The path to success begins at ACE!

The path to success begins at ACE!

The Academy for Classical Education (ACE) is the result of purposeful planning envisioning an opportunity for students to take part in a holistic, educationally challenging, academic environment that celebrates personal responsibility and accountability. Learning is the top priority at ACE and teaching time is protected so that every ACE student can take advantage of a rigorous and engaging curriculum. Academic success is a point of pride for students, teachers and staff members at ACE. From Kindergarten to 12th grade, students are recognized for their accomplishments and resolutely cheer for and with one another as achievements are garnered.

ACE was designed to be a place where teachers can teach and students will learn. This sense of purpose and focus is carried by ACE students into the academic classroom as well as the performing arts, the visual arts and athletics. ACE students understand the importance of goal setting and planning and this understanding enables students to work through adversity, learn from failure and persevere until success is met. Opportunities for learning and growth abound at ACE for all students through academic and enrichment classes. Older ACE students frequently interact with younger students in the halls and in the classrooms enabling the younger students to envision themselves as the people they will one day be.

Daily students recite the ACE Declaration, declaring that they will be the best version of themselves. Just as ACE was designed with purpose and vision, each ACE Student begins their day with purpose and vision. WE ARE ACE!
