SSA is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.
A child who has reached his/her fourth birthday by April 16th may enter kindergarten if he or she demonstrates an extraordinary level of academic ability, maturity, and completes an Early Kindergarten Packet that meets all required criteria.
