This list contains a notation for every homeschool-related entity I have researched. Company and/or product names are shown according to the standard process for alphabetizing (i.e., if a title starts with A or The, the article is excluded for alphabetizing purposes, and names of individual people are listed by Last Name, First Name).
I strongly recommend carefully reading all notes when considering any of the products. But to summarize my definitions for clarity here:
Independent (IND) = These companies have not changed anything in regards to the CCS/NGSS/C3 and intend to remain independent of the initiative. They may or may not know of ways in which their materials happen to somehow match some aspects of the CCS/NGSS/C3, but any such connections are purely circumstantial and the providers do not endorse/promote the initiative.
Correlated (COR) = Each of these companies is correlated to - which is different than explicit alignment with - the CCS/NGSS/C3. Correlated providers did not make content changes in order to become "aligned" and, in many cases, have indicated concerns with the initiative. However, they do note (usually on their websites) where/how their materials - as written - correlate with aspects of the CCS/NGSS/C3. In other words, they promote where/how they match the CCS/NGSS/C3, but have not actually changed their content to align.
Ancillary Connections (ANC) = Each of these companies has an ancillary connection to the CCS/NGSS/C3. In most cases, the publishers have indicated a preference for maintaining educational independence from the CCS/NGSS/C3 initiative. However, their resources - usually "package programs" - do incorporate some books from explicitly aligned publishers and/or links to explicitly aligned material from other sources. Thus, a child using a resource with an ancillary connection as designed (i.e., without purposeful substitutions made by a parent) will be exposed to some CCS/NGSS/C3 content.
Explicitly Aligned (EXP) = These companies have indicated that they have chosen to explicitly align their materials with the CCS/NGSS/C3. Some have made relatively small changes, and others have completely overhauled their products - or were even initially created based on the initiative. However, in all cases, conscious content changes were made to accommodate the CCS/NGSS/C3.
Other Responses (OTH) = Each of these companies either needs more time to formulate an official response, has indicated that it will only share its position with individual parents, is not interested in sharing its view at all, or did not respond after many attempts to elicit a reply. Check the list itself for details about each entity.
Awaiting a Response (WAIT) = Each of these companies has been queried, but has not yet sent a reply.
Suppliers/Distributors (SUP) = Unless otherwise noted, these companies do not publish any of their own materials or actually produce curriculum and educational products. Instead, they merely sell resources from a wide variety of other outlets, serving as suppliers/distributors. As such, they have not been queried in regard to the CCS/NGSS/C3. And to my knowledge, they all sell a wide variety of materials – whether independent, correlated, ancillarily connected, or explicitly aligned – without regard to any resource's CCS/NGSS/C3 status.

|L.A.M.B. Company, The||ANC||The L.A.M.B. Company offers a curriculum that contains unaligned resources in most content areas. However, its recommended elementary math series (MCP) and its geography series (Pearson) come from CCS-aligned companies.|
|La Clase Divertida||OTH||La Clase Divertida opted not to provide information to me, indicating instead a desire to speak only with individual parents about its position relative to the CCS. It is worth noting, though, that La Clase Divertida “follows all ACTFL national standards” and that ACTFL has chosen to incorporate the CCS for English language arts into its foreign language instruction practices.|
|Ladd Family Adventure Series, The (Mott Media Publishing)||IND|
|Ladybird (Penguin)||COR||Ladybird Books is a Penguin imprint. And, though literature published by Penguin and its imprints will not itself be altered for the CCS, the company writes common core lesson plans.|
|Lamp and Quill International||IND|
|Lamp Post Homeschool||SUP|
|Lampstand Press||IND||Lampstand Press offers online classes using the Tapestry of Grace curriuclum, which is independent of the CCS.|

|Language Olympics (ILS Market)||IND|
Language Together advertises that its teacher's guide “provides vocabulary games, suggestions, and cultural activities that support World Readiness Standards for Learning Languages (ACTFL).” ACTFL has chosen to incorporate the CCS for English language arts into its foreign language instruction practices.
|Language Tree||IND||Most of what Language Tree currently offers is for preschool and elementary ages, and those resources have not been and will not be altered to comply with any aspect of the CCS. The company may decide to align its secondary materials, but it has no current plans to do so.|
|Language Tune-Up Kit||IND|
(The Crafty Classroom)
The Crafty Classroom, the parent company of Lapbook Lessons, was contacted multiple times over the course of several months and did not respond to any query. I cannot speculate as to why it has chosen not to reply, and I have no discernible way of knowing its position on the CCS/NGSS/C3.
|Latin in the Christian Trivium||IND
Most resources from Latin in the Christian Trivium are independent of the CCS. However, it offers one AP Latin class, and, while AP courses are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, it's worth noting that all AP courses must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. Thus, Latin in the Christian Trivium may have to make related changes for its AP course.
|Latin Road to English Grammar, The (Schola Publications)||IND|
|Laurel Springs School||IND
|Some Laurel Springs classes are Advanced Placement (AP), which has ancillary connections with the CCS. But non-AP Laurel Springs material is independent of the initiative.
