GRoton Accelerate Challenge Enrich (GRACE) provides an opportunity for students to use the summer after Third Form (9th grade) to accelerate their academic progress.
GRACE promotes flexibility within the Groton curriculum and ensures that every student reaches his or her full potential in the subjects of math, chemistry, English, and Latin. For some, GRACE will accelerate access to the most advanced courses; for others, it will fill a preparation gap and provide a foundation for success. Participants, known as GRACE Scholars, are selected through teacher and academic department recommendations, with input from students' advisors.
The four-week program prepares all GRACE Scholars for the rigors of Upper School (10th–12th grade), while also recognizing the importance of summer recreation, enrichment, and fun.
