Our Mission

The mission of ACCEL Day and Evening Academy is to connect to students’ gifts and passions through personalized learning pathways that build academic skills, professional mindsets, and social and emotional well-being, so they are prepared for college and careers. This mission is guided by five core values:

1. Achievement

Achievement underscores the belief that we can reach our goals through focus and hard work.

2. Collaboration

Collaboration reminds us that we can be our best and achieve the most when we work well with others. 

3. Care

Care emphasizes that we must show appreciation and concern for our community and fellow man. 

4. Empowerment

Empowerment means that we must take the initiative to give voice and powers to our interests in a responsible way. 

5. Lifelong Learning

Lifelong learning encourages students to seek learning opportunities inside and outside of school for the rest of their lives.




At ACCEL Day and Evening Academy we respect our students and understand that each of them has individual wants and needs. We believe that learning can only be fostered from a feeling of mutual respect, guidance and direction, and we do our very best to maintain those values in everything we do. Our unique teaching approach supplies our students with the proper support system that will lead them down the path to success.
