*In most cases, students coming from schools where the academic year does not correspond with Graded’s August-June school calendar (e.g., South Africa, Australia, South Korea) will continue in the same grade level when they enter Graded (e.g., a child who has completed grade 4 in Australia and arrives midway through our school year will complete the rest of the year in grade 4 prior to moving onto grade 5).