In terms of the program's AP preparation courses, AP classes are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses. But it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, the AP classes offered by Laurel Springs will have to make related changes as well.
|Laurelwood Books||SUP||Though largely a supplier/distributor, Laurelwood Books also publishes books by Mary Ellen Tedrow (Little Yellow Book Study Guides and Patriotic Penmanship), which are listed separately in the database.|
|Layers of Learning||IND||Layers of Learning “is not common core aligned...has never been changed to fit with any government standards...[and has] no plans to align with common core ever.” Please note that the plans do “recommend many web resources throughout,” some of which might be connected to the CCS, but that such links are optional and supplementary to the overall program.|
(Essential Learning Institute)
|Leading God's Generation||IND|
|Leap Year Publishing||OTH||Leap Year Publishing has stated that it is not interested in sharing its position, either with me or with other individual parents.|
|LeapFrog||COR||LeapFrog has stated via Facebook that its “games are designed to reflect the latest Standards, including the Common Core State Standards, however we don’t design to those Standards alone.”|
|Learn & Master||IND|
|Learn and Do Unit Studies
|OTH||Learn and Do Unit Studies was contacted multiple times and did not respond to any query. I cannot speculate as to why it has chosen not to reply, and I have no discernible way of knowing its position on the CCS/NGSS.|

|Learn Math Fast||IND|
|Learn Our History

|Learnhive||EXP||Learnhive advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Learning A-Z||EXP||Learning A-Z advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Learning Ally||ANC||Learning Ally provides over 80,000 audiobooks, some of which are aligned to the CCS (i.e., Pearson math books). The program does not require the use of any particular titles so CCS-connected books can be avoided, but all books are matched to Lexile levels and Lexile is aligned with the CCS.|
|Learning by Grace
|ANC||Mimi Rothschild operates many online homeschooling programs – the ones listed here and hundreds of others – almost all of which provide nearly identical content. Materials written by Learning by Grace subsidiaries themselves are not aligned, and many of its partners are also independent of the CCS. However, it does incorporate resources from some CCS-aligned companies (i.e., BBC, Discovery Education, PBS, Reading Rainbow). Additinally, Learning by Grace also offers AP classes. And though AP classes are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, the AP classes offered by Learning by Grace will have to make related changes as well.|

|Learning for Life||EXP|
|Learning Games for Kids (Time4Learning)||COR||Learning Games for Kids is a subsidiary of Time4Learning, which is correlated to the CCS.|
|Learning Language Arts through Literature (Common Sense Press)||IND||Current Common Sense Press materials are not aligned. The company has not said that it won't align future products - thus, that remains a possibility – but there are no specific plans for that at this time.|
|Learning Links||EXP||Learning Links advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Learning Lynx Classroom||ANC||The creator of Learning Lynx Classroom has not altered anything to align and sees no reason to do so. However, the site utilizes free resources from a great number of other websites, some of which (i.e., PBSKids, Khan Academy, etc.) have aligned. She has detailed spreadsheets for each of her programs so a user can quickly see which outside websites are used; however, aligned links are not labeled as such so users seeking unaligned materials should check the spreadsheets carefully.|
|Learning Navigator, The (Gooru)||EXP||The Learning Navigator advertises that it is aligned to “Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts, Next Generation Science Standards [and] College, Career and Civic Life (C3) Social Studies State Standards.”|
|Learning Network, The||EXP||The Learning Network provides CCS-aligned lesson plans.|
|Learning Resources||COR||Learning Resources advertises its correlation to the CCS.|
|Learning Spot Library
|EXP||Learning Spot Library, a Carson-Dellosa subsidiary, advertises its alignment with the CCS.|

|LEP interactive (Lorenz)||EXP||LEP interactive's parent company advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Lerner Publishing Group||COR||Lerner advertises its correlations to the CCS and NGSS.|
|Lesson Plan Ladies||IND||Lesson Plan Ladies utilizes some books from companies that are now aligned with the CCS (i.e., Good Year Books, Gryphon House). However, its lesson plans were specifically written to earlier (pre-CCS) editions of the books (from the 1990s and early 2000s) and will not be updated to match with any aligned editions of the books that may be published going forward. Additionally, as Lesson Plan Ladies add plans for more grade/age levels, it will consciously work to avoid CCS-aligned resources.|
|Lesson Planet||EXP||Lesson Planet advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Let's Go Geography||IND|
|Let's Go Learn||EXP||Let's Go Learn, which advertises that its materials are aligned with the CCS, also offers reading and math assessments which are listed separately on the Standardized Tests list.|
|Let's Play Math||IND|
|Letters about Literature||EXP||
Letters about Literature advertises its alignment with the CCS.
