Huntington Learning Center Curriculum Now Fully Aligned with Common Core State Standards

Huntington Learning Center Curriculum Now Fully Aligned with Common Core State Standards 

Throughout our 36-year history, Huntington Learning Center has stayed in tune with the needs of our students. As American education has evolved and changed—from standards-based education reform evolving throughout the 1980s and 1990s to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 making waves in the 2000s—Huntington has adjusted its curriculum as appropriate in order to ensure our students receive the tutoring support they need to be successful students.

Today, Huntington remains at the forefront when it comes to supplemental education.  Three years ago, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Initiative was introduced, and those standards have since been adopted and implemented by schools and school districts in most states.  We too have aligned with the CCSS in all of our academic, SAT/ACT and other preparatory programs. And in December 2013, our curriculum implementation was complete.

What does this mean for the families we serve? It means that Huntington stands ready to help students meet the challenges of these new, more rigorous educational standards. As schools’ curricula and assessment testing evolve, students will need help that extends beyond the type of support they may have needed previously. Huntington is prepared and excited to embrace those challenges together.

Here are several ways Huntington has adjusted its curriculum and operations to prepare for tutoring and test prep in the Common Core era: 

  • Updated math curriculum and skill matrices that adhere to CCSS mathematics standards.
  • Updated reading/writing curriculum that adheres to CCSS English-language arts standards.
  • Trained Huntington teachers who understand how the Common Core State Standards impact teachers, schools and teaching strategies and are prepared to teach to the more rigorous standards.
  • A refined focus on college and career readiness throughout Huntington’s programs.
  • A greater emphasis throughout Huntington’s programs on key CCSS objectives, including better problem solving, enhanced critical thinking, etc.

As always, Huntington is dedicated to delivering the best possible education to our students —and today, that means helping students navigate the significant changes taking place at their schools and in their classrooms.
