SAN DIEGO, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelerated Academics, Inc., a legally recognized, California-based private school satellite program (PSP) is now accepting high ability and twice exceptional students into its program which addresses educational and personal needs through an intensively differentiated online curriculum. This program acts as an umbrella for many K-8 homeschool families and is the brainchild of Dr. Jenelle Miller, a highly recognized national specialist in gifted education and Board member of the California Association for the Gifted (CAG).
"Our focus is the individual student and recognizes their personal and academic needs with intensively differentiated curriculum," commented Dr. Miller.
