The ACCEL Day and Evening Academy is aiming to double its enrollment over the next year as it utilizes $1.5 million in grant funding to expand its current services to middle school students in Mobile.

ACCEL opened its doors in 2017 as Alabama’s first tuition-free charter school, with a mission that focuses on personalized educational pathways, more flexible scheduling options and a greater focus on students’ social and emotional well-being in addition to their academic achievements.
