Core Knowledge

Since its inception Fort Caspar Academy has used the Core Knowledge sequence as a foundation for our curriculum content. Core Knowledge is a philosophy that believes that students need to learn a broad body of knowledge in order to be successful as a reader, in academics as a whole and citizenship. Currently Fort Caspar Academy is taking another look at Core Knowledge to reintroduce our students, families and teachers to core knowledge and how it can support Common Core learning at Fort Caspar Academy for 2015 and beyond.

The Fort Caspar Academy Governing Council and school administration encourages you to take a look at some information on Core Knowledge, the best place to do that is at the Core Knowledge Foundation website:
