Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Frankfort District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards are rigorous and competitively benchmarked, offering a quality, comprehensive education. They incorporate the expectations in the Common Core Standards for Math and English Language Arts which were developed to ensure that students across the nation receive a college preparatory learning experience. Beyond providing for necessary skill sets and concept knowledge, the curricular objectives call for students to think critically about what they are learning.
Frankfort Community High School offers students the opportunity to choose from a variety of pathways so they may focus in on areas of interest. There are Advanced Placement courses that prepare students for college academics and a Career Technical Program that readies students to meet career expectations.

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: College Application Types
As colleges have gotten increasingly competitive with more and more students applying, college applications have gotten more and more varied. Some are geared toward ease and response speed. Others are geared toward demonstrating students’ commitment to the college. In general, all applications have certain commonalities, such as the application itself, transcripts, and an essay, which most applications require. Many applications require multiple essays, teacher recommendations, and a resume, though not all do. Some require additional essays, portfolios, and even interviews. Some students don’t believe that every aspect of an application is necessary, but a college wouldn’t ask for something if it didn’t plan on considering it as part of the application process.
