ACES: Alternative Choices for Educational Success
If you would like to be considered for enrollment, please fill out this google form.
ACES Academy is a learning community focused on preparing students for individual success.
ACES Academy provides students the opportunity to work with our staff and personalize their learning allowing for greater opportunities for success. Using Blended Learning Instruction and online learning, teachers infuse technology into daily classroom lessons providing greater flexibility in connecting students to our digitally-wired world. Additionally, students have a variety of options to earn credit outside of the classroom including: work based learning, Career and Technical Education options, credit recovery, volunteering, and dual enrollment with Alpena Community College.
To help support students in their learning journey, each student is connected with a staff member who will become their mentor and “go to” person as they plan their roadmap towards graduation. Mentors connect with parents and families using a variety of communication tools to help build a solid bridge between home and the ACES community. From our orientation program to graduation, our support team works closely with the students and their families to help overcome the barriers that often interfere with student success.
