About Grade Levels: We understand that children vary in their development widely from grade to grade, and offer Summer Arts classes open to a two-grade range so parents/guardians may select which class best aligns with their child’s developmental level. This year, parents/guardians may choose either the grade their child completed in June 2017, or the grade their child will enter in September 2017.
