Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Covington District Curriculum
Middle school learning is an integration of subjects and the relationship of newly acquired knowledge to everyday life. Teaching toward middle school students focuses on the whole child, meeting the needs of the social, emotional and intellectual development these age groups are experiencing. There are a great variety of extracurricular activities for students to become involved in and character education goals are actively met through team-building, collaboration, and social awareness efforts.
High school learning emphasizes preparing for future success. Students in grades nine through twelve are provided with challenging coursework, opportunities for creative and critical thinking, and elective that focuses on career interests. Students are guided toward their post-secondary goals through rigorous academics and career-related courses designed for work in the 21st century. High tech courses are being developed and implemented so that students have skills in programming, design, and web technologies.

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: The Topic of College
The last years of high school not only involve completing coursework for graduation requirements but also deciding whether your teen is ready for college. Some teens get excited about college, looking at and applying to many, other teens hesitate or already know that college may not be for them at that moment. As a parent, you want the best for your teen. Part of that is realizing your teen’s social, emotional and intellectual development. They may not be prepared for moving away, the college environment or expectations of college coursework. Or may be fine in at a smaller college, not a larger university. By the time the topic of college becomes more frequent, you have probably had multiple discussions with teachers about your teen’s academic and overall growth. Consider these suggestions as well as those from guidance counselors or employers as you and your teen decide on college and which college may be best.
