As a parent, you are probably wondering what will be expected of you during your child's online education endeavor. If your child is enrolling in Accelerate Education as part of a public or private school, your role will be defined by that school. If, however, you are enrolling your child directly into Accelerate Academy, review the information below for what to expect while your child attends.

Elementary Students (K-5)
No elementary program is meant to be a stand-alone program. These young children need guidance from a learning coach. As their parent, you are in the best position to provide the support that they will need. Watch the short video below to learn what you should expect as a learning coach.

If you enroll your student in the Academy as a full-time student, you should expect to spend time on each core subject area daily.

The chart below provides a guideline for how much time to spend each day; however, you know your child best, so you can set a time that is appropriate for them to complete the tasks assigned each day.

Math 45 to 60 minutes daily
Social Studies 30 to 45 minutes daily
Sciences 30 to 45 minutes daily
Other (Art, Music) 30 to 45 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week
