What records are needed to enroll?

Basic student information will be required during the enrollment process (name, DOB, etc.). If the parent wishes to transfer credits completed at another high school, a transcript will be required to qualify the student for graduation. However, the transcript may be submitted after enrollment.

For elementary and middle school enrollments, a transcript or report card are not necessary. For more information about submitting a high school transcript to transfer credits to Acellus Academy, please see the following tutorial: Creating a High School Education Plan

The enrollment process must be completed by the student’s parent or legal guardian (unless the student is over the age of 18).

Are students allowed to take breaks or receive time off for holidays?

At Acellus Academy, we embrace a self-paced learning model in which each course is taught through-video based lessons. This method of teaching allows parents the flexibility to plan breaks and vacations without disrupting their student’s schooling schedule. On days when a student doesn’t log in, they will not be considered absent and their grade will not be impacted. Credit for a course is awarded upon successful completion of all lessons, assignments, and exams. To maintain steady progress, we set weekly goals in each class, which students should strive to meet or exceed. This helps ensure they keep pace with their studies and avoid falling behind.

Does Acellus Academy accept transfer credits?

Credits earned while attending another high school or a college may be transferable. An official transcript will be required from each institution you are transferring credits from. Only credits with a grade of C- or greater are eligible for transfer. Acellus Academy reserves the right to decline the transfer of credit(s). After enrolling, parents can enter transfer credits into their student’s High School Education Plan and submit transcripts.
