Under the Scholarship Program, students who enroll participate in weekly lectures which are broadcast live over the Internet. These sessions teach the importance of education and help students to understand how knowledge can empower their future.
Research shows that students who attend Roger Billings’ weekly lectures improve academically and develop positive attitudes about their schoolwork. Using examples from his own career and life, Roger Billings motivates and inspires students to achieve their best and believe that they can make a difference.
Students in grades K-5 are not required to watch the weekly lectures in order to enroll under the scholarship.
Students who are willing to commit to attending the live lecture over the Internet each Wednesday are eligible to enroll in Acellus Academy at the special Scholarship Program Tuition rate. In the event that the student is not attending the weekly lectures, the Scholarship Program Tuition will not be renewed.
