About the Academy

The International Academy of Science is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that has been advancing education and scientific research for over 25 years.  The Academy develops Acellus courses which are used by millions of students at K-12 schools in all 50 states and worldwide.  The Academy also operates graduate and post graduate applied education programs through the Institute of Science and Technology.


The Academy develops and maintains Acellus courses which are used at K-12 schools in all 50 states.  Through grants and other funding sources, the Academy is able to use master teachers, who are experts in their field of knowledge, to develop the Acellus courses.  These grants also cover most of the costs that are associated with creating and maintaining the courseware.  This allows the Academy to provide Acellus courses to schools at a fraction of the cost that most online courseware providers charge.
