Core Knowledge Curriculum

Core Knowledge is a nationally recognized curriculum, traditional in nature that instills a broad, solid foundation of knowledge and cultural literacy in all students. Students are taught in specific sequences starting in Kindergarten; each unit in each subject builds on previously learned information.

Detailed information about Core Knowledge can be found at www.coreknowledge.org or in the series of books written by E.D. Hirsch, Jr.; the elementary library has this series available for parents to check out.

Our high school program builds on a strong foundation of the K-8 Core Knowledge Curriculum. We have designed a challenging program that will help prepare students for acceptance and achievement in colleges, universities, or other post-secondary programs. Frontier Academy’s graduation requirements exceed the state requirements and surpass the expectations of most other high schools, especially in core areas such as English, Mathematics, and Science. Our curriculum exceeds the 2010 Colorado Commission of Higher Education admission requirements.
