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 Learning Center. This provides an opportunity for students to catch up to their grade level or be admitted into the advanced or accelerated programs.

How do students advance to higher levels?

We also strongly encourage parent feedback and suggestions in the process of evaluating a student's level.
