Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockton District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is rigorous, and expectations are clearly communicated to students. The expectations within the curriculum are translated into daily learning objectives by the teachers and guide students from one topic to the next. The learning objectives call for students to think critically about what they are learning so that they develop scientific and mathematical reasoning and the ability to analyze and interpret various types of literary texts.
Diversity is also emphasized, and students are taught to base relationships on mutual respect. By learning to value and respect others, students are prepared for success in a diverse world after graduation. Students are provided a secure, challenging educational environment that is conducive to learning and success. The school also models and teaches behaviors that lead to character development so that students learn not only how to learn but how to behave respectfully and appropriately in order to achieve success in life and to contribute to society in meaningful ways.

Rockton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Rockton School District and Hononegah Community High School District use the Illinois Learning Standards as its curricular framework. The districts strive to provide meaningful opportunities to all students, and to encourage students to reach their full potential. Extracurricular opportunities are offered so that students can learn and succeed in nonacademic ways. Community service is also stressed so that students learn to help others and contribute to their community. The overall goal is for students to become self-directed learners who take responsibility for their own education and their own success.

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: Restricted Early Action
Restricted Early Action (EA) is a nonbinding, early college application type. It’s nonbinding, which means students don’t have to attend the college if accepted. They are restricted, which means that students aren’t allowed to apply to other colleges until they’ve received a decision. Then, they are free to apply elsewhere. Restricted Early Action applications are rare; unrestricted are much more common. Restricted Early Action is often offered in lieu of Early Decision applications. Because they are early, applicants compete against fewer other students, which leads to higher acceptance rates. Also, colleges tend to favor Restricted Early Action applicants for making the commitment to apply in a committed manner.
