Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Olney District Curriculum
The district curriculum promotes critical thinking, critical reading, and analytical writing skills and also encourages science literacy and problem solving skills to prepare students for the competitive work force they will face after graduation. Students are exposed complex, challenging texts in differing formats. Students come up with questions based on their reading and research and gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned, strong essays that demonstrate intelligence and thoughtfulness.
Richland County High School has a number of career-oriented electives that give students the chance to learn about a career area they are interested in and what it's like to participate in it after high school. They also offer their students many extracurricular opportunities including sports, arts, music, and clubs. Students are encouraged to become involved in community service, because students who become engaged in their school and with their peers are more likely to be engaged and active in their community after graduation.

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: Early Decision Applications
Early Decision applications (ED) are early, binding applications. The deadline is usually November 1, but this can vary from college to college. That means that all materials must be submitted by that time, including standardized testing. They are binding, which means that students commit to attending this college if accepted, before they’ve even received an acceptance. This can be beneficial for students. Colleges tend to favor early applicants, and acceptance rates are much higher among them. A borderline students might have a better chance at applying ED. The drawback is that another college might offer a better financial aid package, for example, but the student won’t be able to accept it. The student can petition for financial aid review, but there’s no guarantee anything will come of it.
