Educating Our Parents: Understanding the University Park District Curriculum
In recent years, the Illinois Learning Standards have increased the rigor of the Math, Science, and English Language Arts frameworks. There are more critical thinking requirements so that students develop the habit of analyzing problems, locating and evaluating information, and working collaboratively to find solutions. These broad goals also support the college and career ready goals established in the curriculum. As students progress, they will find more opportunities for independent learning.
Students are offered opportunities for success and are taught to focus on the knowledge and skills necessary for academic achievement. They are also taught to honor and embrace diversity and to work productively in group settings, both as respectful participants and active listeners. Students are taught to respect their physical environment and all members of the school community through healthy choices and also through community service and volunteering opportunities. Students who become engaged with their community are more likely to be involved citizens later on in life.

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: Early Decision
Early Decision (ED) applications are one of the most popular types of application because of the benefits students perceive them to have. One of the key benefits is for students who know where they want to go and want to get through with the wait on the decision. They are early, being due usually November 1st, as opposed to December 1st or even later for Regular Decision, but this also means students tend to receive a response before the end of the calendar year. Because of this, many students will apply to only one college and be finished. They are also binding, which means students agree to attend this college if accepted, regardless of any other offers. Because of this commitment, colleges tend to favor ED applicants, and acceptance rates tend to be significantly higher for ED than for other application types.
