Frequently asked Questions






How is the a Grade Ahead's Enrichment At Home program different from other programs?

A Grade Ahead’s program is based on the curriculum that is laid out for U.S. public schools. In this program, the students get the unique opportunity to cover a majority of the topics in detail for each grade (and in some cases even go above and beyond.) At the same time students have exposure to drills which are customizable to their skill level.

Who should enroll in the a Grade Ahead Program?

The A Grade Ahead program is designed for any student who wants to excel at school and standardized testing—and who does not live within a 10-mile driving distance from an A Grade Ahead Enrichment Academy. This provides an opportunity for students to catch up to their grade level or be admitted into the advanced or accelerated programs.

Does the program clash with what is taught at my child’s school?

In the A Grade Ahead Program, the students practice the topics covered at their grade level. So the program is designed to be a very effective supplemental program to their school classwork.

How do I select an appropriate study level for my child?

A student’s current grade in school is also typically the appropriate starting point for the A Grade Ahead program. If you believe your child is ahead or behind his/her grade level, please have your student try the samples in math and English posted on our website. You can choose the grade level with which to start during the registration process. This can be changed at a later time, if necessary.
