Getting ahead in today’s world can be tough. It is not enough to have a basic understanding of concepts, and rote memorization will only get you so far.

An assessment will determine your child’s strengths and areas of opportunities.



Register your child for weekly classes with your local enrichment academy.



Your child will learn a new skill each week through a traditional lesson taught by the teacher.

Bharathi Balaji, born in Bangalore India, has made Charlotte her family’s home for the past 3 years. Before moving to sunny North Carolina, Bharathi and her family lived in New Jersey for 15 years. Earning a master’s degree in education, Bharathi became a Montessori teacher and understands the importance of hands-on learning and real-world application to her students. After seeing her own children excel in A Grade Ahead’s Enrichment at Home program, Bharathi knew that opening her own academy would fulfill her need as an educator to see children excel and grow within academics and self-confidence.

“I had a number of chances to pursue other fields, but I chose education because it is a key foundation for a better society.”– Bharathi Balaji, Academy Owner
