Online Elementary School for 5th Grade Students

Self-paced, engaging, video-based courses that spark your child’s love for learning.


Fifth Grade Overview

Acellus Academy recognizes that fifth grade is a time of transition for most children. Because of this, we offer our fifth grade students an online curriculum that fosters their innate curiosity and challenges them to explore new areas of interest. Our experienced staff of teachers create courses that cultivate an exciting learning environment that helps students maintain the curiosity they had throughout elementary school and bring it into their middle school courses.

Fifth grade students can take courses in the core subjects of math, language arts and reading, science, and social studies. Elective courses are also available to fifth graders so that they can begin to explore potential interests that lead to hobbies, extracurricular activities, and courses of study in high school and beyond. Acellus Academy recognizes the importance of social and emotional learning, which is why we offer our Social and Emotional Learning courses. This course helps students develop healthy mental and physical health practices.

Acellus 10th Grade Courses include core classes, electives, and CTE.

Subjects Offered in Acellus Academy’s Online 5th Grade Program

Acellus Academy works with teachers to design courses that will keep students on track to reach significant milestones in their education. The following are important learning outcomes that fifth graders achieve before moving on to middle school courses.


  • Language Arts and Reading: Fifth grade students continue to grow their reading, comprehension, and writing skills by studying more complex literary texts. Students also gain more experience in writing personal narratives, essays, and stories. Lastly, students fine-tune their grammatical skills, enhance their vocabulary, and practice researching techniques.
  • Science: Grade 5 Science covers life, physical, and earth science through a variety of units. These units teach fifth graders about organisms, human body systems, plants, and ecosystems, as well as introduces matter, physics, and space. This course involves labs for each lesson that demonstrate these scientific concepts and allows students to see them come to life.
  • Mathematics: In Grade 5 Math, students practice the mathematical principles they learn early on in elementary school and apply them to more complex problems. Fifth graders also learn basic algebraic and geometric concepts to develop a strong mathematical understanding before taking middle school math courses.
  • Social Studies: Our fifth grade social studies course focuses on the culture and history of the United States. This includes the history of exploration, the Revolutionary War, Industrialization, World War I and World War II, and much more as it relates to the U.S. and its relations with the rest of the world.

    Filling Foundational Gaps for Student Success

    As students are progressing through a course, sometimes they lack the foundational skills needed to successfully complete the material. If students are stuck, Acellus analyzes which foundational concepts they need to review in order to master the grade level concepts they are struggling with. Vectored Instruction is then prescribed to fill in those gaps, going as deep as required to rebuild their foundational understanding, allowing them to move forward in their education. 

    Vectored Instruction fills in missing concepts.
