Private School Markets Itself as "Cure for Common Core"

Allendale Columbia uses discontent with Common Core as recruiting tool.
Allendale Columbia's ad campaign call itself the "Cure for the Common Core" has gotten national attention, having been written up in the Huffington Post.

The private school in Pittsford has 378 students from nursery school to 12th grade. The teachers do not teach Common Core and students do not take standardized state tests. The high school students do take Advanced Placement classes and SATs.

Since the campaign started, applications to Allendale Columbia are up 40 percent. There is an open house on April 29 at 9 a.m. Not all families can afford Allendale Columbia, but some students could be eligible for financial assistance.
