Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Perry District Curriculum
The curriculum standards are implemented in many schools across Georgia. Developed by education experts, teachers and parents, the intention of the CCGPS is to make learning rigorous and relevant and applicable through problem-based teaching. Students are provided with skills, content and knowledge to be college and career ready. Informational technical texts and increasing text complexity are used in core subjects to increase students cross-disciplinary literacy skills.
By seventh and eighth graders apply their prior knowledge of story or literary elements to the study of poetry and its use of imagery. Students learn to write essays that are properly organized and grammatically correct. Eighth graders learn to define and recognize themes in literature. Parent resources are available at the district website with links to help in further understanding what your child is learning at every grade level.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Starting Early
It’s never too early to instill work skills into your child’s activities. Teaching and learning in the classroom integrates skills necessary for work, even in the elementary grades. Children already use skills such as asking questions, responding to a question or an adult’s comment or explaining something to someone. Take Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. Although not the intention to only make money, these organizations encourage and engage their “scouts” to participate in working situations. Skills such as responsibility, organization, management, approaching and “making a sale,” even ambition are part of selling Girl Scout cookies or the Boy Scout’s popcorn campaign. Your child can learn those same skills outside of the classroom as well: through a lemonade stand, washing cars, walking the neighbor’s pet or mowing yards. With your help, your child will learn “how to work” and the professional and personal skills needed to get and keep work. Choosing an activity they like will help this learning moment; children and teens won’t even know they’re learning and applying skills they’ll need when they are much older.
