Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Huntingdon District Curriculum
The district supports the career and college readiness initiatives for its students. Based on the recent shift to the Common Core, the Huntingdon Area School District is committed to the PA Core Curriculum for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The PA Core Standards are real world relevant and offers a rigorous curriculum to produce high-quality learners ready for college, career, and life upon graduation.
The English language arts curriculum in Huntingdon explores many topics related to improved reading, writing, speaking, and listening abilities. In the elementary grades, students engage in a study of literature, gaining valuable skills that allow them to improve their ability to read more complex works. Students are encouraged to ask questions about textual elements they don’t understand such as unfamiliar vocabulary words. Students also gain the ability to discern between different types of texts, from those that tell a story to those that deliver information.

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: Common Core - Common Myths
The Common Core Standards have quickly become the national standards as over 43 states have adopted them as their English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics curriculum. There is also a firestorm of debate over Common Core as some local boards of education and parents nationwide are not exactly fans of the new standards. There are some common myths associated with Common Core. Some believe that adopting Common Core means that states’ are bringing down the standards or lowering the bar for students. Yet Common Core is built on rigorous and high level standards to produce college and career ready students upon graduation. Another myth is that the standards do not address content knowledge only skills. The core website touts the importance of both content as well as skills in both math and English Language Arts. Check out Common Core to learn more about the standards.
