Answers to Your Questions About Enrichment at Home

A Grade Ahead is an enrichment program with curriculum for pre-kindergarten through high school students. A Grade Ahead’s curriculum is carefully crafted by our own education experts to align with and exceed national education standards. Students in our program learn not only fundamental skills, but also how to apply that knowledge to real-world situations.

Each week, there is a lesson to learn, and parents are provided with examples and teaching tips to help explain the lesson. Up to four days of homework help solidify the lesson. An answer key is provided at the end of each week and includes any necessary explanations for each problem.

A Grade Ahead ships curriculum directly to your home on a monthly basis. Packages can be expected to arrive around the first of each
month.

In math, students work on numerical drills and curriculum topics. Numerical drills help students master quick math facts and improve
foundational skills. Curriculum topics are taught in the weekly lesson. Your student completes practice activities to help solidify the
topic of the week. Their homework includes word problems to challenge their critical thinking skills. Up to four days of homework
are provided each week.

English is set up similarly. You and your student will review grade-level appropriate vocabulary words along with the weekly lesson.
Weekly lessons cover topics such as: grammar, reading comprehension, and writing. Your student will receive up to four days of
homework each week. This helps them master the topics provided.

After your student completes their practice, you may want to check their progress. You can do so either by grading their work or by
reviewing the reports in their student dashboard.

A Grade Ahead’s Enrichment at Home program is designed for any student who wants to excel at school and standardized testing—and who does not live within the territory of an A Grade Ahead Enrichment Academy. This provides an opportunity for students to catch up to their grade levels or be admitted into advanced or accelerated programs.

A Grade Ahead’s proprietary curriculum is written in-house by a team of education experts. It meets and exceeds the U.S. national
standards. Our program will teach your child essential critical thinking and analytical skills. We may not teach topics in the same order
as your child’s school, but the same topics will be covered throughout our curriculum.

We are constantly updating our curriculum to keep up with ever-changing educational standards.

The study packet is divided into 4 weeks. Each packet contains at least 3 new concepts and a review week. Each week contains:

  • A lesson of a topic that you should read and teach to your children. If your child is old enough, he or she can read through it before starting the worksheets.
  • Worksheets that reinforce the weekly lesson.
  • Answer keys for all the homework.

When your child completes the worksheets, the results can be entered on our Parent Portal.

Numerical drills are quick exercises that our math students complete each week to improve computational skills, speed, and accuracy. These worksheets are in addition to a separate curriculum booklet that the student receives each month. Numerical drills cover basic concepts such as addition, division, and fractions and are customized based on an individual student’s skills. English students do not receive numerical drills.

The monthly curriculum booklet contains topics related to curriculum that students will see in school. On top of numerical skills in math, word problems help students apply basic concepts to real-world situations. As for English, on top of grammar and vocabulary skills, students learn comprehension and writing skills.
