Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cornwall District Curriculum
The Science curriculum establishes a base of knowledge in content and scientific processes, and then begins to specialize units of inquiry so that students are able to do advanced study in them. In tenth grade, students learn about Sustainability of Ecosystems, Earth and Space Science, Chemical Reactions, and Motion. Students will study how matter cycles through biotic and abiotic components of an ecosystem by tracking carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. Using such information, they also analyse the impact of external factors on an ecosystem.
The Physical Science unit of inquiry into Motion introduces students to the relationship among displacement, time, and velocity and how to represent these values graphically and mathematically. They also learn how to represent and analyse the relationship between velocity, time, and acceleration. In the Chemical Reactions unit of inquiry, students start by learning how to write formulas for some common molecular compounds and become able to show how factors such as heat, concentration, light, and surface area can affect chemical reactions.

Cornwall District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in Cornwall’s schools was developed by the PEI Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture and sets out frameworks for the learning expectations in each subject. The frameworks contain General, Key-Stage, and Specific Curriculum Outcomes that describe the broad and specific goals for learning. Students are also assessed on their learning to make sure they are achieving the goals set out in the core subjects. They are assessed in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Grade 3, 6 and 9 and also take assessments that show how PEI students are doing in comparison to students across Canada and the world.

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: Gap Year Programmes
Many students choose to take a Gap Year between high school and college and they are used to serve a variety of different purposes. Some students choose to use the time to work and earn money for college. This is a great choice because it also gives students an idea about what the professional world is like and how they will use their college experience to maximize it. Other students may want to do a year or travel or community service, or combine the two and do charitable work in a developing nation. This is a great option for community minded students who want to connect to the world around them and then use those connections to deepen their college experience.
