Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course. For example, a parent could nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics. Below are the nomination and testing windows for each calendar. Learn more at wakeacceleration.weebly.com.

|Track 1||April 15-28||May 6-12|
|Track 3||May 12-25||June 3-9|
|Track 4||May 12-25||June 3-9|
