Academic Acceleration

Liberty Local Schools believes that all students should be challenged and supported to meet their full potential. This may be achieved by giving students access to curriculum that is more commonly provided to older students.

Early Admission to Kindergarten:  The practice of admitting a student to kindergarten who has not yet reached the typical age at which students are admitted to kindergarten for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.

Whole-Grade Acceleration:   The practice of assigning a student to a higher grade level than is typical given the student’s age on a full-time basis for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.

Subject Acceleration:  The practice of assigning a student to a higher grade level than is typical given the student’s age for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities in one or more subject areas.

Early High School Graduation: The practice of facilitating completion of the high school program in fewer than four years for the purpose of providing earlier than typical access to post-secondary educational opportunities.
