Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shively District Curriculum
Starting in their primary years, students are expected to meet the standards of the Core Curriculum. Children are entered into the primary program at age five and stay there until they are ready to enter grade four, during which time fundamental reading, comprehension, problem-solving and inquiry skills are instilled. These are expanded on in the later years when students read and analyze texts, problem-solve across areas of math, and conduct experiments and formulate sound hypotheses
Shively students follow the Kentucky Department program for Career and Practical Living studies. This is a program that studies the living practices of the population. The goal is to make students aware that living practices can lead to obesity or heart problems among others. There is an effort to not sacrifice good health practices for academics. At Holy Cross High School in Shively, students take part in activities such as sports, art club and theater. These activities encourage social awareness and interactions with other people.

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.

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: Making Choices
When you have to make a choice between options it can be difficult. For instance, you may have to choose between colleges to attend. Or you may have to choose between courses to take or even between boys or girls to date. Discussing it with your parents and friends is a good way to proceed but they cannot decide for you. There are some simple tools to use to help you make choices. One is to take a sheet of paper and write all the pros of one choice and all the cons. Often it is surprising how this simple task can help you find the choice you should make. Every day we have choices to make. Good luck with yours!
