Levels/Classes
You can follow the progress of your child by checking the chart below which outlines the
goals required for graduation from each level.  One of the finest features of the program is
that your child will progress at his/her own pace.  Our site supervisors or director will
"graduate" your child at any point in the lessons, as spot testing determines they are ready
for the next level.  Your child may be moved to another coach or the present one will start
working on the next set of skills.

Remember...there is always:

A Maximum of 3 Students per Coach!
