Who We Serve

How Can I Tell if Gifted Education Is Right for My Child?

Our Students

Traditional schools fall short in offering the level of flexibility needed to engage our children. At ACE Academy, we provide specialized coursework and opportunities specifically designed to challenge our students.

ACE Academy serves the whole child and we recognize that the gifts that someone brings to the classroom are so much more than just a score on a test. Our students bring the gifts of humor, kindness, compassion, empathy, and creativity – to name a few.

We embrace the term gifted and use gifted education research to guide our teaching and provide an exceptional educational experience to those we serve. So, who is it that we serve?

We serve students who need something more;

We serve students who want a voice in their education;

We serve students who positively contribute to our learning environments;

And we hope to have the privilege to serve your child at ACE very soon.

Diversity Statement

ACE Academy admits students regardless of ancestry, citizenship, ethnicity, family status, gender identity, gender expression, disability, race, color, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, or sexual orientation to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

It does not discriminate on the basis of ancestry, citizenship, ethnicity, family status, gender identity, gender expression, disability, race, color, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, or sexual orientation in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs, and athletic and other school- administered programs.

No Place for Hate Affiliation

ACE Academy participates in the Anti-defamation League’s No Place for Hate program, a program that combats bias and bullying and promotes diversity education as an integral part of the school curriculum. No Place for Hate schools “receive their designation by:

• Building inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and all students can thrive.

• Empowering students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message.

• Sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong (ADL’s No Place for Hate Resource Guide).”
