Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carleton Place District Curriculum
Students receive a foundation by which they can understand the world in their classes in English, History, Science, and Math. They learn basics in language, literacy, history, and geography alongside the opportunities to investigate and experiment with scientific concepts in biology or earth science. Math enables problem-solving strategies and the ability to evaluate, relate, and represent data. These subjects and skills eventually are used in combination as students take on advanced, high skills, independent and interdisciplinary coursework.
When students enter secondary school, they are offered choices for the path they will take. Core academic courses are offered in Academic and Applied formats so that students develop either the theoretical understanding of subjects like algebra and biology, or the practical understanding of the same subjects. The learning objectives and expectations for both formats of core academics is the same, the instructional approaches and assignments will vary.

Carleton Place District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used as the overarching guide for teaching and learning in the local school districts. The curriculum is based upon the establishment of standards for learning, the provision of courses that prepare students for career goals, and that broadens students horizons in areas such as the arts, health and wellness, character and values education, cultural and global awareness. Technological skills are of particular importance, as are career and technical skills that are so valuable in many of today’s high demand occupations. With challenging learning experiences that are also relevant to today’s needs, both districts ensure that children have the tools required to be contributing members of the community.

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: College Visits
When deciding on which college is the best fit, the college visit can help parents and the student with this decision. Some of the things to consider doing on this day is to go on a campus tour and arrange an interview with the admission officer. If offered go to an informational session at the admission office and try to sit in on a class or two. Talking to professors in the area of the student’s major is helpful as is spending the night in the dorm with a current student. Other things to do that are less formal are to read the campus newspaper, eat in the cafeteria, look through the library and talk with students about why they chose this school and what they enjoy and don’t enjoy. On the way home, the parents and student can reflect on the day and see if they can visualize the student at that college. Then, on to another.
