Acellus Personal Finance Grant
Through a joint effort between Discover Card and the International Academy of Science, a special grant opportunity is available to help high schools set up a personal finance program.  Through this grant, Discover Card will cover the full cost of getting Acellus, except for the student licenses.  The International Academy of Science has again announced funding for student licenses for all districts qualifying for the Discover program.  Between the two grants, the program is fully funded.
Acellus is a highly tuned, highly refined learning program that enables teachers to match the right student with the right content at the right time.  Acellus is the only blended learning system that utilizes I2 (Intelligent Interaction), which technology enables it to cater the educational content to the individual skill set of each student through customized personal instruction.  The end result is that may students who were struggling and at risk of dropping out are able to fill in the gaps needed for success and, over a short period of time, gain back the confidence needed to succeed in school, the workforce, and life.
