Vision Statement

Where Student Scholars Discover Their Academic Passion

About ACE


We provide students with opportunities to become expert in a STEAM field of their choice.

What is STEAM?

STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, English, Arts, and Mathematics.   ACE believes in educating students in a liberal arts tradition, bringing skills from all areas to bear on learning.

ACE’s Mission is to 

  • make students college and career ready by providing pathways and opportunities for students to investigate and explore their field of study. 
  • mentor our students to make informed decisions regarding their future. 
  • give our students opportunities to become independent, creative, self-motivated, life-long learners and critical thinkers.
