ADP is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education according to the PA Common Core State Standards, which are closely aligned with the National Common Core (about 85%), with a few adjustments made to better fit the needs of Pennsylvania students. The program is designed for students from Grade 9 to Grade 12.
Pennsylvania’s Core Standards offer a set of rigorous, high-quality academic expectations in English Language, Arts and Mathematics that all students should master by the end of each grade level. The PA Core Standards are robust and relevant to the real world and reflect the knowledge and skills our young people need to succeed in life after high school, in both post-secondary education and a globally competitive workforce.
The National Governors Association (NGA) and Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) worked in collaboration with state officials, teachers, parents and other interested parties across the country to develop model standards in math and English for states to consider using. These model standards are now referred to as Common Core.
