Common Core Alignment

“The quality of programs directly connects to and enhances our essential curriculum. Teachers not only embraced the program, they immediately asked to expand its use. This is a testament to the quality of the product, as well as the teacher-friendly materials and training.”
—School System Administrator, Frederick County Public Schools


Common Core. Uncommonly Simple.

For nearly a century, JA has been preparing students for college and a rapidly changing workplace. JA continues this commitment by aligning and correlating our programs with Maryland’s College and Career-Ready Standards, as well as the state requirements for financial literacy education.
