What is the ACS iAcademy

The ACS iAcademy is a complete virtual option that differs from the traditional brick-and-mortar school setting. The K-8 curriculum is provided through Acellus online courses. Virtual courses in grades 9-12 are available through three different platforms – Acellus, Odysseyware, and ACCESS. Standards-based content in mathematics, science, social studies, language and reading is provided in all grades. In addition, other electives or enrichment classes may be offered at all levels. At the secondary level, many electives are available beyond the required core, including courses such as advanced placement, foreign languages and career tech.
