How We're Different

Marion County Acceleration Academies works in partnership with Marion County Public Schools to offer an alternative option for students who need more flexibility and support than what’s typically offered in traditional high schools. Each student receives a personalized learning plan with a flexible mix of online coursework, one-on-one coaching and social-emotional support. We design it all to work with your work and family obligations.

Our Academic Accreditation

Our approach to education isn’t just flexible, it’s backed by Cognia, the world leader in providing improvement and accreditation services to educational providers. Our Cognia accreditation means that students receive a high-quality, nationally-recognized education. Plus, students that attend an accredited school gain greater access to federal loans, scholarships, post-secondary education and military programs.

Preparing you For the Future

Our model helps to provide students with a Career and Life Coach who works one-on-one with them to explore and select the right post-graduate career path. We prepare our graduates for internships, college, military service, skilled trades, well-paying jobs, and more! Students can also participate in relevant, hands-on, and engaging Career and Technical Education programs coordinated by their Career & Life coach. In these programs, students can earn industry certifications, gain real-world experience, and graduate confidently knowing their next steps toward a successful life.
