Transitioning to Acellus Academy Mid-Year

Learn how we transition students with courses in process at other schools

Acellus Academy makes it possible for students to transition late in the school year and still complete courses on time, prior to the start of the following school year.

Acellus accelerates learning by quickly moving students through content they have already learned while giving them time to master new concepts. Acellus is capable of rapidly identifying student proficiency in a subject and quickly advances them to the next lesson in cases where the student demonstrates that they understand the material.

We recommend that parents complete the following steps when transitioning a student into Acellus Academy mid-year:

1. Enroll Your Student in Comparable Courses

Parents should enroll their student in classes that are comparable to courses their student was taking at their previous school. Acellus Academy offers a wide variety of courses that range in grade levels K-12.

The Acellus Academy curriculum is standards-based so many of its core courses are comparable to the courses offered at other accredited public and private schools.

During the enrollment process, parents will have the ability to choose their student’s courses and can select the classes that are most comparable.

2. Set Progress Goals for Timely Completion

To help students stay on track and finish their courses on time, parents can customize weekly progress goals for each course. Since each course is self-paced, parents have the freedom to determine the schedule and pace that best suits their student.

Some parents prefer to have all courses completed by late spring while other parents allow their student to take additional time during summer. Once the weekly goal has been customized, the student will be informed of how many steps they need to complete per week to be on track.

3. Accelerate Through Lessons Your Student Already Mastered

Once your student is enrolled, the Acellus system will begin by reviewing concepts to find what your student already knows, then quickly advances on to concepts they haven’t mastered yet. This process allows students to remain on track for completing courses by the end of the year while addressing potential holes in crucial foundational knowledge.

If your student is significantly behind or has numerous gaps in foundational understanding, Acellus Academy uses powerful technologies called Prism Diagnostics and Vectored Instruction which identify holes in background knowledge and immediately responds with customized instruction.

Do You Plan to Transition back to Traditional School?

Some parents turn to online schooling as a temporary measure to help a student overcome challenges and remain on track.

If you plan on returning to a traditional school, your student’s official Acellus Academy transcript will list all of your student’s completed courses and grades. Instructions on how to request an Acellus Academy transcript can be found here.

Acellus Academy is fully-accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), a regional accreditation agency that accredits thousands of public and private schools.

Since every school has their own requirements regarding transfer credits, we recommend contacting the school in advance to confirm that the courses you intend to enroll your student in will transfer.

Professionally Filmed, Highly-Engaging Video Lessons

Taught by some of America’s greatest teachers, Acellus courses incorporate professionally filmed video lessons with some of the best equipment available in the cinematic industry. The combination of incredible footage, outstanding teachers, and content that makes learning relevant to the real-world, makes each lesson captivating and interesting – igniting students’ passion for learning.
