entering high school are going to be
encountering much harder work and a
heavier work load than they did in middle
school. At this point in their academic
students must begin thinking about college.
Any teacher will tell you, the difference
an average student and an exceptional
student is often attitude. It is crucial
high school students to maintain the
proper attitude toward their learning
and a strong work
ethic. If students want to enter the
college of their choice in today's highly
competitive environment, it is essential
that they demonstrate steady high performance.
Class difficulty level in combination
with the grades students receive in
those classes is the number one aspect
of a student¡¯s college application that
admissions officers look at. Their class
level and grades are even more important
than their SAT scores. If students have
high SAT scores, but are taking low
level classes and/or have poor grades,
their chances of getting accepted at
a competitive school are not very good.
Accel helps students stay ahead and
achieve the highest grades in their
school classes. It is very easy to see
the immediate benefits of Accel¡¯s Math
Enrichment Program in school math classes.
Most students recognize the benefits
of the English Enrichment Program once
they enter their senior year or college.
It is also very important that parents
take an active roll in their children¡¯s
education and stay abreast of their
progress. Children are very influenced
by their peers at this time in their
lives. Parents need to know what their
children are doing in school and out
of school. Accel works with parents
and students to synthesize a healthy
and learning experience.
English Enrichment Program for grades
9 and 10 focuses on developing the
skills introduced in Intermediate-level
classes. Small classes are grouped by
ability level to
assure appropriate materials are being
taught. The main goal of these classes
is to provide the academic skills necessary
to do well on college entrance exams,
and in college classes. Accel recognizes
the need for students to be able to
read critically, and speak and write
articulately, which are often wholly
overlooked in high schools because of
the remedial needs of many students.
The students who have the ability to
excel are thwarted. A high school curriculum
that teaches one novel a semester simply
isn't giving these students enough.
The most successful students are those
who are well-read and actively involved
in their education. Accel's curriculum
offers challenging reading assignments,
abundant vocabulary practice, advanced
grammar and composition work, and opportunities
to develop public speaking and research
skills needed for their future work.
for high school students cover topics
such as advanced algebraic and geometric
concepts, various functions, and applications.
This program is especially beneficial
for students who want to keep up with
or stay ahead in their school classes
and prepare for a rigorous college curriculum.
Enrichment Program¡¯s goals are to instruct,
guide, and motivate students to become
passionate about fulfilling their educational,
personal and professional potential,
and reaching their goals. Furthermore,
Accel Academy is dedicated to serving
families and communities by challenging
and encouraging students to become productive
and responsible contributors to society.
