Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northlake District Curriculum
The schools also have partnerships with colleges and universities and provide students a start on their post-secondary education. Students will be ready for college or the workforce and will be competitive on a global level. The mission of these schools is to provide a safe, quality education to students, regardless of how they learn. If a student is struggling, interventions are sometimes necessary and when students show signs they are ready to advance.
The schools take pride in maintaining rigorous, fair academic standards that promote accountability and personal responsibility in students. The goal is for students to become self-guided learners who seek out their own interests. This appreciation for learning will guide them through their lives and help them develop an interest in the world around them and the options available to them for a future career path.

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: Student Loan Facts
There are two types of student loans provided by the US government: subsidized and unsubsidized. Subsidized loans are ones for which the government pays the interest while the student is in college. This can make a big difference if the student has a large student loan. Unsubsidized loans are ones for which the government doesn’t pay the interest, and that interest is compounded, or added, to the principle. Usually, a financial aid package will include a mix of the two types, along with grants and any scholarships. A grant is money that’s awarded, usually from specific government programs, sometimes from the college itself or some organization. Grants don’t have to be paid back and are based on economic need. Scholarships are similar to grants in that they don’t have to be paid back, but scholarships usually have a different stipulation than financial need that must be met. Scholarships might be based on academic performance, some demographic information, or some other factor.
