PLYMOUTH, Minn., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 2016 will bring with it some exciting new changes for Excel School—an accredited online high school based in Plymouth, Minnesota. Excel High School serves both high-school age students and adults seeking an accredited online high school diploma.
The school's latest endeavor fits right in with its goal of continuously improving its educational materials and curriculum. With the pending upgrade to Systems Accreditation status, Excel Education will have the opportunity open 3 new high schools to better serve the needs of their growing student population.
In preparation for beginning the Systems Accreditation process, Excel High School is currently revamping its entire curriculum to meet the latest national standards. In part, this involves a move to a video based lecture program that incorporates a variety of new learning elements into the school's online lessons. This creates a more interactive, challenging, engaging fun learning environment for Excel students.
"Excel High School is pleased to launch our new online high school curriculum in 2016. The school system has invested significant financial and human resources into developing Excel's new curriculum. Excel will deliver engaging and interactive online courses that will prepare students for a 21st-century learning experience.
Excel believes that when learning is enjoyable, better outcomes are achieved. Our job is to ensure that teaching and learning happens. By engaging and exciting our students, we motivate them to succeed. Excited and engaged students helps us ensure they succeed in high school and beyond," says Dr. Mark Ulven, President of Excel High School.
Already regionally accredited by AdvancED and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, the Excel High offers online courses leading to a high school diploma to students in all 50 U.S. states. The school also enjoys the dual distinction of being recognized by both the Virginia Board of Education and the Virginia Council for Private Education (VCPE) as a fully accredited private school in the state of Virginia.
The application for additional accreditation from AdvancED will help Excel High continue its decades-long tradition of utilizing the most modern technological delivery system to provide students with the skills they need for educational and life success.
