SINGLE SUBJECT ACCELERATION
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) is a practice through which students meeting qualifying criteria in grades K‐7 can take advanced academic content in mathematics or English/Language Arts (ELA) for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.
SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of content of an elementary or middle school course without having taken the course.
During specified nomination windows, parents could nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.
