Students meeting qualifying criteria in grades K‐7 can take advanced academic content in mathematics or English Language Arts through Single Subject Acceleration (SSA). This ensures opportunities for appropriate levels of academic challenge.
SSA allows students to show mastery of content in select elementary or middle school courses. Students who prove mastery do not have to take the course and may move on to the next level.
We accept SSA nominations during specific times of spring semester for the following school year. Please refer to the chart below to find which calendar your child’s school follows, then the corresponding nomination window.
