The Accelerations Difference

At Accelerations, we believe it is never too early to start learning. Our little 4 and 5 year olds can read, write sentences and small paragraphs, and utilize math concepts for computation and problem solving. However, our success is not in how far we go beyond boundaries. Our gratification comes in how confident our students become and how well they understand what we are teaching them. They do not just know how to add; they know what adding means.

From the age of 4 to about 6th grade, we accelerate in reading, writing and math. Even if you are strong in one of these areas, we want to continue to build even more strength in something you enjoy and are good at. Feeling really good about your strengths will give you the courage to take risks at strengthening your weaknesses. From middle school through high school, students come to Accelerations for help in specific subject areas such as biology, chemistry, geometry and so on. After each private or small group session, we update parents on their child's progress via email. Finally, we offer specialty classes like the good old SSAT and SAT. It is amazing that test strategies are 80% of what you need to know for tests like that. Read on to find the course that is right for you!

Accelerations focuses on strengthening skills of the previous grade level and accelerating into what is coming in the year ahead.

PK-2nd

Our lower elementary program works on the basic skills while accelerating into higher level concepts

  • Reading - Students will focus on the pleasure that reading provides while developing their comprehension, phonics and word attack skills.
  • Writing - Improvement comes through experiences in oral and written expression. Spelling and grammar in conjunction with writing make up a major part of this curriculum.
  • Mathematics - Math skills are strengthened by studying number concepts and relationships. The curriculum includes perfoming fundamental operations and solving story problems.

3rd-12th

For the upper elementary students, we expand their understanding of the basic skills to achieve a higher level of thinking. The middle school and high school classes are tailored to the students specific subject needs as they sharpen their skills and accelerate through their classes.

  • Reading - Students work on improving their reading comprehension skills along with test taking strategies.
  • Writing - Students begin with pre-writing drafting and revision of topic writing. They will be taught how to organize their thoughts and ideas, use different word choices and improve the fluency of each paragraph.
  • Mathematics - Basic skills will be improved and practiced while learning to perform problem solving at higher levels of thinking.
  • Pre-Algebra-Algebra II - The idea is to master basic skills needed to be successful in these classes or "clean-up" on concepts from the previous year. Then the focus is on topics such as solving for variables, graphing, functions and quadratic equations.
  • Geometry - Students are introduced to proofs, relationships of lines, angles and similarity and then shown how to apply the knowledge that will be taught in their class.
  • Other Subjects as necessary - This includes social studies, calculus, trigonometry, biology, chemestry, and physics.
