Accelerated College And Career Transition (ACCT) Program

What is ACCT and how does it work?
ACCT (AC2T) is a blended learning program incorporating independent study, individualized instruction and technology to students ages 16-24 with a unique opportunity to earn a high school diploma. Students are assigned courses and coursework based on transcript evaluation and demonstrated competencies. Students are responsible for meeting with teachers and completing required course work. Students complete the majority of their coursework independently and have access to the AC2T study centers when they need assistance. Work is submitted weekly, as scheduled by the teacher. Students must make adequate academic progress to remain in the program.
Whether you are low on credits or a few credits short, AC2T can be your pathway to graduation and a high school diploma!
