Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Draper District Curriculum
In Math, the basis for the advanced study of algebra, geometry, and statistics is begun in elementary school, where students learn these fields through experience of using manipulatives (physical objects to help them understand math problems), bar charts, and pictures. Students are asked to deal with specific problems that can be applied directly, rather than using abstract principles.
Students at all high schools in the Canyons School District have three options for their high school diploma, all of which meet the Utah Core Requirements. They can earn a regular diploma, which meets state standards and prepares them for a career, an advanced diploma, which includes two years of study of a foreign language and is designed for students who intend to attend college, or an honors diploma, which adds required minimum ACT scores to the advanced diploma (with all students having their ACT testing paid for by the district).

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: Scholarship Opportunities
A college degree is more important now than ever for success in the workplace. At the same time, college is getting more and more expensive. However, there are lots of scholarship opportunities available for students who look for them. Many are tied to academic achievement, particularly scores on the SAT, ACT, or other tests. Others are linked to community service, citizenship, and extracurricular achievements such as athletics or the arts. What’s important in looking for a scholarship is to pinpoint what makes you special, and to look for scholarships that want to fund students like you. Spending time researching scholarships will pay off, in reduced loan debt for the future!
