Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Michigan City District Curriculum
Two state-of-the-art elementary schools, Lake Hills and Pine, opened in 2009. Both buildings now serve students as magnet schools, Lake Hills as a magnet school for Science, Engineering, Technology and Math, and Pine as a magnet school for the Visual and Performing Arts. Krueger Middle School has transformed its 100-acre campus into an Outdoor Environmental Science Center. Working with the Michigan City Forester, Purdue University North Central, Save the Dunes, the LaPorte County Soil and Water Conservation District, developed a curriculum that exceeds academic standards.
Several major grants, including two Indiana Coastal Grants, have funded the creation of two trail systems and a savanna prairie, and a wetlands restoration project is currently under way. Teaching and learning is centered on hands-on experiences, and both core subjects and rotation classes are conducted with an environmental focus, using inquiry-based techniques.

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 Prep
Preparing your child to attend college should not begin in the student’s junior or senior year of college. Instead, parents should begin talking about college attendance as early as primary school. There are many ways a parent can support the child’s pursuit of a college education; but the following tips help to lay the groundwork. Almost every community has some access to community and/or university campuses. Take your child to one of your choosing and wander through buildings and facilities. Getting comfortable in a college setting can begin at a very early age. Sign your child up to attend workshops and other learning and athletic opportunities offered by universities and open to the public. This helps cement the idea of transitioning from the public education setting to college.
