A curriculum is the scope and sequence of topics and activities that comprise a school's instructional program. It defines the knowledge and skills that students should learn at each grade level, organized into subject matter categories such as language arts and mathematics.

The purpose of a curriculum is to provide an overview of educational aims, course content and instruction strategies for student learning. A good curriculum guides the flow of learning experiences for each student and outlines specific objectives teachers can strive to meet in order to help students gain the competencies needed to be successful adults.
