ACE students earn college credit while in high school.

ACE

Calling All High School Sophomores!

When you’re accepted into the ACE program you get to take college level classes (based on placement test scores) completely tuition-free! You can earn up to a year’s worth of college credits by the time you graduate high school. You pay for textbooks, get yourself to and from Glendale Community College main campus, and commit to successfully completing the program.
