Benefits of the Advanced College Experience (ACE) Program

“The ACE program was awesome. Learning at a college level but still being able to stay in the comfortable high school environment was such a great experience. It’s a terrific way to encourage high school students to continue their education after graduation. Being able to do well in these college courses gave me the confidence in that college won’t be so scary and that I can succeed when I get there. I also loved how the ACE program gives you a jumpstart to college.”
