Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
All students take required core classes from grades Kindergarten through twelve. These core classes include Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science. Starting with the basic building blocks in each of these areas, elementary students learn the basics of reading, writing and numbers to facilitate a solid grounding whereby they can then build deeper knowledge and understanding in each subject.
Columbia Borough School District also teaches Specialty Subjects to their students in all grade levels. These are designed to complement and round out the education their students are receiving according to the standards set by the state. These courses include Art, Library Science, Music, and Physical Education for elementary and middle school students. High school students have more variety to choose from in art, music and technical education as well as physical education. They are also offered, at the high school level, World Language courses in both French and Spanish.

Columbia District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Columbia Borough School District takes the learning of their students very seriously. As such, they have curriculum leaders for various subjects and grade levels who meet to discuss necessary changes in the curriculum as needs come up. They also address subject areas every six years to ensure that all curriculum is in line with state standards and the Standards Aligned System prescribed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. By the time students reach high school, they are offered advanced and varied courses in each core subject as well as electives which can complement these core subjects.

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 Help your Child Succeed in Science
Science can be an intimidating subject for any child or parent. But you can help your child succeed in science. First, remember that you do not have to have all the answers. Keep a positive attitude about learning and, when your child has a question that you don’t know the answer to, research together to find a satisfactory solution. This could include utilizing your local library, looking on reputable websites, or going to the child’s teacher or tutor for more information. Science can be fun and part of everyday life. You can help your child to see this when watching, for example, the weather channel or the Discovery Channel. You can help your child gain interest in science by introducing fun activities which relate to it. I remember having an acid rain testing kit when I was young. I thought it was great fun to get outside and find out how acidic, or basic, different liquids were. These types of activities as well as others can help your child succeed in science.
