Private Schools Embrace Common Core

Across Acadiana, it appears that few private schools have embraced common core.

When Louisiana began using common core standards this fall, public schools had no choice but to implement them, but since private schools are free from state oversight they choose whether or not to implement Common Core.

Some schools have taken the standards into account creating a curriculum that strives for academic excellence and spiritual growth while others are taking a wait-and-see approach. One school – Teurlings Catholic – is using common core, largely because it aligns with its existing curriculum.
