The ACCEL Schools Difference

We are a proud member of ACCEL Schools—a public charter school network serving thousands of PK-12 students throughout the United States. ACCEL was founded in 2012 by the early pioneers of online learning. Our leadership believes that all children, regardless of location or socio-economic background, deserve a quality education that prepares them to succeed in school and become productive global citizens.  

ACCEL Schools Instructional Model provides: 

  • Aligned Academics meet or exceed state standards ensuring your child is on track for rigorous college and career opportunities.    
  • Certified, Licensed Teachers and a student-centered staff are united in executing our mission to make a difference in the life trajectory of each student.    
  • More Time on Task and double the instructional minutes for ELA and Math maximizes learning in your child’s school day.   
  • Short Cycle Assessments keep track of how students are progressing in the program, giving teachers ongoing feedback so they can tailor instruction to your student’s needs.    
  • Individualized Instruction driven by assessment data means we are familiar with the needs of each child and set students up for success in each course of study.    
  • State Testing Preparation reduces the anxiety often associated with high stakes tests, helping our teachers and students feel confident with the structure and methodology of state exams.    
  • Academic Support including education technology, interventional specialists, and instructional aides assist students during the school day. After school tutoring, summer school, and Saturday school programs extend support services beyond the traditional school day and year.   
  • Extracurricular Courses & Activities round out our educational offerings providing students social-emotional learning, athletics, arts, service learning & more.

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

It is indeed a pleasure to welcome all our returning students and our new students to the 2021-2022 school year! At this point with the covid-19 pandemic slowing down, we are not clear yet on the different learning modalities that will be offered. As soon as we know, you will surely be informed. Teachers and staff are excited and look forward to sharing many academic experiences with our students. It is with great pleasure that I am announcing the arrival of 2 international teachers from the Philippines who will be joining our staff this upcoming school year. As we partner with our families, we will work together to provide your student with the best possible education and educational experience. We plan to continue with the implementation of our Positive Behavior Support System (PBIS) Program to productively help our students with discipline issues regardless of the learning option they chose. Also, given the fact that our scholars have been out of school for almost six months, more than ever before, we want to establish a strong partnership with our families so we can work together to improve our students’ academic and social skills.
