Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marion District Curriculum
Marion County School District offers many unique academic programs in addition to its standards-approach to academic subjects. In early 2015, Marion High School began integrating its JAG (Job for American Graduates) into its curriculum. The ultimate goal is for students to find success in the workplace. The district's Academy for Careers and Technology was opened in 1967. This vocational school provides students with opportunities in technical instruction and training and career-building; it focuses on several career clusters.
For the 2015-16 school year, the academy will introduce the new career cluster Mechatronics (mechanical + electronics). A very experienced industrial electronics teacher will serve as the instructor of the program, which combines the fields of electrical, mechanical, computer, and industrial engineering. Practical Nursing 1, which is offered only to seniors, is the only career cluster that requires students to complete an application and pre-entrance exam.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Marion students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Marion District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Marion County School District serves the towns of Marion, Mullins, and Graham, SC. The district includes the Mullins Early Childhood Center and the Academy for Careers & Technology alongside its traditional schools. The district uses a series of Standards that detail the learning expectations in all subjects and encompasses alternative programming such as International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement. In addition to a rigorous academic pathway, districts also have created career-related pathways that help students connect to their post-secondary goals. Students are also expected to take part in community service and outreach programs, and are encouraged to participate in some of the many extracurricular opportunities.
We currently cover the following Marion-area school district: Marion County School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Marion Educational News
- Marion County Offers Montessori Program - Marion County School District will offer a new pilot magnet program: a Montessori early childhood class for 20 students, who will be selected using a lottery system. Montessori-style instruction revolves around self-directed acuity, hands-on learning, collaborative play, a focus on the whole child, and students making creative choices through learning. The program is one that is chosen by parents for their children.
- Mullins High Shares First Week Photos - Mullins High School shared photos of students "working together, engaged, and enjoying themselves" during the first week of school. The photos showed Mr. Murray teaching students to read music, Mrs. Davenport organizing a collaborative activity that involved students working with paper cups as mountains, and Mr. Stevenson's students working in pairs during a lesson on protons and neutrons.
- Marion County Superintendent Announces Retirement - Marion County School District Superintendent Dr. Dan Strickland, a Marion County native who joined the district in 2011, announced he will retire at the conclusion of the 2015-16 school year. During his four years with the district, Dr. Strickland is most known for merging three districts into one--an effort he said would not have been possible if not for the teamwork of the Boards of Education, the legislative delegation, district staff, and the community. The retiring superintendent also helped raise the graduation rate, established an early childhood Montessori program, and increased the number of dual credit courses available to students in all three high schools.
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: Commonly Confused Words
Students often mix up commonly confused words. "Precede" and "proceed" may be used wrongly; the former means to come before, and the latter is to move forward. Another example is "presents" and "presence." Presents are gifts (plural); presence means to be there (i.e.: to be present in school). Students should refer to the leader of their school as their "principal," not their "principle," which means a belief. "Rebate" and "refund" seem like similar words, but rebate refers to a store discount, while refund is receiving all your money back when returning an item you bought. One more: "Residence" refers to a home or other building where people live; "residents" are the people who live there.
