Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palos Heights District Curriculum
These schools follow the Illinois Common Core Standards curriculum, which emphasizes the reading of nonfiction texts, rather than novels or poetry, the writing of analytical essays, rather than creative writing, and a general exploration of the physical world, rather than abstract ideas. Critical thinking and analysis is stressed as the core of the curriculum. Students are nurtured to gain a solid work ethic which will inspire them to take responsibility for their own learning.
The schools also provide college guidance, citizenship preparedness, physical development, and a focus on developing the self. The overarching goal of these schools is to help all students succeed, regardless of learning styles, or any other factors. Time management and the development of a strong work ethic are also essential. This will help students strive to continually perform up to their greatest potential and abilities in all areas.

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: FAFSA Facts
With the rising costs of college attendance, financial aid has become more and more necessary. Parents and students are looking for the “magic bullet” that will make college more affordable. The reality is that there is no magic bullet, but there are several things to be aware of. The frontline in financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most colleges base their awards packages on this. The FAFSA is an online application that goes live (or updates with each year’s new version) in January. It’s important that students fill this out as soon as possible, because financial aid is awarded “first come, first serve.” The FAFSA does require tax return information, and most people haven’t done their taxes in January. That’s fine; the FAFSA allows estimated returns, which can be updated, later. The FAFSA will help give students an idea of possible financial aid, but it’s important to stay in contact with financial aid departments in colleges in case clarification is needed.
