Statement on Common Core State Standards

The Diocese of Manchester is not planning to adopt formally or to require its schools to develop its curriculum solely on the basis of the Common Core State Standards. Our principals and teachers, however, are expected to be cognizant of all such standards and their impact for several reasons, two of which are:

  1. that the content of many standard textbooks takes the CCSS into account and
  2. that many students in our grammar schools go on to public high schools and we have an obligation to make sure they are prepared for that transition.

Our principals and teachers are intent on providing the best education they can for our students and thus they draw on a variety of resources and programs in order to fashion a curriculum that best serves our students in the context of our schools and their mission in the Catholic Church.
