Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Laurinburg District Curriculum
The North Carolina Standard Course of Study has also developed a Global Education curriculum to ensure students are prepared for the world they will graduate into. One focus of the Global Education curriculum is language learning, and students are able to take courses in 15 different languages, 7 of which have a language immersion component available. The language immersion programs help students become bilingual and bilterate in a second language, and instruction is conducted in both languages.
The North Carolina Standard Course of Study incorporates the Common Core goals for English language arts. The Common Core State Standards organizes the ELA curriculum around reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. The reading strand focuses equal attention on fiction and non-fiction so that students are able to read and analyze literary works and also able to read scientific and history texts and learn new information. Students also learn how to locate and evaluate texts that they may use for independent reading or research.

Laurinburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Scotland County Schools are home to 13 total schools: seven elementary schools, three middle schools, and three high schools. The district uses the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, which combines the nationwide Common Core Standards for literacy and math and the North Carolina Essential Standards for all the other content areas. The vision for the Curriculum and Instruction department is for all students to graduate being college and career ready. The district has put together a LiveBinder with an introduction to the Common Core Standards, online resources for both sets of standards organized by content area and grade.
We currently cover the following Laurinburg-area school district: Scotland County Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Laurinburg Educational News
- Scotland County Schools Earn Prestigious College Board Award - Scotland County Schools recently became the first and only school district in North Carolina and one of 130 school districts from across the country to be awarded College Board’s Gaston Caperton Opportunity Honor Roll for expanding access to college to traditionally underrepresented students by offering rigorous academic courses and college-prep programs.

- Scotland High Marching Band Plays at Macy’s Parade - Just prior to Christmas, 72 students in the Scotland High marching band played in the Macy’s Holiday Parade in Orlando, Florida. The band received an invitation to perform after their director submitted an audition video to a travel company. The students were able to raise the majority of the funds needed for their trip. In addition to playing in the parade, which involved many floats and balloons that were a part of the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, students had the opportunity to enjoy some downtime in Universal Studios and at Sea World.
- Scotland High Senior Awarded Senate Youth Scholarship - A Scotland High senior was one of two students in North Carolina to be awarded with the United States Senate Youth Scholarship award worth $5,000. He will also have the opportunity to take part in a one-week program in Washington, D.C. during which he will experience the national government firsthand, including hearing policy addresses from cabinet members and senators and participating in a meeting with the Justice of the Supreme Court. In college, the student hopes to double-major in philosophy and political science.
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: College Applications
One of the biggest issues with college applications is the way they restrict students or add obligations for students to be considered. This can be a real problem for some students. There are two types of applications that allow students to determine where they will go during the first semester of their senior year - Early Action and Early Decision applications. Regular EA applications are due November 15th, usually. They don’t differ from other types of applications other than being early. Being compelled to attend a college without choice, if accepted, for example, can have an adverse effect on a student who is struggling financially. Also, not allowing students to apply to other colleges can be a difficulty. One of the worst issues is the long wait students often have to receive a response from a college.
