Accelerated Schools

Dedicated to excellence in education through independent study, using individually prescribed instructional and motivational systems, our program is designed to quickly improve a student's performance in every academic area.
Students progress so rapidly that most who start below grade level are effectively doing superior work after one or two semesters.
All courses include supplemental or enrichment materials so students can experience continuous challenge and success.
We provide effective learning environments where students learn and practice procedures and skills of Accelerated Thinking while mastering required curriculum areas.
