Ashland County Community Academy (2009)


“To support, respect, and hold accountable all students on their journey toward graduating by committing to the effective implementation of high-quality, aligned curriculum, authentic learning opportunities, and technology integration.”



Ashland County Community Academy is a conversion community school designated as a dropout prevention recovery (DOPR) school.

ACCA students benefit from a standards-based education delivered by highly-qualified teachers just as they would from their resident school district.  ACCA pioneers online and "blended" learning models.  Smaller  class sizes and more individualized, tailored instructional approaches allow students who have been unsuccessful in a traditional high school setting the opportunity to learn and ultimately to graduate.

ACCA is a non-profit community school that provides alternative education options for students in grades 7-12 from Ashland, Medina, Holmes, Wayne, and surrounding counties.

Students benefit from a standards-based education that integrates small class sizes and a personalized approach that is designed to meet their individual needs.

ACCA students can take advantage of several educational options including traditional classroom based instruction, blended learning, and work study experiences.
