Cather Core Academy curriculum is wonderful. My child is not only learning but is retaining the information taught. The children are exposed to different artists and composers as well as geography and social studies. I would like to see more computer skills and foreign language taught at Cather for all the students. The Core teachers are great and communicate with us on a regular basis.

Cather Core Academy is the best kept secret in the Millard School District (well, it was until now!). This program offers very structured learning. All students are expected to sit at a desk for their learning (as opposed to moving from one station to the next for learning). The phonogram program is simply amazing and it helped my kindergartner to start reading this month. Even if he doesn t know a particular word, he can use the phonograms and sound it out. The kindergarten program also includes spelling tests on 15 new words each week. The program even has the kindergartners starting to do basic diagramming of sentences. You can expect homework 3 nights a week, even in kindergarten. In addition to the basic Core areas, my kindergartner has also had special units on Strategies, Music, PE, Art, and Technology. The Core program does require/expect great amounts parental involvement. It s awesome!
