Common Core

Everyone with children has heard the term "Common Core" recently. But what exactly does that mean?

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent and clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
 
Along with the Common Core, St. Albert the Great guides its curriculum around the standards set forth by the Archdiocese of Chicago.