|LeVar Burton Kids||EXP||
LeVar Burton Kids is the new iteration of Reading Rainbow, which Mr. Burton sought to relaunch via a Kickstarter campaign in 2014. At that time, promotional material indicated that the resource includes “supplemental materials aligned with Common Core standards,” and now the site advertises that it provides “standards aligned lessons.”
“...[T]he CCSS have very limited relevance for [the Lexercise] curricula.” But Lexercise has “referred to the CCSS (and especially the 'Foundational Concepts' in the English-Language Arts section written by Louisa Moats) as one of many data points when considering how to organize or differentiate something [in its] curricula.”
|Lexia (Rosetta Stone)||EXP||Lexia advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Lexile (MetaMetrics)||EXP||Lexile is an “endorsing partner” of the CCS and – through its parent company, MetaMetrics – was given grant money from the Gates Foundation for the purpose of aligning. In this case, that means that the Lexile system for measuring text complexity is the tool being used by the CCS for assessing the “level” of CCS-utilized reading resources.|
|Liahona Academy||IND||Liahona Academy incorporates material from DK and Kingfisher – both of which are correlated to though not explicitly aligned with (i.e., changed for) the CCS – at the elementary level. For math, the program uses the public school version of Saxon, but it only allows the 2004 (pre-CCS) edition.|
|Liberty & Independence Press||IND|
|Liberty First University
|Liberty Tutorials||IND||Liberty Tutorials is committed to using only pre-CCS editions of its various recommended texts. “If [those editions] stop being published [it hopes] that another publishing company would buy the rights of publication... [And] if that does not happen, [Liberty Tutorials would] probably try to purchase a set of used texts and lease them to [its] students each year.”|
|Liberty University Online Academy (LUOA)||ANC||Liberty Online Academy replaced the Alpha-Omega Ignitia program with its own curriculum in July 2014. The elementary curriculum (Ages 5-11/Grades K-5) requires the use of Reading Eggs, which is correlated to the CCS, and EducationCity, which is explicitly aligned. It is unclear whether or not CCS-connected resources are incorporated at the secondary level.|
|Liberty's Kids (DiC Entertainment)||IND||Liberty's Kids was produced in 2002-2003, well before the CCS came into existence, and has not been altered since its creation.|
|Libraries of Hope||IND|
|Library and Educational Services||SUP|
|Library Video Company||SUP|
|Life in the Roman Empire
|Life of Fred||IND|
|LIFE School||IND||LIFE School is committed to its program remaining independent of the CCS. It is worth noting that, though math is not integrated into the rest of the curriculum and, thus, other options could be subsituted, one recommended option, Math-U-See, is CCS-aligned (at the elementary level) and of the other two options, ALEKS and Saxon, the former has both independent and explicitly aligned options and the latter has independent and correlated versions.|
(Alpha Omega Publications)
|IND||Alpha Omega Publications has purposed to avoid using any CCS-related resources when making any revisions to any of its product lines, including LIFEPAC.|
|Lifeprint (ASLU)||IND||The creator of Lifeprint has not yet looked at the CCS. He may (or may not) alter his program for it once he examines the standards.|
|Lifestyle of Learning||IND|
|Lifetime Books and Gifts||SUP|
|LifeWay||SUP||Though primarily a supplier/distributor, LifeWay also publishes some of its own resources as B & H Publishing Group, which is listed separately on the database.|
|LightBot||IND||Lightbot may choose to align with the CCS in the future but has no immediate plans to do so.|
|Lighthouse Christian Academy||IND
|Lighthouse Christian Academy “is the official distance-learning provider for A.C.E. Ministries and exclusively uses the Accelerated Christian Education [ACE] curriculum for students in Levels K-12.” ACE offers foreign language study through Rosetta Stone, which is aligned to the CCS. Foreign language is an elective, not a program requirement, but it should be noted that Rosetta Stone is ACE's only option for foreign language.|
|Lighthouse Productions Science Solutions||SUP|
|Lincoln Christian Academy||IND||
Lincoln Christian Academy (LCA) uses Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) for its coursework. LCA only offers material written by ACE, not the explicitly aligned foreign language component (from Rosetta Stone) offered via ACE directly.
