Single Subject Acceleration
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.
Parents may request that we test their child for eligibility to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts or Mathematics by submitting a request during the appropriate window. Students for whom test requests have been received will be assessed at their school based upon grade level. Depending on grade level and subject, this could include a multiple-choice test and/or a writing sample.
The SSA Test Request Window for the 2024-2025 school year is April 1-12, 2024. Test requests may be submitted using this form, only during this window. Test requests will not be accepted outside of these dates.
Students who are appropriately nominated will be tested between April 22 and May 6, 2024.
Students who do not meet the criteria, who transfer to WCPSS after the testing window, or for whom Test Request forms are submitted after the window has closed will not be accelerated.
For more information, attend our Virtual SSA Parent Information Session at 5:30 p.m. on March 5, 2024 (the link will be sent to parents via email on the morning of the meeting, or visit the WCPSS AIG Single Subject Acceleration page here.
