Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Herrin District Curriculum
By holding students to high standards, by encouraging them to organize their time and planning and maintain a solid work ethic, the school believes it can help students realize they can achieve their full potential, not only in their personal lives, but also in their professional lives. All Kindergarten through eighth grade students also have the opportunity to participate in an arts and music component designed to teach them how to play an instrument and learn about the arts.
The end result is that students are challenged by the school to take responsibility for their own learning as well as developing concern for the world around them, since they well be global citizens. Students are also given a globally competitive education so that they are able to improve their lives, their communities, and their families. The school maintains high academic standards as well as promoting accountability, but it also strives to promote a safe, caring environment.

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.

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: Beyond the FAFSA
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is an invaluable resource for parents and students that helps determine the financial aid a student is eligible for. But sometimes it isn’t enough to cover the cost of college without debilitating student loan debt. It can be very daunting consider what to do next, but there are resources. The first step should be talking to the college’s financial aid department. Establishing a relationship is essential because these people often have leeway they don’t advertise. If a student can demonstrate a change in income or status, or some additional issue that affects income but wasn’t covered in the FAFSA, then many colleges will adjust the aid package accordingly. Also, these folks might have insight into other scholarships that students have applied for. Many colleges offer scholarships based on various demographic factors, and financial aid departments will have information about these.
