The space design includes clear lines of sight, adaptive layouts, flexible seating and standing desks, multi-textured furniture, and communal seating.

Students are able to work wherever they are comfortable, and content coaches will come to them when the student has questions.

Our staff of certified teachers and mentors provide wrap-around support for students, who we call Graduation Candidates.

Students are scheduled to attend school during specific attendance blocks each day. All students are expected to attend for a minimum of 10 hours in person plus 10 hours virtually.

Acceleration Academies services are provided at no cost.

Laptops and headsets will be provided at the academies and students can check out a laptop when they want to work from home.
