Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cheraw District Curriculum
Chesterfield County School District begins instruction with the foundational knowledge needed to grow in each subject. In Math, the focus is on numeracy, operational ability, mental math, patterns and relationships, shapes and measurement, and quantitative data. In English, the fundamentals of reading comprehension and writing skills are developed. Vocabulary and sight word recognition are emphasized. Fluency is also a key goal and students are expected to read a wide range of books and think critically about them.
Chesterfield’s high schools offer several levels and types of courses, including honors, college prep, AP, dual credit, and Career and Technology Education (CATE) courses. Students are encouraged to take CATE courses that align with careers they may be interested in pursuing in the future. Extracurricular organizations also provide students with the chance to attend academic competitions or conferences, work on community service projects, develop artistic or performance abilities, or work on their journalistic or creative writing skills.

Keeping Informed: Recent Cheraw Educational News
- Law Enforcement Program Comes to Chesterfield - Chesterfield High School’s Career and Technology Education department announced the school would be adding a Law Enforcement career cluster. Mr. Tim Perry, whose 29 years of experience include time as a state trooper, judicial investigator, and sheriff’s office investigator, will lead the program, which prepares students for entry-level positions in local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies as well as private security. Mr. Kip Kiser recently donated $500 to the program, as he believes it is even more important for law enforcement officers to be equipped with knowledge than physical strength.
- Chesterfield County Welcomes 45 New Teachers - Prior to the start of the new school year, Chesterfield County School District held a New Teacher Orientation for 45 teachers who were new to the district—30 of whom were new to the profession. The group represented all grade level bands and included classroom teachers, technology specialists, and guidance counselors. The teachers were shown a video entitled “Kid President’s Pep Talk to Teachers and Students,” which encouraged them to be “awesome” and caring educators and to continually grow on a professional 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.
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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Alphabet Books for More Advanced Learners
Alphabet books may be thought to be extremely simple and designed for very young learners, but some books present the alphabet in a more complex and different manner. For example, the book “Antics!” is full of rich language, portraying the alphabet through the ants’ actions. “When Royals Wore Ruffles: A Funny & Fashionable Alphabet” uses the alphabet to introduce students to more sophisticated words. This is a particularly great book for girls, as they receive a lesson on fashion through the ages. Finally, “The Z Was Zapped”, written and illustrated by Chris van Allsburgh, presents the alphabet in a very unique way. Each “act” describes what happens to each letter in the form of a play.
