End-of-Year Testing: SSA believes that it should be left up to each family to make a decision on if end-of-year testing is needed for the student(s), unless required by your state’s legal statutes.
Curriculum Options: With SSA, you can choose the curriculum that best suits your student and family. Families should select curriculum that fits your students' abilities, learning style, interests, and talents as well as their budget. SSA is committed to allowing families to structure their courses based on student ability. As such, if your student has an IEP, 504 plan, or diagnosed disability please let us know upon enrollment so that we can work as a team and plan accordingly for your student's success. SSA is affiliated with FLVS, which allows students to take free online courses via the FLVS Flex option if they choose. Additional curriculum options by grade level will be provided upon enrollment. If you would like to consult SSA as you select your curriculum for the academic year, a consultation fee of $40 per hour will apply (see our Fee Schedule). Curriculum is not included when enrolling in SSA.
