About the Academy

It is important to build an early, strong foundation for children in education, especially in the core subjects. We offer year round math and English group programs from Pre-Kindergarten thru High School and seasonal courses for specific elementary grades in science. Our classroom environment is very cordial and kids love the friendly, but very committed teachers who not only help them excel in the subjects they learn, but also prepare them for standardized tests.

Our Director

Hema Venkat
Hema was born and raised in India. After enjoying a very successful career in the field of Information Technology for about 15 years, she decided to devote her time and effort to the endeavor with A Grade Ahead. She holds a Master’s Degree in Science, and research experience at the coveted Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in Chemistry; she also earned a Degree in Information Technology and carries rich professional experience in multiple areas of expertise, including teaching. This led her to see the tremendous value of the A Grade Ahead method of teaching in addition to school based learning.

She credits the success of the academy to a supportive family (her spouse Shiv is actively involved in the business management), teachers who are passionate about education, competent management staff, and A Grade Ahead’s ability to produce positive results.
