Advanced Career Experience (ACE)

The ACE (Advanced Career Experience) is a program that provides on-the-job training to our 12th grade students.  Participants increase their knowledge and develop occupational competencies while receiving school credit.


Each year local employers, (Business Partners) host students in various exciting career related positions increasing student employability skills.  These Business Partners are an important part of the educational process, and their support is greatly appreciated.
