All Carmel Clay schools provide literacy instruction through a balanced literacy framework, uniquely defined at each level and grounded in evidence-based instructional practices. The interdependent components of the balanced literacy framework provide a rich, developmentally appropriate context for student engagement and learning at all levels in the broad areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening, and media literacy. The K-12 literacy curriculum is aligned with the Indiana Academic Standards for English language arts and reflects the overarching goal of college and career readiness, defined as the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to succeed in post-secondary education and economically-viable career opportunities.
