Math and English Enrichment Classes for Grades 1 - 8
To achieve excellent grades in school, students need to develop a solid foundation in English and Math. This is because Math and English are the languages through which we learn, no matter the subject. Without a strong grasp of these means of communication, your child cannot learn effectively. With excellent English and Math skills, your child will learn successfully for life, with confidence, both inside and outside the classroom.
The A+ Approach
At A+ Program, we provide an enriching learning environment, challenging math enrichment programs, and exciting English enrichment classes designed to help students achieve their highest potential.
- The A+ Math and English Enrichment curriculum meets and exceeds Massachusetts state standards so that our students are one step ahead in school.
- Every student is placed in the appropriate class level determined by a subject pre-test and an English speaking evaluation.
- Through the A+ Homework Club, homework coaches provide assistance for students who need extra help in their math and English classes.
- A+ Program’s High School Volunteer Group of outstanding students will coach your child with close guidance from A+ academic leaders.
But that’s not all. We teach something that schools do not – executive functioning skills.
Executive Functioning Skills are Essential for Academic Success
Executive Functioning Skills, which ASC A+ Program calls “Life Success Skills,” are critical to a student’s academic success. These skills help students remember and follow multi-step instructions, avoid distractions, control their responses, adapt when rules or situations change, persist at problem-solving, and manage long-term assignments.
When these skills are not taught, students may master the material in school but forget assignments, are disorganized, fail to complete long-term projects, have trouble focusing and have difficulty with change.
Help your child achieve success in school and in life. Sign up for A+ Program today!

"I was enrolled in another program in which there were only children who were very advanced. The instructors did not know how to teach students who were performing at their regular grade level, and it was a waste of time. The teachers at ASC are always very prepared, they explain things clearly, and the homework aligns with the lessons."View All
