Get Ready for Grade Level is free for students and families. The courses are available in English on the Khan Academy website and mobile app today. Like all our courses, they are completely free. The courses will be available in Spanish the week of June 22. Students start by taking a Course Challenge. The Course Challenge helps them understand what they need to review. If they have gaps for the grade they’re entering in the fall, students spend their time mastering the important skills they need to fill those gaps. If they don’t have gaps, students accelerate ahead and brush up on the skills they need for next school year. Available for Grades 3 - Pre-Calculus.
