Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Did ACA adopt the Common Core Standards?
A: ACA believes in the need for standards in education, however we did not adopt the Common Core Standards for our benchmark. At ACA, we hold our standards much higher than where the CCS are set.
Q: Does ACA participate in the PSSA (Keystone) standardized testing?
A: ACA does not participate in the PSSA (Keystone) state exams. We utilize the TerraNova testing for bench-marking. These tests are are less stressful than the PSSA tests and consume far less classroom time.
