What Year/Grade Level Is My Student?

Use this table as a guide to help understand the various terminology youmay hear around Arise. since we teach a variety of subjects that offer UK exam prep and USA high school transcript credit, this may help in understanding.

It is important to keep in mind that home-educated kids may be learning at multiple academic levels based on specific subject strengths weaknesses, and passions. It is not our goal to ‘pigeonhole’ any student into a grade level, but to provide clarification to help you navigate your home education options.
