Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Frontenac District Curriculum
The secondary curriculum begins with grade 9 and explains the more in-depth focus students will take in these courses. The curriculum is designed so that students have choices and are able to decide upon a path they want to take. The paths that the curriculum makes available ranges from the arts to technology, and students are able to seek out additional academic programs or enrichment opportunities.
In Math, students begin secondary school learning about algebra, geometry, and data analysis in Math. In Science, they are introduced to key concepts in biology, chemistry and physics. Starting in grade 10, each of these topics become full-year courses that students can take in either an Academic or Applied format. The Academic format places emphasis on the theoretical aspects of each subject while the Applied format emphasizes the practical applications the subjects have.

South Frontenac District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The aim of the curriculum used in South Frontenac’s schools is to provide students with a strong foundation of knowledge and an understanding of concepts and principles learned in subjects like Science, Math, History, and Languages. The Ontario Curriculum lays out the core subjects for elementary and secondary students differently. Students take the same courses – Science, Math, English, History/Social Studies, the Arts, Physical Education – but during the elementary years they are provided with building blocks of knowledge in a broad array of topics central to each subject.
We currently cover the following South Frontenac-area school districts: Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board and Limestone District School Board.

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: Alternatives for College
Some teens do not desire to attend college after high school. There are options for these students. They can find a job, by asking people and sending applications. Ideally, they should look for a position in a line that they believe they would enjoy, plus they should look at entry-level positions which will allow for growth. Perhaps the teen feels they can begin their own business. Once they find the area they would like to pursue, they can see what they can offer. They can begin by listing their strengths and their interests and then see how they can use this in a way others would appreciate. Another idea is to look into traveling. To help to finance this the teen can look into international community services, working on a cruise ship or as an au pair.
