Are you meaning the Core *Knowledge* sequence?  I've never heard of "core" used as a curriculum other than that.  Typically it means the core *classes*.

Ah, I have seen that - but didn't recall the name.  To me it wouldn't be valuable at all.  I would not want to trust another person to select curriculum for my son.  Nor would I want to pay them to do it.  That's really all this is - someone paid to put together an all-in-one school-in-a-box, or an eclectic mix for your child.  It would be hard to say, as a user, how it goes, as it appears each package of curriculum is customized.  But perhaps someone here has used their services.

I'd much rather pay the money to attend a HS'ing convention and pick and choose items for myself.
