Meet The Owners

Sweta Desetty, owner of A Grade Ahead of Northborough, was taught the importance of education at a very young age. Born in India, Sweta’s parents valued the power of education. They taught Sweta that with education comes a bright future and the power to achieve her highest dreams. Moving to the United States in 2010, Sweta and her husband shortly found their home in Massachusetts. After hearing about A Grade Ahead from her sister and seeing how much she loved the program for her children, Sweta found the A Grade Ahead website and found her passion.

“The curriculum that we offer here at A Grade Ahead is like no other. Our parents can see what their children are learning, and we cover a new topic weekly. It’s truly the best curriculum around!”– Sweta Desetty
