With an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of our students, staff, and administrators, ACCEL is following the recommendation from Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman and is suspending on-campus school services. We expect to re-open the campus after April 30th. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates on our Facebook page and here at ACCEL'S COVID-19 page as well. Please visit for continued updates, facts and to learn about the measures you can take to remain healthy. Thank you.

ACCEL Adult Services and The BISTÅ Center will remain open during this school break.

Academic Services

Our school and vocational programs serve individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder, behavioral disorders and cognitive disabilities. Programs emphasize students’ strengths and empower students to build academic skills while developing strong social competencies. ACCEL is nationally accredited by the National Commission for the Accreditation of Special Education Services (NCASES).

Our campuses and satellite schools provide Model Classroom programs, evidenced-based practices and individualized educational plans linked to the Common Core curriculum and Arizona’s College and Career Readiness standards. Using a collaborative team approach, we provide our students with a highly structured learning environment, individualized instruction, and small class size. ACCEL’s low students to staff ratios provide the needed support to increase goal accomplishment and individual success while building student self-esteem.

Technology is fully integrated into the instructional programs. Each classroom is equipped with computers and Smart boards which maximize opportunities for students to interact with technology using a variety of motivational and instructional educational software. Related services are interwoven with the instructional program and delivered within the classroom setting whenever possible. A team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts and highly trained staff work closely with teachers and classroom support staff to meet student behavior goals.
