Welcome to Oakland ACE
(Accelerated College Experience)
Oakland ACE is an early college program for students in participating Oakland County districts. The program is designed for those facing challenges to college enrollment and success. Oakland ACE offers students the opportunity, guidance, and support to earn an associates degree, or up to 60 transferrable credits, while still in high school. Students who meet the eligibility criteria apply during the 10th grade and commit to a three-year program spanning grades 11, 12 and 13 (an added fifth year of high school). Splitting time between courses at their home high school and college classes at Oakland Community College, students work simultaneously toward their diploma and an associate degree. There is no cost to the students for tuition, fees, or books.
