Single Subject Acceleration

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. Only students who are currently enrolled and attending a WCPSS school during the open nomination and testing window are eligible to be considered for SSA.

  • Your child may be taking classes with peers who may be older.
  • Consider your child’s organizational skills and ability to focus. 
  • Can your child begin or complete projects by themselves?
