Lake Villa, Illinois Tutoring Programs
Get started with SchoolTutoring Academy's tutoring programs for Lake Villa, Illinois students.
Lake Villa District and Curriculum
The districts believe that all students can succeed, regardless of learning style, and that all students deserve opportunities to succeed, both academically and otherwise. The school’s curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards and is tested and rigorous, providing a fair, equal education to all students. All students need to be made aware of what’s expected of them as learners and citizens. Teachers are given the freedom to modify their lesson plans to support the learning needs of students, whether that be to provide a more rigorous, challenging course of study or to include remedial work to help catch a student up to grade level.
We currently cover the following Lake Villa-area school districts: Lake Villa District 41, Community High School District 117, Grant Community High School, and Grayslake Community High School District 127.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Villa District Curriculum
The Math curriculum incorporates Common Core Standards in numeracy, algebraic operations, geometry and measurement, and data and quantitative analysis. Skills are taught in all these areas during elementary and middle school so that students are prepared for full-year courses in subjects like algebra, geometry, and statistics when they start high school. Advanced Placement options are also available and there are an increasing number of engineering courses that require students have a strong background in math.
The Science curriculum uses Next Generation Science Standards which emphasize that students have a strong foundation in scientific facts, concepts, and processes. The standards also place emphasis on areas where the sciences are integrated such as chemistry and physics, bio-chemistry, and other innovative topics that dovetail with high demand career areas. Engineering is another area of focus and students draw upon their understanding of both math and science in the engineering and robotics programs that are available.

Chalk Talk: Rolling Applications
Rolling applications are college applications without a set due date, though there is an informal start and end date to the reading season. Most applications have a firm due date, and even if students apply before that date, their applications probably won’t even be read or considered until that date has passed. Then, they must wait often a long time—months—to hear a decision. Rolling applications are different in that students can submit any time after the “start” date, which is usually pretty early, maybe October or even September. Students then receive a decision usually within three weeks. This is significantly less stressful than waiting months. It doesn’t mean the college hasn’t spent less time considering the application; it just means they’ve processed it more efficiently.
