Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Colonial Park District Curriculum
At the high school level, students can individualize their learning plan far more to focus on specific individual goals that students may have. For example, many science courses are offered with both basic level, and advanced level courses. Students can choose to take honors courses in Biology and Chemistry. Astronomy, Meteorology, and Geology is offered as a science option as well as Human Influences on the Environment. These are in addition to other science courses taught to engage students in the world around them.
High school students are also required to fulfill language arts requirements, technology courses, PE, arts, and others. Art classes in the Central Dauphin School District are varied as well offering basic Drawing and Painting courses, 3D art, photography, and more. With these and other course offerings in many subjects, students can get the best education for their needs and to prepare them for their post-secondary goals.

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: How to Study for SATs and ACTs
Most college bound students will take the SAT and/or ACT at least once during high school. With so much riding on this test, how can you prepare effectively? The College Board website has many resources, some of which are free and some which cost money. Check out the free resources first. Your school or community library may have SAT or ACT preparation books from past years which could be well worth taking a look at. There is a sense in which you can’t be ready for an SAT or ACT as you can be a math test, for example, because the test is designed to evaluate how much you know rather than that you know specific information. For this reason, understanding the basic structure of the tests and practicing thinking as the SAT or ACT test phrases questions will help. Ultimately remember that the score is just a number and, while it may affect you, it should not make or break you. Remembering this will help you relax more on test day.
