Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gettysburg District Curriculum
All students in the Gettysburg Area School District receive teaching according to requirements set by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. This begins with a solid foundation in Core topics. Reading, Writing, Math and Science. Social studies is also a focus as well as technology and library education. Students learn these Core topics and are then able to take PSSA y Keystone exams which show whether they are learning at a proficient level or not. Armed it this knowledge, teachers are able to teach their students more effectively.
As is required in all Pennsylvania school districts, special needs students including Gifted students and English Language Learners are taught according to their ability and provided with necessary accommodations on assessments within the district. Supplemental and replacement material is given to assist learners in succeeding.

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 Importance of Exercise for Your Child
Schools require recess, health classes and/or Physical Education classes for their students. But what many people don’t consider is the importance of exercise as a lifestyle at home for your student. Exercise can take many forms, including dancing, sports, walking, gymnastics, or even some types of indoor games. The benefits of exercise are quite marked. Exercise causes your body to release endorphins which makes you more awake and happier. It also can curb the munchies which we often get when we are bored, but not truly hungry. Exercise helps with good blood circulation and energy levels. It may seem a bit counter-intuitive that using up energy produces more, but so it is. And this energy can transfer to the classroom. The good blood circulation and alertness can transfer to classroom performance as well. These are only a few positive consequences of regular exercise.
