Excel Academy of Roseland

Excel Academy of Roseland offers an accelerated high school experience for students looking for a smaller, more personal setting, intensely focused on elevating social skills, emotional wellness, and academic success.

Our school aims to succeed by developing meaningful relationships with each student to understand their individual needs, challenges, and strengths. From there, we provide care, support, and counseling to address the challenges students are faced with outside of school, helping them to develop coping and problem-solving skills and guiding them on how to identify and implement solutions to help them focus on learning. When students feel safe, secure, protected, and valued, they become empowered to take charge of their education and future and can begin to fulfill their learning potential.

As an accelerated school of choice for students ages 15 to 21 who are behind in their studies, Excel Academy of Roseland offers an extended day, where students can earn up to 5 credits per semester and 10 credits per year, allowing students to graduate in 2.5 years or less. There is no tuition or enrollment fee to attend. Excel Academy of Roseland is dedicated to creating a challenging, academically rigorous, and safe environment for all students.
