Individual Subject Acceleration

Students at Shaker Heights Schools may be assigned to a subject/course in a higher grade level for the purpose of providing accelerated learning opportunities.

The path to individual subject acceleration is a multi-step process that includes input from parents/guardians and educators. To view the acceleration process flowchart, click here.

Referrals for students to be evaluated for acceleration should be made directly to the building principal. Parental permission for additional assessment will be obtained by building principal or designee. Our team will begin reaching out to families who are interested in or have questions about acceleration opportunities in Shaker Heights Schools beginning in mid-August.
