Curriculum Associates

Curriculum Associates (CA), the creators of i-Ready, has been united around one common purpose: to make classrooms better places for teachers and students. For over 50 years, we've remained driven by this mission, introducing and then constantly improving innovative and exciting products that give every student the chance to succeed. We believe teachers are the essential glue between our programs and classroom success, so we strive to empower them with the tools and resources to accelerate student growth. Together with educators we're making equitable learning programs a reality—raising the bar and making it reachable for all.

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.

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.
