FAQs for Math, Science and English Reading/Writing programs (Grades K thru 10)
How do I enroll?

2 options to enroll:

  1. You can enroll online.


  2. Call customer service toll free at 1-877-67SUPPL or 1-877-677-8775 and enroll.


When will I receive the study material and worksheets?

The worksheets and study material follow a weekly program and are mailed once a month as a 4-week packet set. Each Monday thru Sunday week is distinctly marked on every worksheet for convenient use.

How is this program different from the other enrichment programs in the market?

The Math, Science and Language Arts programs are unique.

The Math program concentrates not just on the Quantative aspects of Math (as in Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division) but also on the Problem Solving, Critical Analysis and Analytical areas of Math (as in Time, Money, Measurements, Graphs, Geometry, Statistics, etc) for a well rounded Math education.

The Language Arts program covers all the areas of English language requirements at school including Reading, Writing, Comprehension, Grammar, Vocabulary, Phonics, Spelling, etc. Since the School Supplement program covers Writing also along with Reading skills your child will likely develop a love for not just reading books but also writing. The vocabulary worksheets are grade appropriate and enhance comprehension skills.

The Science program is based on the guidelines of the National Science Foundation and is covered in several different areas - Life Science, Physical Science, Science and Technology, Science and Society and Earth and Space Science in a series of more than 50 topics in every grade level. Each of the more than 50 topics includes Reading Material (which includes a list of vocabulary words/scientific terms), a short Quiz on the topic and an Activity/Experiment.

How involved would I need to be with the program?

Most of the involvement from the parent is based on creating a proper learning environment while the child is working on the worksheet. The program assumes that the child is working independently on the worksheets. Every worksheet that introduces a new topic has study material or solved example or both.

I am a busy parent, how would this program help me better direct my childís education?

One of the important goals of the School Supplement program is to help parents keep track of what their child is supposed to know at their grade level. This program provides a ready-made solution that the child can undergo consistently throughout the year without the parent having to make time to keep themselves updated on what needs to be done and when. School Supplement provides concise information on a weekly basis and the overall and detail milestones that your child has met and what your child needs to know for an above-average Math, English and Science education.

Would I need to refresh my knowledge on the subject in the worksheet and on how to teach my child?

The worksheets also include study material. Since the child may or may not have studied this material at school or that the child may be ahead of his school curriculum the program worksheets are self contained with the required information explained in a simple manner appropriate to the age group.

Can I cancel my subscription?

Yes. You can discontinue anytime you are not satisfied with the school supplement method or the value that it brings to your childís education. Simply call customer service or email customerservice@schoolsupplement.com with the title CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION with your subscription number. Itís that simple.

Would this program increase my child's chances of getting into a 'gifted and talented' or enrichment program at school?

Yes, definitely. If you get your child to consistently follow this program, it would greatly increase your child's chances of getting into a GNT (gifted and talented) program at school. Students who study daily consistently outperform students who study only before a test. The school supplement program has several features that help the child get into a routine of excellence. The worksheets and the emphasis on Math application (as in problem solving and word/story problems) make sure that your child is mentally ready for testing in schools and standardized tests. There are several tests that kids get tested on at school. Most parents know of the state administered standardized tests, but there are other less publicized tests that are administered to kids as early as the kindergarten grade. Some of these could be the Terra Nova/CTBS, CAT/5, ITBS, SAT9 or MAT. Schools may use these tests to find out if your child needs to be in the gifted and talented program at school. If your child is not used to practice tests and is subjected to testing only at school, the results could be unpredictable.

How would my childís progress be monitored?

A Progress Test is mailed along with the worksheets/study material every 8 to 10 weeks intervals. The parent/educator administers this test to the student. The completed test can be faxed/emailed/mailed back to School Supplement for review. It is optional for the parent to return the Progress Test.

Do I have to return the completed worksheets?

No, you do not have to mail the completed work back to School Supplement. The worksheets are sent along with the answer sheets which have explanations on them. A Progress Test is mailed along with the worksheets/study material every 8 to 10 weeks intervals. The parent/educator administers this test to the student. The completed test can be faxed/emailed/mailed back to School Supplement for review. It is optional for the parent to return the Progress Test.

Do I get the answer keys along with the worksheets?

Yes, the worksheets are mailed to you along with the answer sheets which have explanations on them. Besides the answer sheets, every time a new topic is introduced a explanation with a step by step example is also included.

Writing Programs (the Advanced, SAT or ACT ) with Teacher Feedback (Grades 3 thru 12)
(Click here to check out a sample of the program.)
How does the new Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback (online) work?

Have you tried everything to improve your childís writing but nothing seems to work? What if a teacher could review their writing and provide detailed feedback on ways to improve it? School Supplement now offers the Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback that will take your childís writing abilities to the next level regardless of their current writing skills. The online program gives you the added benefit of having the benefits of a teacherís guidance in the convenience of your own home. Access the weekly writing assignments from the School Supplement website and simply submit all assignments through email and a teacherís detailed feedback will be provided to the student. Since each assignment is reviewed by a teacher, students receive one-on-one attention rather than a one size fits all approach.

The Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback can challenge students to keep their writing skills sharp during school breaks or it can be used to more specifically assist them with their school writing homework. So how does it work? Each month a 4-week writing assignment will be provided online with samples and instructions on what to write and how to write the best possible essay. This methodical approach to essay writing makes it easier for students to learn and understand the writing process. The writing assignments will cover a variety of topics and will challenge students to practice different types of writing, including argumentative, persuasive, informative, and many more. Being presented with a different topic each week will also help students overcome writerís block. The Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback gives students a well-rounded grasp of the different types of writing that they will need to know for the future of their academic career.

Students can also use this program for more specific assistance by replacing the assigned writing work with their homework essay writing assignments from school (upto one page per essay). This is a wonderful option for students with a heavy workload as it will allow them to continue to work towards their short and long term writing goals without adding to their workload. Once your child has completed the assignment, simply submit it through email to essay@schoolsupplement.com. The writing assignment can be sent as an attached file, typed in the body of the email, emailed from Google drive, or however is most convenient for your child and receive a teacher reviewed feedback with an overall grade/score. After making the necessary corrections, students can resubmit the assignment for a final review. A total of up to four submissions for essay review can be made for each monthly payment.

The Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback will give students the skills they need to be more confident writing for the SAT and ACT, as well as college applications and any future assignments. Being a proficient writer is essential to being successful in school and a good foundation in writing will prepare students for success in middle school, high school, and college.

How does the SAT or ACT Essay Writing Program with Teacher Feedback (online) work?

The SAT and the ACT Essay writing program works the same way as the Advanced Writing Program except that the program is geared towards preparing the student for the essay writing section of the SAT and ACT tests.
