A National Community Committed to Educational Excellence and Equity

Although schools in the Core Knowledge community are diverse, they are united by their commitment to use the Core Knowledge Sequence to ensure that all students receive a rigorous education.

During the 2013–2014 school year there were 1,260 schools (ranging from preschool through eighth grade) in 46 states and the District of Columbia using all or part of the Core Knowledge Sequence. Thousands more schools use Core Knowledge materials, but the community includes only those schools that send their profile form to the Foundation annually.
