Thousands of incarcerated adults and juveniles leave the nation’s prisons and detention facilities each year. While many successfully transition back into their communities becoming productive members of society, many others commit new crimes and end up being re-incarcerated.
Providing a Path Forward to a Successful Future
Lack of education and skills has been shown to be one of the key reasons why ex-prisoners don’t succeed. This makes education a crucial service provided in correctional facilities across the Nation. The challenge however, is providing education to a transient population with varying levels of mastery in a restricted environment.
Providing education to youths incarcerated in juvenile correctional facilities has been linked to lower the rates of recidivism and offer a better reintegration upon leaving detention. Acellus provides these facilities with an educational solution that allows inmates access to any course they may need, while also differentiating the course of study to their individual skill set and level.
Targeted Instruction at Every Skill Level
Acellus offers courses in every core area, and at every level, to make it possible for inmates to have the instruction they need to succeed. Courses are available K-12 in all core areas, as well as GED preparation, Career and Technical Education courses, and special elective offerings. Along with providing a diverse and flexible suite of courses, Acellus courses are also tailored to the pace of the individual learner. This is possible through the technology of Prism Diagnostics™, and the impact of the customized instruction that is delivered at the moment the deficiency is identified.
