Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Charles District Curriculum
The curriculum focuses on skills students need to succeed in post-secondary classes and the professional world. The English Language Arts curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing analytic essays. Students are expected to gather information and use evidence to support their arguments while increasing their vocabularies. The curriculum focuses on reading nonfiction and analytic writing to give students the skills to find and evaluate information.
The Mathematics curriculum begins at the elementary school level and emphasizes concepts such as numbers, shapes, ratios, fractions, and patterns before moving onto more advanced topics in middle school and high school. Students build on skills in algebra, geometry and statistics throughout the early grades to prepare them for full year courses in these topics. The curriculum is intended to give students the opportunity to apply their math skills to real world problems and challenges.

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: Test Optional Colleges
The purpose of standardized tests like the SAT and ACT is to demonstrate how well a student will do in college. Some studies are showing that this isn’t always the case. Because of this evidence, several colleges have gone test optional. This means that they no longer require standardized tests as part of their applications. In lieu of tests, many of these colleges require an additional essay or a graded written exam. Some require an interview or project to replace the test scores. Standardized tests can be onerous to students, and some students simply don’t test well, so these options can be a real boon. More and more colleges are going test optional, but they are still a minority. It might be difficult for a student to put together a long list of colleges that are test optional and fit his or her other needs, so the reality is that standardized tests are still necessary for most applicants.
