At Wayne Preparatory Academy we believe...
- All children will learn if we teach them carefully
- Careful instruction includes at its core teaching children at their instructional level
- Learning is a function of instruction, not a function of the learner
- Academic decisions should focus on the needs of our scholars, rather than the needs of adults
A Coherent, Cumulative, and Content-Specific CurriculumThe idea behind the Core Knowledge Sequence is simple and powerful: knowledge builds on knowledge. For the sake of academic excellence, greater fairness, and higher literacy, Core Knowledge provides a core curriculum that is coherent, cumulative, and content-specific in order to help children establish strong foundations of knowledge, grade by grade.
If all of our children are to be fully educated and participate equally in civic life, then we must provide each of them with the shared body of knowledge that makes literacy and communication possible. This concept, central to the Core Knowledge Foundation’s goal of excellence and equity in education, takes shape in the Sequence—a pioneering attempt to outline the specific core of shared knowledge that all children should learn in American schools.
