In general, private schools are not required to use the Common Core, however some aspects of their curricula might be affected if they receive federal funding for certain programs. To find out whether St. Margaret Mary School is affected by the Common Core, my advice would be to contact the school directly either via email or at 985-643-4612 . You can also find more information about the school's curriculum on their website.
To learn more about the Common Core in Louisiana, visit the Louisiana Department of Education's Common Core information page. More information is also available on Noodle's Common Core resource page.
