Our Values

On a Mission to Improve Teaching and Learning

We were founded by a group of passionate educators with a mission to make classrooms better places. For more than 50 years we have held tight to that mission, ensuring every decision and tool we make supports the educators and students we serve. Our people-first commitment to service extends to our stakeholders at every level, from the passionate employees within our organization to the communities in which we operate.

Our Values Guide Every Action

We hold ourselves to high standards, with six simple yet powerful values guiding our teams’ decisions and interactions:

  1. We measure ourselves by the impact we have on teachers and students, not by the size of our pocketbooks.
  2. The quality of our service is as important as the quality of our products.
  3. We embrace all and are committed to building an inclusive, diverse culture.
  4. We lead with integrity in everything we do, ensuring every action by every employee every day could appear on a newspaper cover.
  5. We say it like it is, with grace.
  6. We are high in confidence, but we keep our egos low.

We Embrace All: Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Curriculum Associates, we believe that inequitable policies and practices often lead to inequitable results, and we are doing the work to drive equitable opportunities and outcomes for our staff, diversify our team, and build a culture of inclusivity and belonging at every level of the company. This means acknowledging that culture and cultural diversity can incorporate a variety of factors, including but not limited to age, disability, ethnicity, gender identity (encompassing gender expression), national origin (encompassing related aspects e.g., ancestry, culture, language, dialect, and citizenship), race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation.
