What Others Are Saying
On rainy days like this, when I spend close to two hours on the road before I even start my day at work, I have a lot of time to think and question things. I always come to the same conclusion. I like my house but I would be OK with moving. I like my job but I could manage if I had to go somewhere else. I like Austin, but I could live in a different city or country. But I would never trade, for anything in this world, the smile on my daughter’s face every time I drop her off and pick her up from school. Thanks ACE Academy.
Now, our daughter not only excels in her academic studies and creative projects, but she also has tremendous self-esteem.

I love how excited my son is about learning. He is rarely, if ever, discouraged by trying something new academically. I feel his love of learning is encouraged and celebrated at school.
