Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waycross District Curriculum
The Georgia Performance Standards intend to make learning rigorous and relevant, applicable through problem-based teaching. Students are provided with the skills, content and knowledge to be college and career ready, using informational technical texts and increasing text complexity in core subjects to do so. From kindergarten to twelfth grade, students learn, perform and apply concepts to everyday activities of their daily life.
Learning is integrated between subjects for students to apply concepts and skills interchangeably. Even in areas of agriculture, computers, family life and health, students get involved in the many directions they could “be when they grow up.” The extracurricular activities that are available support many students goals and give them the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops, academic competitions and participate in community service and awareness campaigns and students become aware of their abilities.

Waycross District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Waycross students attend Ware County Schools. Students follow the Georgia Performance Standards, in alignment with Common Core State Standards. The curriculum includes expectations of performance within core subjects at each grade level of what students should be learning and need to know for college and career. The standards are found in K-12 language arts, with literacy standards integrated into science, social studies and technical education in the middle and high school grades, and in K-10 mathematics.
We currently cover the following Waycross-area school district: Ware County Schools.

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: Home Economics
Although a “class” or set of electives found in the high school grades, the activities and skills within this “subject area” can be taught as early as kindergarten. What some would call chores, others may call those activities just part of their everyday. Your child should be involved as well. Gathering, sorting and folding laundry, sweeping or vacuuming, watering the plants, filling or emptying the dishwasher…..all of these are learning moments for the youngest of children. Teenagers could be involved in the cooking of dinner, cleaning areas around the house, even collecting coupons or helping manage household spending. Involve your child or teen in your everyday or weekly household “chores” and they’ll benefit tremendously when on their own. The summer is the perfect time to begin, or continue, the activities and skills your children will need at some point in their life.
