Acacia's curriculum is based on a 'Classical' philosophy of education which is described in detail on our curriculum page.  In the Early Years and Kindergarten we use Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar for early literacy and Singapore Math.  In grades 1-8 we have adopted the Core Knowledge scope and sequence.  For writing and history we use Lucy Calkins' approach to writing (The Art of Teaching Writing) and Susan Wise Bauer's history The Story of the World.  In grades 9 and 10 we use the Cambridge curriculum as to prepare our students for the IGCSEs.  To see more visit our curriculum page.
