Achieving a College Education (ACE)
ACE is designed to help students make a smooth transition from high school through the community colleges on to a university and completion of a bachelor’s degree. ACE recruits high school students in their sophomore year to participate in the program during their high school junior and senior years. ACE students are enrolled in concurrent college courses as high school juniors and seniors and can earn up to 24 college credits by the time they graduate from high school. See the most recent ACE progress report for information regarding ACE student demographics, high school graduation rates, ACE program retention, ACE students transferring to college, and ACE student achievements of certificates and college degrees:
High School Students Earning College Credit while still in High School!
Dual enrollment is an opportunity for high school students to get an early start on college. Dual enrollment courses allow students to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously during regular school hours at their high school. The credit earned may be transferred to a community college or university upon high school graduation.
