State Standards such as source notes, primary sources, multiple points of view, statistical illustrations and maps.  Our focus is on core curriculum areas including current issues, social studies, history and health/science. We publish about 100 new titles annually and offer both print and eBook versions for all of our 800+ titles.

In 2019 we introduced our new imprint, BrightPoint Press, which publishes quality nonfiction for struggling readers on important teen topics, such as careers, current issues, and health. While designed for teens, the text is written at a 3rd–4th grade reading level (Lexile 415–760). These titles support the increasing demand for quality nonfiction that is accessible to struggling and ELL upper level grade readers. 

ReferencePoint books and eBooks are available direct from us and from distributors everywhere. If you have any questions regarding our books or how to purchase them please contact us at 888-479-6436 or by email at Our staff is always happy to help. We look forward to hearing from you.
