Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Centre Wellington District Curriculum
As students master the various areas of problem-solving and mathematic thought in numeracy, algebraic operations, geometric functions and mathematical relationships, they are also establishing core competencies which will be used in higher learning or career prospects. They learn how to plot and represent mathematic information and to create models by which to predict the outcome of events. Students also learn about principles of design and how math is used in technology applications.
In English, students literacy skills are honed to the point where they are able to analyze texts, evaluate points of view, and gain cultural understanding from literature and non-fiction. The curriculum calls for students to use reading as a way to learn about the world and themselves, and to be able to ask questions of the text and learn how to seek out additional information. Comprehension strategies that help students determine the meaning of what they read are also emphasized; students use text features and background knowledge to aid their understanding of the purpose of each text. By doing so, students develop the skills to find and evaluate various texts and sources of information.

Centre Wellington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Centre Wellington, the schools follow the Ontario Curriculum as the guideline for teaching and learning within all subject areas. This curriculum uses a progression model for teaching whereby students gain foundational skills within the learning areas during elementary school and moves students towards a more in-depth approach during secondary school. The curricular goals are designed so that each subject has an impact on overall learning and prepares students for their future as well-educated young people.
Keeping Informed: Recent Centre Wellington Educational News
- Student Access - The Student Success Program Initiatives have been a strong component of the schools offerings at the secondary level, and Upper Grand has extended the learning potential for students in grades 7 and 8 as well. By encompassing younger students in this program, the middle school years are used more wisely so that students are fully prepared for the academics ahead of them.
- Sister School - The Kisaruni All Girls Secondary School in Kenya is a sister school to one of the secondary schools in the district. Recently, students were offered the chance to meet with two Kenyan Masai warriors who came to Ontario to visit. This opportunity for cross-cultural exchange gives students the chance to develop a deep cultural awareness.
- Aboriginal Education - Students attending the Wellington Catholic District Schools are offered a comprehensive education in Aboriginal history, culture and languages as part of their core academic experience. The programs have been designed in collaboration with aboriginal educators who recognize the areas where curricular tie-ins may increase interdisciplinary learning.
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: Ways Parents Can Become Involved in the Schools
There are many ways in which a parent can become involved in the schools, which is important because families can get very busy and it is not always easy to find the time for significant involvement. There are always fundraisers that serve causes like classroom enrichment or field trip funds, and there are also opportunities to work on a fundraiser, if time permits. Many schools have advisory councils that guide policy on issues like Special Education, Curriculum, Facilities and other areas. These often meet in the evenings, allowing for working parents to join in on an educational decision-making venture. Time spent in a classroom is also a great way to get involved. It could be just once a week for a short time, but the help is substantial for the teacher, and always worth the while.
