Ninth Grade Overview

Acellus Academy’s online high school allows students to take courses at their own pace and earn a diploma upon completion of the graduation requirements. Our goal at Acellus Academy is to offer a curriculum that will ignite curiosity and excitement around learning that will carry students through the rest of their lives.

Ninth grade is a pinnacle time in a young student’s education as they transition to online high school. This period is a perfect time for students to take courses that allow them to explore interests that may lead to potential career opportunities. For this reason, Acellus Academy offers a wide variety of courses covering the core subjects of mathematics, language arts, science, and history and social studies, as well as electives in foreign languages, career and technical education, fine arts, and health.

Subjects Offered in Acellus Academy's Online 9th Grade Program

Acellus Academy works with highly-qualified educators to create courses that are appropriately challenging, while allowing students to progress through lessons at their own pace. We make sure every student reaches certain milestones before allowing them to move on to more difficult units within the courses.

To make sure that students are meeting certain requirements, we have established clear course objectives and learning outcomes for Acellus Academy high school students. Our high school course overview provides detailed objectives of all the courses that are available for ninth graders to take.

We offer advanced placement and honors courses for students who excel in a particular subject as well as resources for students who struggle with a concept or lesson.

9th Grade Course Structure

Acellus Academy courses involve video instruction, practice problems, reviews, and exams. Courses also include special lessons that are hands-on projects and assignments that enhance the learning experience. Writing assignments, research projects, and experiments are several examples of the special lessons that are integrated into lessons.

Every student has different learning techniques that resonate best with them, and they have special strengths that must be supported. Because of this, we provide each student with a personal learning experience through the Acellus Learning Accelerator. The technology is made up of a variety of tools, such as Prism Diagnostics and Vectored Instruction, that recognize gaps in a student’s background knowledge and give them extra assistance when necessary.

Students access courses, video lessons, and assignments through the Acellus App that includes a comprehensive student interface. This app allows students to participate in classes and complete coursework whenever they have Internet access.

Creating a High School Education Plan

We recommend that ninth grade students create a high school education plan. Creating a plan helps students select classes and ensures they are on track to completing the graduation requirements. The education planning process does not take much time and can be updated or edited if necessary. The plan outlines the student’s plan of study, graduation pathway, college and career planning, and tuition and fees.
