“The great thing about Grade Power is that we change the way students think about learning. Grade Power is the only learning center that assesses both learning and academics skills. We teach kids to “Learn how the Learn”. I love Grade Power’s curriculum and methodology, because it corrects the root cause of the student’s struggles, which builds a strong foundation for them to learn and be successful for the rest of their lives.” Grade Power Learning helps students ages 3 to 18. We provide a great SAT/ACT Prep class that will help you get the score you deserve. Our goal is to help you not experience "Test Anxiety" when taking the test. You Will be Prepared!!
