Oakland ACE 2020

Accelerated College Experience

What is Oakland ACE?

Oakland ACE is an early college program that offers students the opportunity to earn an associates degree, or up to 60 transferable college credits, while still in high school. Instead of completing high school in four years, ACE students complete high school along with the ACE requirements in five years. The program is a three year commitment.
