The following are not a full listing of all curriculums available to homeschoolers, but a list of some used by Alabama homeschool parents to he help if you are feeling overwhelmed with options. These curriculum’s run the gamut. They are religious, and secular, they are right leaning and left, they are common core aligned and NOT Common core aligned.
