How it Works

Personalized Secondary

Personalized Secondary Path / 7th-12th Grade

In this path, students are educated in the independent study model, where the parent/guardian is the primary teacher, and the Excel Teacher of Record (ToR) oversees the student's education. Parents are able to choose from a selection of curriculum based on the student's needs (curriculum may include online and textbook based options). Once a month, the student, parent, and ToR will meet together to review the student's body of work and discuss the student's progress.

  • Independent study model