|Lincoln Learning Solutions||EXP||
Beginning in Fall 2015, Lincoln Learning Solutions advertises that “all [its language arts and math] content is aligned to the Common Core standards.”
|Lindamood-Bell||COR||Lindamood-Bell programs “develop the skills required for success with the Common Core.”|
|linguisystems (Pro-Ed)||COR||linguisystems “materials that relate to curriculum topics were developed to meet the highest quality published state learning standards, and by association are generally correlated with Common Core Standards.”|
LinkedIn Learning “[doesn't] have [the] specific functionality [to align with the CCS]” at this time, but may consider doing so in the future.
|Linney's Latin Class||IND|
(Florida Center for Instructional Technology)
|LITClub, The (Ali Dent)||IND||Because the author and publisher of The LITClub live in Texas, the CCS is not “an issue.” When asked if the program is aligned with the Texas-based CSCOPE initiative, the publisher answered, “We don't have a comment regarding that.”|
|Literactive||OTH||Literactive was contacted multiple times - at least seven over the course of several months – and did not respond to any query. I cannot speculate as to why it has chosen not to reply, and I have no discernible way of knowing its position on the CCS/NGSS .|
|Literacy Center Education Network||COR||The Literacy Center for Education Network “firmly believe[s] the CCS are badly written and not good for children.” However, ”to help teachers and parents have direct access to the CCS for Kindergarten so they can correlate our lessons, [it has] placed [the standards] on [its] site. [The Center believes it] can only help parents if [it] can arm them with accurate information.”|
|LiteracySoft||IND||LiteracySoft may choose to align with the CCS at some point in the future but has no immediate plans for doing so at this time.|
|Literary Lessons from the Lord of the Rings (Homescholar Books)||IND|
|Little Acorn Learning||IND|
|Little Bee Speech||EXP|
|Little Bits||COR||Little Bits advertises that its “lessons and projects can readily be tagged to the...NGSS...and Common Core.”|
|Little Box of Crochet||IND|
|Little Brown Library||COR||Little Brown has “develop[ed] two-page teachers’ guides that focus on how a book aligns with the [common core] standards.”|
|Little Flowers Girls' Club
|Little Giant Steps||IND|
|Little House Kindergarten||ANC||
Materials written by Little House Kindergarten itself are not aligned, as the program creator is strongly opposed to the CCS. At this time, the program does link to some resources from CCS-aligned companies (i.e., PBS Kids, Discovery Education, Shepherd Software) and to others that are correlated to CCS (i.e., ABCya, Time for Kids). However, the author is aiming to replace those resources with non-CCS ones.
|Little Loving Hands||WAIT|
|Little Pilgrims Theology||IND|
|Little Rabbit Trails||IND|
Little Saints was contacted multiple times over the course of several months and did not respond to any query. I cannot speculate as to why it has chosen not to reply, and I have no discernible way of knowing its position on the CCS/NGSS/C3.
|Little Women Hospitality Program (Behold Publications)||IND|
|Little Yellow Book Study Guides||IND|
|LitWits||COR||LitWits advertises that its kits “help meet” CCS “goals.”|
|Live & Learn Press||IND|
|Live Education!||COR||Live Education! has nsot changed anything about [its] curricula for Common Core, but [it does] “see the benefit” of pointing out where [its] curricula correlates with CCS. It also refers users to Public Waldorf Schools and the Common Core Standards, published by the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education.|
|Live Online Math||OTH||Live Online Math opted not to provide information to me, indicating instead a desire to speak only with individual parents about its position relative to the CCS/NGSS.|
|Living Books Curriculum
(Jim and Sheila Carroll)
|IND||The teaching guides and other materials written by Living Books Curriculum are not aligned, and the publisher notes that LBC has no interest in aligning any of its program. The curriculum does suggest two CCS-aligned math options (Math-U-See, Singapore). However, math is not actually built into the overall program, so choosing something other than what LBC suggests is easily possible without interfering with the rest of the program.|
|Living Books Lady
|IND||Living Books Lady is owned by the author of TruthQuest History, which is independent of the CCS.|
|Living Language (Random House)||IND|
|Though none is required, and non-CCS alternatives are also recommended, Living Math suggests the use of quite a few CCS-aligned resources (i.e., Everyday Math, Math-U-See, Right Start, Scholastic, etc.).|
|Lizard Point Geography||ANC||
Lizard Point develops content by studying public/government school department of education websites and the texts commonly used by those schools. All public school textbooks companies are aligned with the CCS/NGSS/C3; thus, Lizard Point's content will reflect that alignment.
