English and Math Enrichment Programs

Saturday Programs & Summer Programs for Grades 1-8

Mastering Math and English is key to academic success.  Students develop a strong foundation of learning that carries over into life, both inside and outside the classroom.  The A+ Math and English Enrichment curriculum meets and exceeds state standards so that students excel not only at ASC but also in school.  Every student is placed in the appropriate class level determined by a subject pre-test and an English speaking evaluation.

English classes

A+ English classes focus on active reading and writing skills. Active reading and writing challenges students to:

  • Critically engage with the texts they read.
  • Ask incisive questions to demonstrate comprehension.
  • Deeply probe the theme, tone and style of texts.
  • Effectively communicate their ideas in a clear and thoughtful way.
  • Compose and revise well-structured, organized and eloquent essays.

Active Reading is instrumental in helping students understand ALL TYPES of written work, from English novels to scientific articles.

Math classes

Our rigorous mathematics curriculum covers everything from basic skills to advanced mathematical concepts and how to apply them to the real world beyond the classroom. A+ Math emphasizes:

  • Inspiring advanced thinking by working with challenging course materials.
  • Mastering and solving complex word problems.
  • Practicing effective test-taking strategies for improved grades.
  • Reinforcing math skills through an assessment battery of homework, quizzes and a final exam.

The A+ Saturday Program incorporates Singapore Math in its curriculum. The Singapore Math system is a progressive and innovative method to make math both accessible and challenging to students at every level. THE ASC A+ MATH ENRICHMENT PROGRAM IS THE ONLY SCHOOL IN BOSTON USING SINGAPORE MATH!
