Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Santa Cruz District Curriculum

The goal of the Language Arts curriculum is to give students the communication and critical thinking skills to read and write effectively. Students are taught about grammar and language structure, ways to build vocabulary, and analytic skills that can be applied to taking in information and creating written or verbal expressions.

In Science, the framework moves students from the elementary levels to advanced levels through a framework of investigation into Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The process of scientific inquiry, the development and researching of theories are also key functions of the Science curriculum.

With the different learning strategies students gain in these subjects, they are prepared for the educational opportunities emerging in the 21st century. Many advanced and innovative programs combine multiple subjects and require the use of all these skills.

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

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Santa Cruz students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Santa Cruz District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The curriculum used in Santa Cruz is aimed at achieving a high-level of thinking and broad base of knowledge for all students. The subjects are laid out so that instruction can encompass both basic skills and higher-order concepts while allowing teachers creativity in their lessons and use of different instructional approaches.

The curriculum sets standards for learning at each grade level within each subject. In Math, students are introduced to the different mathematic topics with the purpose of teaching the broader skills of computation, measurement, data analysis, mathematical modeling, and ultimately abstract reasoning. These prepare students for advanced topics in science, engineering, and technology, and help inform real-world problem solving situations.

We currently cover the following Santa Cruz-area school district: Bonny Doon Union Elementary School District, Happy Valley Elementary School District, Live Oak Elementary School District, Santa Cruz City School District, Scotts Valley Unified School District, Soquel Union Elementary School District.
