“Invest in yourselves…
You don’t need to have a big wallet to invest in yourself because you can get it with ‘sweat equity.’ You can earn it! The way you invest in yourself and the potential of your future is the way that you apply yourself to learn.”
– Roger Billings
Inspired by his own mentor, Bill Lear, the Roger Billings Mentoring Program was developed as a way to “give back,” supporting thousands of students with mentoring guidance through Science L!VE as well as helping cover student tuition costs. Learn More About the Roger Billings Scholarship »
These mentoring forums are something that have personally helped me and is something I love so much and have come to appreciate. I love the amount of work and dedication that is put into it. Also knowing that it is something that Mr. B created for our own benefit makes me very happy. It’s a very kind and generous thing to do and I love it. Thank you.
I would really like to thank you for creating Acellus and for your talk. Your message is truly inspiring and motivates me as a parent to expect more from my children, to create for them the right environment to study and to grow and develop in order to change the world in the future. Finding Acellus and signing my daughter up for the program is the best thing that happened this year. I am sure it will open up the doors to new horizons for Sofia. You are doing such an important job by providing kids from different backgrounds with such amazing opportunities. We will continue watching your talks!
Thank you for doing your talk. Thank you for inspiring the world to do things that have never been done before. You have helped me to do so many things and me and my family want to say THANK YOU! I believe that Acellus can change the world for good, Acellus is amazing!
I really love Acellus, when I started, it was really the first time I was really engaged and really excited about school and learning in a long time. I plan on continuing to use Acellus until I graduate, and hopefully accomplish great things in my future.
We heard about Acellus through a friend whose daughter used the program. You are definitely reaching people. We have only been using Acellus for a week and it has been such a blessing for our family. My son loves being able to learn at his own pace. Thank you for this opportunity.
I am very impressed not just with the quality of the material presented here but the quality of human beings working here. I did not know who Acellus was at heart! I am happy and proud to be part of this organization…

Your Wednesday night class is so interesting. My grandparents can’t wait for Wednesday night. We watch it as a family. You are teaching them things they didn’t know.
Thank you so much for all the work you do to provide us with the best education. Since the pandemic started my parents did not want to send us back to school and they didn’t know what they were going to do. One of my sister’s friend’s mom suggested this program to us and we love it. It is so much better than what we did in our previous school. It’s so easy to understand and the work is just the right amount. We are so thankful that we found this program. I’m in my last year of school and I’m going to be graduating in a couple of months.

Due to the pandemic my school had been forced to do online classes. Some family friends recommended Acellus to us and gave us very good references; so we decided to take the risk. This has been the best decision we have made; I have learned much faster, it makes me want to learn more, I have maintained good grades, my expectations about my future have changed, I am being able to achieve more. My parents are happy with Acellus and I’m really happy too.

I am looking forward to discussing this week’s Science L!ve with my son! This week has been a discouraging week for parents as they find out reopening plans for schools. As I sat on last night’s Board of Education meeting, I cannot tell you how happy I am that my son is receiving a quality education through Acellus. You saved us from distance learning last year. And I am grateful we are continuing my son’s education with you. At the dinner table tonight, he told me he doesn’t want to return to public school. You may have my son until high school as a student until he graduates from high school. Thank you!
I have been with Acellus Academy for 2 years now, and I have been inspired by Dr. Billings and Dr. Angel to do better in my life and academics. Currently, I’m 18 years old and I have a hard time learning certain concepts. But Dr. Billings has helped me with that. He has inspired me so much that I feel like I can do anything that I am capable of. Some people have doubted me. It is much appreciated that you inspired me. I’m almost ready to graduate from this wonderful school! Thank you for making my learning experience more exciting! I really enjoy the videos.
Liberty S. (Student)
Dr. Billings: You always amaze me with your knowledge! I like the fact that you show how much you love sharing your knowledge, teaching us, and empowering us. Thank you for never being boring, and most especially always being genuine. Acellus Academy is genuine because it was born from a man who is genuine.
I just want to say thank you for using a lot of your time to answer all of our questions, I imagine that you use up a lot of your time already so doing this shows how much you care about all of us.

The Art of Teaching Over the Internet
By Dr. Roger Billings, Chairman
Acellus Learning System
Teaching students over the Internet is quite a different experience than teaching in the traditional classroom setting. When teacher and students are separated by a network, it is easy for students to feel ignored and adrift in their studies – as though no one is there to help them if they get stuck. This paper discusses these challenges and how to use the special learning resources Acellus provides to help the virtual teacher effectively teach at a distance.

5 Reasons to Integrate STEM into Online Learning
By Roger Billings
Students need STEM–and a strong STEM learning background will carry them from high school to a high-tech workforce. As more and more fields require technical knowledge, it is a good idea to equip our young learners with basic STEM skills early on. With online schools, it is invaluable to start teaching these concepts at a young age, which is why STEM curriculum is now being introduced at the elementary level.
