"Acellus Academy has changed the way my daughter learns. The teachers at Acellus are amazing! They continually find new and exciting ways to enhance the learning experience! I have watched my child go from average grades to all A's in just three short months! She no longer is satisfied with just passing a class. Now she wants to soar! She gets excited about school now!!
I can not thank you enough Acellus for giving our family the opportunity to be part of this amazing program! The teachers you have employed and the many classes that you offer has changed our lives!"

"After three years of homeschooling my son, we have gone through so many different curriculums to find the right fit...
The way this program teaches and goes over the subject again if it was not understood is amazing! My son's reading comprehension was way below average. I now read the stories to him in the ninth grade Language Arts class, and there are many lessons on the one story. By the time he is done with the story, he comprehends it one hundred percent.
I want to thank you so much for making this affordable and having the most wonderful teachers! This is such an amazing program for kids that have physical disabilities, learning disabilities, or even just want to learn more at home. WE FOUND THE PERFECT FIT!!"

"My daughter has ADHD and some reading comprehension struggles. Typical “textbook” style curriculum drains our brains and enthusiasm. After finding Acellus, not only is she ENJOYING learning, but she is actually learning so much! How do I know? Because my 14yo is talking to us at the dinner table about American History, and in the kitchen she is explaining Physical Science, and she is reading Shakespeare because it is cool! We are so impressed!!
She is learning to take notes, which is incredibly important to success in higher education, especially for an auditory learner! The lectures are clear and concise AND interesting. I also think that Acellus has encouraged her to be more independent in her learning and placed a level of responsibility for her own success on her shoulders that she didn’t fully embrace before because she was often overwhelmed with the magnitude of the tasks ahead of her. Overall, I am observing that Acellus has a systematic and organized approach of moving the student forward without overwhelming them, and that is a feature that is beneficial to my daughter."

Acellus is a computer-based learning system that has changed online education as we know it today. Acellus is the only online learning system that utilizes I2 (Intelligent Interaction), which technology enables it to cater the educational content to the individual skill set of each student through customized, personal instruction. The end result is students that were struggling, and at risk of dropping out, soon are able to fill in the gaps needed for success, and over a short period of time gain back the confidence needed to succeed in school, the workforce, and life.
Acellus courses are taught via tiered video instruction – each course is broken up into individual concepts, and each concept has multiple videos available. Acellus is able to customize the course to the individual pace and level of each student. As the student progresses through the course, every response is recorded and monitored, and through I2 technology, personalized help videos are delivered right when the student needs assistance in a concept.
Acellus courses are taught by some of America's greatest teachers. These instructors have expertise in conveying knowledge, and even "hard to grasp" concepts, through video instruction. Through the combination of excellent instruction and immediate feedback, students are quickly able to start experiencing success within their coursework.
In Acellus, we create special problems for the purpose of identifying where a student has a hole in their background knowledge that's making it hard for them to learn a particular concept. This special kind of a problem in Acellus we call a "Swiss Cheese Problem," because it helps us find holes in a student's understanding.
Acellus has launched a new initiative to create courses that are "five star" in the way that they help students grasp and master concepts. The lessons are filmed in a diversity of locations with only the best and most qualified instructors, keeping them fun and exciting so that both students and onsite teachers will rate the courses as 5 stars.
Students are able to access Acellus courses through the intuitive student interface. After logging in, they are able to select from their list of classes. Acellus takes them right to their current position in the course they have been enrolled in, and automatically marks their attendance for the class.
Students can see the progress they are making in each class, and their score for each class. The Acellus messaging tool allows students to easily interact with their parent. Students are able to access Acellus via the web, allowing them to work wherever they have Internet access.
Special help videos are integrated into the course content for concepts students have difficulty with. These videos not only help the student master the content, but provide the student with "real world" scenarios, creating a meaningful context for obscure concepts.SAMPLE HELP VIDEO: Understanding Probability
Students can work independently and receive personalized instruction to help them master each concept.
Watch your student's progress real-time from any mobile device or computer.
Acellus automatically compiles scores, progress, and hours worked into printable reports.
Acellus is the fastest growing learning system in America. The program is used by over one million students at schools in every U.S. state.
