AMALC accommodates families that have planned vacations by providing Make-Up lessons for the child.



NEXT LEVEL……How can my child progress to the next level?

Every student needs to achieve a passing score before moving to the next level. If the student doesn’t achieve the passing score we offer review lessons at no extra cost to the parent. Our aim is to help your child to graduate and move on to the next level. We will focus on the specific areas that will prepare them for retaking the final test. They do not have to repeat the entire level.
