Technology affects every aspect of our daily lives. Technology is the passport by which we explore, communicate, share stories, track success, and engage with others. It is at the heart of all we do.
At the Academy for Career Exploration (ACE), our mission is to inspire students to achieve their greatest potential by providing a supportive, customized learning experience that is the foundation for lifelong learning. Our vision is to help students identify and build on their interests. strengths, and opportunities for college and career success. ACE prepares students for the global economy by providing academic excellence and an unparalleled technology education.
ACE develops technology talent at the high school level by providing students with skills focused on the emerging Innovation Economy. We have three career pathways: Application Programming & Software Engineering (APSE), CISCO Networking & Cyber Security, and Data Science. Our students have the opportunity to graduate with more than valuable job skills; they also earn industry credentials and college credit. As a strengths-based school, we use the Gallup Clifton StrengthsFinder to help our students identify their innate talents and build on them.
We provide students like Esther, Elton, Jarchell and Joana with the tools they need to succeed in college and beyond. In addition to earning college credits and industry certifications, our students acquire the 4C's of 21st century skills: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Our students actively develop skills that are in demand by today's employers, so they will be prepared for the workforce of tomorrow.
