Creating an Education Plan

Creating an Education Plan

The best way to determine which courses your student needs to take is to create a High School Education Plan. This tool helps you to map out a plan of study based on your student’s career goals and interests. This option is available once the student is enrolled or is 13+.

If the student has completed credits through another school, the transcript(s) can be uploaded during this process.

Please note, the education plan will not affect the student’s active course list. To make a change to this, see Add/Remove a Course

Once you have signed in as a parent through the Acellus App. , select “Manage Account”.tutorial-updatepayment

Then, click on “Create a Plan” under your student’s information.  (This option will not appear for students who are not at least 13.)


Follow the steps to enter in your student’s grade and goals/interests. Then you’ll be able to choose a pathway for graduation. (The system will suggest an option based on the information you provided earlier.)

If you plan to transfer credits from another school, you'll need to enter the school's information. (A transcript will be required to transfer credit.) If you do not plan to transfer credit you can skip this step.

Once you have added the school's information, you can add each credit.  (Only credits with a grade of C- or greater (or 70% and above) are eligible for transfer.)
Please enter this information carefully, details for each credit MUST match the transcript from the previous school. 

Once you've entered the information and checked to make sure it matches the transcript, click submit.  After you've added all of the transferring credits continue to the next page the upload the transcript. Here you will be required to confirm and certify the credits you've imported.

Now you're ready to set up the Plan of Study. This will help you map out what courses your student needs for graduation, including any transferred credits.

Once you have finished the Education Plan you'll be able to track the student's Progress Towards Graduation. The Education Plan can also be updated as needed.
