Recent studies indicate that teens:

  • Have different learning styles and learn at different rates
  • Were created with varying talents and academic potential
  • Must master specific development skills
  • Learn best through a focus/mastery learning approach
  • Increase mastery and retention through repetition and review

Differ greatly in their abilities to learn through auditory, visual, and kinesthetic/tactile stimuli. Master’s Ranch Christian Academy, through Acellus Academy, uses distinctive, individualized, multi-media software from grades 3-12 that specifically addresses their learning style.

Since children learn with varying learning styles at different rates, Acellus Academy provides placement assessments and designs a personalized educational plan for your child. Diagnostic testing reveals the developmental skill levels attained. Specific skills are prerequisite to the “learning to read,” such as sequencing, left-right coordination, color and shape recognition, and auditory and visual discrimination.

Children process information differently in varying stages of physical and cognitive development. Our curriculum emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills, deductive reasoning, and logical thinking to better prepare the students for college and success in life. Children gain mastery and understanding of academic concepts through different modalities. Some children are strong visual learners, but others learn best through auditory processing. Others are hands-on/tactile learners. Acellus Academy provides a curriculum that best meets all learning styles.
