STRIDE Academy teaches Core Knowledge
to ensure students receive a strong foundation of the basics they need to be strong, productive citizens. STRIDE Academy is among a growing number of schools that are seeing measurable results by using the leading Core Knowledge curriculum.
The curriculum focuses on teaching building cultural literacy and progressing through a solid and specific set of knowledge each year. Core Knowledge, developed by University of Virginia Professor E. D. Hirsch and two groups of teachers, has gone from a philosophy of the need for cultural literacy to a growing phenomenon that has been widely accepted by public, private and charter schools nationwide.

STRIDE goes beyond the basics to also teach its students to be strong leaders in the classrooms, families and communities. STRIDE integrates the Second Step
leadership development and 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens
by Stephen and Sean Covey into its curriculum. Students also complete at least two service learning projects each year.
