SSA Nomination Info

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 their child take the test to determine if they show sufficient mastery to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts or mathematics.


Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) information can be found on the WCPSS website at    You may also learn more about Single Subject Acceleration by viewing this SSA Parent Information Meeting video and reviewing the Parent FAQs - Single Subject Acceleration for SSA document.
