Core Curriculum Matters at What Will They Learn?® “A” Schools

A What Will They Learn?® Production in Association with Patrick Henry College
July 7, 2023

Students, alumni, faculty, and administrators from Patrick Henry College, with a model “A”-grade core curriculum in ACTA’s What Will They Learn?® initiative, explain the value of their academic experience. What they’ve found: the core immerses students and faculty in a centuries-long dialogue of the ideas and traditions at the foundation of this nation; students’ formation from the core has prepared them to launch into any career; employers notice how well-prepared alumni are; what matters isn’t an institution’s looks or wealth, but the richness of the education it provides!


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
