During the school year, RMAE focuses on character education across all grade levels, with a goal of cultivating character through the promotion of basic moral, civic, and intellectual virtues.
RMAE Core Virtues represent common ground, and do not include controversial social or political agendas. Coupled with the Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence, we are able to put something solid, sequenced, and specific in the hands of our preschool teachers.
The Preschool at Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen is a Friends of Core Knowledge preschool. Our preschool incorporates an explicit set of competencies to strive for the premise that knowledge builds on knowledge.
There is no guessing with Core Knowledge; it challenges our preschoolers while maintaining developmentally appropriate practices with pre-defined goals and teacher accountability. Coupled with Core Values, our curriculum benefits preschoolers – these benefits continue through a child’s academic journey.
