Academically Challenging  Curriculum to Enhance Learning (ACCEL) options are available to Liberty Pines Academy students who demonstrate superior performance on Florida’s Comprehensive Assessment Tests (4’s and 5’s)  and above standard grades (B’s and A’s) on end of year report cards.

High performing  learners will be clustered within classrooms to receive differentiated instruction.  Students will select tiered assignments which require in depth-inferences and applications which go beyond what was taught. Differentiated assessments will require students to generate and test hypothesis, read complex informational text and then practice and deepen knowledge.
