Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harvey District Curriculum
The curriculum attempts to provide challenging learning opportunities in a safe and supportive environment in which high expectations are established. The goal is for students to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become lifelong learners who are responsible and productively influence our world. Critical thought, decision making and problem solving are all major goals of the curriculum.
The curriculum is regularly assessed on academic, social, emotional, and behavioral levels to evaluate its effectiveness. The curriculum is based on international standards so that students will be competitive in an increasingly global world. The main focus of the curriculum is on analytical and persuasive writing and critical reading of complex, nonfiction texts as well as real-world applications of mathematics and science lessons. Students focus on foundational topics which allows them to build on key concepts in their post-secondary education.

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
Paying for college is becoming increasingly difficult with skyrocketing costs. The cost of tuition isn’t even the real cost, many times, as there are often as many as another $10,000 worth of fees and costs. For many students this is prohibitive, and they must limit themselves to state schools and community colleges. But don’t despair! Most private colleges offer financial aid, and a competitive student can often receive enough aid to make the cost of attending a private college equivalent to attending a public one. Many of the more expensive colleges offer a large percentage of students a small aid award across the board, maybe a few thousand dollars. Competitive students often are eligible for merit scholarships, which can be substantial. These are often awarded by the colleges without the student having to apply for them, but always check the college’s website and even contact their financial aid department to make sure. Similarly, there may be other awards and scholarships depending on the background of the student. The starting place for financial aid is really the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
