The curriculum of the CPA is based on the Common Core Standards for the grade in question. Instructors are trained and experienced early-childhood educators who are dedicated to teaching the students in the CPA cohort. Their focus is on supporting the students to realize their full potential. Tutorial plans are developed and delivered with the goal of supporting the instruction and curriculum followed by the children's home schools. As part of this design, tutorial instructors endeavor to challenge students with material they may encounter in the coming term or academic year. These stretch goals help identify areas where students may need additional support. Instructors also provide ongoing support as students begin to prepare for upcoming standardized tests. 

The following subjects are covered in the standard CPA tutorial plan:

  • English Language Arts:
    • This is based on the English Language Arts curriculum defined by the widely adopted Common Core Standard for English Language Arts.
    • Our English language blocks run for one hour, five times a week.
    • The focus is on providing revision and tutorial support for students so that they concretize the concepts learned during the school year, and improve their mastery of the language through reading, writing and grade-appropriate exercises.
    • The goal is to support students to become well equipped to pass their mandated language proficiency tests.
  •  Mathematics:
    • This also is based on the mathematics curriculum defined by the widely adopted Common Core Standard for Mathematics.
    • Our mathematics blocks run for one hour, five times a week. 
    • Our focus is on providing revision and tutorial support for students so that they concretize the concepts learned during the school year, and improve their mastery of key mathematical concepts as demonstrated by completion of grade-appropriate exercises.
  • Science:
    • This is based on the science curriculum specified by the relevant state educational guidelines. Even though there is a lot of commonality across jurisdictions, every effort is made to ensure that critical concepts and areas of pre-emphasis mandated by a state are reflected in the tutorial experience. This is another reason why it is important for students in CPA to come from the same or similar jurisdictions.