|Logic (Roman Roads Media)||IND||Logic is written by the Curriculum Director of Romans Road Media, which is independent of the CCS.|
|Logic and Analysis Course
|Logic of English||IND COR||None of the Logic of English materials have been changed to align to the CCS. The publisher feels a call to help children in the schools learn to read and realizes she must “speak the language” of the schools in order to do so. Thus, the Foundations program (for K-2) has been correlated so the materials might be used in public schools, but the actual content of the program has not been changed. And all other Logic of English materials remain independent of the CCS.|
|Logos Bible Software (Faithlife)||IND||Logos Bible Software has no plans to incorporate the CCS. However, “most of [its] resources are Logos editions of existing books, so if those resources are updated, [Logos] would eventually do the same.”|
|Logos Press (Canon Press)||IND
|Logos Press offers only unaligned materials in almost every subject area. However, it does utilize Noeo for elementary science, and the Noeo kits include some aligned materials (i.e., DK). Additionally, Logos offers at least one Advanced Placement (AP) course. And, though AP is not directly covered by the CCS because AP courses are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, it's worth noting that all AP courses must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, Logos Press may have to make related changes as well.|
|Logos Science||IND||Logos Science advertises that its physics kit “is organized to follow [the] Bob Jones University Press high school physics curricula,” which is correlated to – but not changed for (explicitly aligned with) – the CCS. The physics kit is also “coordinated to work with many other popular Christian texts” so one can use the kit independent of BJU's curriculum. None of the other kits are designed to match any specific curriculum.|
|Lola & Lark||IND||
Lola & Lark “do[es] not align [its]products with the CCSS and do[es] not plan to go that route.” However, because “[its] products contain elements from several vendors which vary each month,” users interested in companies' CCS position should vet the providers of individual products within each month's Lola & Lark box.
|Lone Pine Classical School||IND
Most Lone Pine courses are independent of the CCS. However, it offers an AP Latin course, and while AP courses are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, it's worth noting that all AP courses must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. Thus, in order to maintain College Board approval, Lone Pine AP classes may have to make related changes as well.
|Lone Star Learning||COR||Lone Star Learning includes CCS correlations for many of its products.|
|Lonely Planet Kids||IND|
|Longevity Publishing||COR||Though Longevity Publishing has indicated concern about the CCS, it also advertises that its books support the initiative.|
|Longman (Pearson)||EXP||Longman is a Pearson product line; Pearson is a proponent of the CCS.|
|Lorenz Educational Press (Lorenz)||EXP||Lorenz Educational Press advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Lorenz||EXP||Lorenz advertises its alignment with the CCS.|
|Lost Classics||IND||The content of the Lost Classics books has not been changed to align with CCS. There is a possibility that Lost Classics may add information to teachers' guides only, for those interested in knowing how the books' material aligns. But the company hasn't decided if it will do that so they remain unaligned.|
|Love and Learning||IND|
|Love Says Go Academy||WAIT|
|Loyola Press||EXP||Loyola Press advertises its alignment with the CCS. The company clarified via a response to my query that it has changed content for the CCS; thus, its use of the word “correlations” actually means explicitly aligned.|
|Lucid Education (Derek Owens)||IND|
|Lukeion Project, The||IND
|Some Lukeion Project classes are Advanced Placement (AP), which has ancillary connections with the CCS. But non-AP Lukeion Project material is independent of the initiative.
In terms of the program's AP preparation courses, AP classes are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses. But it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, the AP classes offered by The Lukeion Project will have to make related changes as well.
LumaLearn explains that parents will need to query each individual instructor relative to the CCS/NGSS/C3: “Because LumaLearn is a marketplace...each individual instructor promotes their own online teaching business. Each instructor chooses their own curriculum (along with their own price and schedule) which would mean that individuals purchasing online courses would need to check to see which curriculum each instructor chose for their course and/or voice their concerns about potential common core standards with each instructor. LumaLearn does not have any say in any of the curriculums used by individual instructors.”
|lynda.com||IND||lynda.com does offer (under its Teacher Tips category) a few tutorials that explain aspects of the CCS. However, instructional materials in other content areas (i.e., subjects that K-12 students might typically access) have not been affected by the CCS.|
Lyrics2Learn advertises that it is “aligned with the Common Core Depth of Knowledge levels.”
