Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ottawa District Curriculum

The curriculum used in all districts is based on the Illinois Learning Standards. The Science curriculum undertakes creative exploration of the natural world as well as a study of the inquiry process itself. The curriculum stresses key concepts and principles in life sciences, physical science, and earth and space sciences, and also places important issues of science, technology, and society in historical and contemporary contexts so that students understand not only the concepts but their place and significance in history.

The schools also attempt to guide students to develop the skills and habits necessary to become effective leaders and intelligent citizens and demonstrate the inter-related nature of all the curricula they have studied as well as the idea that all fields contribute to each student’s intellectual growth significantly. By taking an integrated approach, students will understand the relevancy of the subject matter they are being taught.

Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.

Ottawa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The districts attempt to work with students, parents, and community to teach students in a safe, positive, rigorous environment which stresses mature, responsible citizenship as well as a lifelong love of learning. The districts also strive to help its students progress intellectually, personally, physically, and socially according to their abilities and according to how much responsibility they will assume for their own education, personal well-being, and social awareness.

Chalk Talk: The College Admissions Process

The process that colleges use to select students can seem baffling, but it’s usually fairly straightforward. First, there are the dates of applications. Unless an application is Rolling, admissions representatives probably won’t read it until the deadline has passed. Then, once the application is complete, a regional representative will read it and make a decision. Then, a second and sometimes third reader reads it. All of these readers will either make a decision or will bring the application to committee. The earlier readers will then argue for the applicant. If they can convince the committee, then the applicant is accepted. Sometimes, the committee can’t decide, and the applicant is deferred, which means the committee will decide later, or waitlisted, which means that the committee will hold on to the application and possibly accept the applicant at a future time.
