The Quorum curriculum is maintained by a curriculum committee of professional teachers and computer scientists. It is placed into four different tracks: 1) core, 2) visual, 3) audio, and 4) robotics. Pedagogically, all of these tracks have similar goals, mainly to teach various concepts in computer science, but they provide them through particular modalities. In each case, there are a set of core lessons that teach a fundamental computer science concept, and how to tangibly accomplish it in Quorum. From there, the various tracks provide fun and engaging lessons according to each modality.

While we have sectioned off the curriculum into tracks, teachers can and should use it however they think is best. In all cases, core computer science concepts are at the center of the curriculum. Students learn about variables, control structures, actions, classes, and more. These concepts are similar in any programming language available and are highly applicable to programming in college or the real-world.


Quorum's curriculum has been mapped by a committee of professionals to standards in the field. Notably, the individual mapping for each lesson is listed on each page and the tracks provide an overview. We have mapped the lessons to two standards: 1) Computer Science Principles and 2) Common Core. You can read about these standards below:

A significant majority programming languages and tools used across the United States are not accessible to people with disabilities. Quorum provides a wide variety of ways to learn, including online, offline, and through different modalities. We have gone to great lengths to make our curriculum and tools accessible and those with unique needs are welcome to get in touch and provide further feedback.
