Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cahokia District Curriculum
The core academic experience seeks to integrate learning as much as possible so that students see the relevant connections between what they learn in class. Literacy in math and science is also emphasized and students are expected to learn how to both read and communicate in all their subject areas proficiently. To that end, non-fiction is increasingly emphasized and students have a wide range of writing assignments.
The physical education curriculum supports the health, wellness, and physical development of the district's students. Students also learn to make healthy decisions in a supportive and challenging environment and learn to build positive relationships and respect for themselves and each other in order to help build students’ self-esteem. The social-psychological strand of the physical education curriculum promotes positive relationships between students, as well as safety in physical activities and performance. Students learn how to work effectively with one another, including providing encouragement and positive feedback.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Early Decision
Early Decision (ED) applications can seem really appealing to many students, and they’ve grown in popularity because of this, but there can also be some drawbacks to them. ED applications are typically due November 1st. This can be a difficult deadline to hit when it comes to test scores, which might not be released until after the deadline. If a student already has test scores completed, then getting finished with an application early can be a relief, or it can be a challenge in itself. The biggest drawback many perceive to ED is that it is binding. This means that students sign a contract agreeing to attend this college if accepted. So, even if the students applies elsewhere and receives a better financial package, they are contractually obligated to attend this college. This can be a real problem for students with financial difficulties.
