The Bibb County School System has a new strategic plan that has become known as the Macon Miracle. Through the use of this plan the district aims to use new and innovative teaching and learning strategies to deliver core curriculum content to students in new and more meaningful ways so that it can be applied to the hyper technical, multicultural and globally centered world that the students must be able to live and work in throughout their lives. This plan aims to be community inclusive and continuously changing. The core curriculum areas are Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies. Students must be able to apply the core content to real world situations. The purpose of not only learning the material but also how to apply it is intended to prepare students to function in the world.
We currently cover the following Macon-area school district: Bibb County School District.

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 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: The Advantages of Participating in Fine Arts
We seem to be getting lost in the world of academic achievement, and often times at the expense of Fine Arts education. Many people feel that Fine Arts are antiquated and irrelevant in the world today. That is simply not true. Through the study of Fine Arts children can enhance their ability to grasp the primary academic subjects. Several studies have shown that children that participate in musical arts such as band and choir perform better on mathematical assessments. Studies have also shown that children in visual arts classes have better spatial awareness. Not only do these classes enhance academic learning abilities they supply children with the ability to develop creativity skills. Additionally, these classes often an emotional outlet that allows for more personal development. Based on these facts it is fair to say that Fine Arts programs should be supported in schools across the United States.
