Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Effingham District Curriculum
Effingham Community Schools’ mission is to provide a quality, competitive education to students so that they thrive, not only academically but socially and emotionally, as well as physically. All students are given opportunities to succeed, regardless of economic background, location, gender, race, learning needs, or other factors. Interventions are offered when necessary. The school prides itself on maintaining rigorous academic standards while promoting accountability and personal responsibility, and it also strives to maintain a safe, nurturing environment.
It is hoped that students who are challenged academically will begin to take responsibility for learning and develop a love of learning that will carry them through the rest of their lives. This will also lead to engagement in the world around them, so that they become responsible citizens who are equipped to improve their own lives as well as their communities.

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: Financial Aid
The financial aid application process begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, which can be filled out online beginning in January. Colleges then base their awards packages on the information they receive from the FAFSA. Competitive students may also be offered scholarships, called merit scholarships. These are usually determined by the colleges and don’t require applications, but it’s a good idea to contact financial aid departments to make sure you aren’t missing any opportunities. Similarly, there may be scholarships based on other demographic factors that students may not be aware of (and that colleges may not be aware students qualify for) so, again, be sure to contact financial aid departments for advice. Most colleges will have a student aid package calculator on their website which can help determine the value of a student’s award; likewise, they will have information on aid such as scholarships and grants a student might be eligible for.
