Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrisburg District Curriculum
The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards in order to provide a comprehensive, equal education to all students. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each school year in each their different subjects. The expectations include the different skills, concepts and knowledge, and critical thinking perspectives that students need to understand the subject. In all subjects, analytic problem-solving, communication and literacy skills are emphasized.
The high school experience introduces more rigor and options for students. They have college-level courses available to them as well as career-related electives and technical programs. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and teachers are given the freedom to craft their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of their students, whether that be to provide remedial work to enable a student to catch up to grade level or to provide advanced work to keep a student who is working beyond grade level challenged.

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: Restricted Early Action
Restricted Early Action is a rare form of Early Action application. It’s early, which means the deadline comes sooner than most applications, usually around November 15. It’s also restricted, which means that students are only allowed to apply to that one college. When they receive a response, they aren’t bound to attend, and they can then apply elsewhere, but, of course, most students who apply Restricted Early Action do commit to that college, unless they don’t get a favorable financial aid package, or something like that. Most colleges who practice Restricted Early Action will factor in financial issues to their decision, though, so a student with heavy need might not be accepted, if the college won’t be able to meet that need. Some may, though, and because it is an early application, and because of it being restricted and therefore demonstrating loyalty to the college, colleges tend to favor these early applicants.
