Accelerated College Experience (ACE)

ACE is a program designed for students that provides them with the chance to earn an associate degree while still in high school. The program not only offers guidance and support to students, but also provides them with opportunity to make the most of their time and education.

Students can apply as sophomores and commit in the three-year program, which covers their junior and senior years as well as an additional year at Oakland Community College (OCC). During this period, students divide their time between their regular high school courses and college classes at OCC, allowing them to work towards obtaining both their high school diploma and a college degree simultaneously.
