A.C.E. Academy Philosophy

 

A.C.E. Academy philosophy is that each child is a unique individual who needs a safe, secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is our desire to help scholars meet their fullest potential by not placing limits on them through an environment that is implements a comprehensive curriculum, supports risk-taking, invites a sharing of ideas and give students the opportunity to create their own future. By integrating entrepreneurial skills through project-based learning into the traditional standardized state requirements our students will develop critical and creative thinking skills as early as kindergarten. These skills quickly build students’ self-esteem with a culture of academic excellence. At A.C.E. Academy, you can expect to find a community hub for learning that fosters self-discovery where students generate ideas and set goals, have ownership in the curriculum, motivated to work hard and master the skills necessary to reach their goals. A.C.E. Academy encourages scholars to develop a deep love and respect for themselves, others, and their environment by fostering an open sharing of ideas and a judicious approach to discipline. Through our creative teachers and administrators who are passionate about education, scholars brilliant minds are cultivated as their launching pad that catapults them to reach past what they see and reach for what they can imagine.         

 

A.C.E. Academy Mission

A.C.E. Academy will equip students from all backgrounds to succeed in the college and career of their choice by driving academic excellence, developing strong character, and instilling  an entrepreneurial mindset.

 

At A.C.E. Academy, we believe that all children can learn and that most children are developmentally hampered by the limits placed on them through others. At A.C.E., our job is to erase those limits and instill within our students the skills necessary to succeed.

An A.C.E. Academy education builds self-confidence and self-motivation—skills that are necessary for life success. Our entrepreneurial emphasis provides a great medium to connect the traditional core subjects to everyday life by providing our students with hands-on activities and projects that build the foundation for:
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Personal finance
  • Goal setting and time management
  • Creative thinking skills
  • Career Exploration
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Creative Expression
  • Marketing and sales
  • The value of community
  • Collaboration
  • Ethics
  • Respect
  • Negotiation

We believe that children who learn to plan for success are better equipped to rise above challenges, peer pressure, and bad choices.
