Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shelby District Curriculum
Curricula in these districts follow the Grade Level Content Expectations (GLCE). Instruction is designed to provide students with developmentally appropriate lessons to prepare students for subsequent learning. Beginning with primary grades, students learn foundational skills in English language arts, science, mathematics, social studies, art, music, and physical education. Students have many opportunities to hone their technological and media skills throughout their experiences. Emotional and social development is also an essential part of the learning community, provided through character and guidance education.
Although UCS and RCS have many secondary options, Shelby students will most likely attend Malow or Shelby Junior High Schools, as well as Dwight D. Eisenhower High School. Nonetheless, school of choice allows residents to choose from a variety of options, as well as the Romeo Engineering and Technology Center. All options are committed to preparing students for college and/or career through individual planning and a comprehensive selection of courses.
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 Shelby 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.
Shelby District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Residents of Shelby Charter Township will attend Utica Community Schools (UCS), with a small population attending Romeo Community Schools (RCS). UCS consists of an early education program (infant through preschool), twenty-five elementary schools, seven junior high schools, four traditional high schools, and one advanced academy. Both the UCS and RCS adhere to the Michigan Curriculum Framework (MCF) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). At present, the CCSS focuses on modifications to the English language arts and mathematics curricula. In particular, students are expected to become literate citizens (reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing) and competent with numbers. Instruction must also prepare students for post-secondary education and work.

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: The Importance of Business Involvement with Schools
As state and federal standards mandate career and college readiness, schools strive to make this requirement a reality. To assist schools and teachers in this ultimate objective, businesses should host local events for students to learn about possible careers and training programs. Before graduation, students will learn about numerous paths but few will truly understand the dynamics of specific careers or will know their desired paths. Additionally, schools and individual teachers may lack the necessary funding, supplies, or access to a proper venue to demonstrate career options to students. For these reasons, it is important that businesses take interest in their future workforce. Businesses can provide students with hands-on, in-person demonstrations. They can host an event that highlights their innovative products and behind-the-scenes action. Students can speak to people in various roles, understanding the many facets of businesses. These opportunities can spark interests in students in ways that much classroom instruction cannot. If schools have been tasked with preparing students for post-secondary education and work, training programs and employers should be a part of their education.
