ACE IT stands for Accelerated Credit Enrollment in Industry Training. ACE IT is a dual credit program offered jointly by School District 82 and other post secondary institutions including Northwest Community College. You can check out the N.W.C.C. information page by clicking here.
Simply put, if you are enrolled in the ACE IT program you will not be attending regular classes. You will be taking a foundations program in the trade of your choice, usually at another location, while receiving high school and college credit. Think of it as a two for one deal!!
It is important that you speak to your counselor before applying to ACE IT as in some cases you might need to take courses such as English 12 in your grade 11 year in order to be eligible to graduate.
