Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summerland District Curriculum
Once students have mastered the basics, the schools encourage students to pursue a path that is suited to their interests and goals. Students may choose from a variety of courses in the following subjects: the arts, family and consumer sciences, foreign languages, music, physical education and health, special education, academic intervention, technology and business, and numerous options in core academics. The programs offered include Advanced Placement (AP) courses, language immersion, sports academies, and vocational training.
Students also acquire practical skills necessary for daily living, including the ability to problem solve, recognize patterns, and critically analyze information. They also investigate potential careers and examine the financial implications of their career choice. Students also learn about the various deductions taken from their pay and how those deductions reduce their net monthly income.

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: Choosing a College
The decision about what college to attend is one of the most significant choices a young person will make. Schools provide guidance on the selection and application process, but students must remember that it is a personal choice and consider whatever factors will bear on their decision. For instance, distance and location are a primary concern. Some students may want an urban college close to home, others may want to be in a rural environment far from home. Program options are also high on the list of importance as the college must have the academic programs that will prepare students for life after college. Scholarship and funding matters also weigh in on the decision, and students are best-advised to start considering the financial aspect early on in their planning. Students should not feel influence by peers with regards to this decision, and truly be guided to make the best decision for themselves.
