Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop the skills, values, and agency required for ACCE students to succeed beyond high school.  All students at ACCE will be provided the foundational competencies and comfortability to choose the post-high school pathway that best meets their skills, interests, and passions.


By the end of 12th grade, all students at ACCE will develop positive relationships with peers, staff, and community members rooted in the five promises of the 100% Project (Commitment to Quality, Honor and Integrity, Gratitude, Contribution, and Perseverance).  Students will receive a comprehensive educational experience that prepares them with the competencies and attributes necessary for success in college and careers.  Experiences will include internship opportunities, rigorous coursework, hands-on learning, and extra-curricular activities that provide consistent exposure to college and career choices.

Bea Gaddy - Community Service 

Twenty-six ACCE students assisted with Bea Gaddy's annual Thanksgiving event. Students prepared more than 60 trays of green beans, yams, and corn! Many students expressed that they learned about teamwork, and perseverance, and loved having a "hands-on experience".  This meal definitely wouldn't have happened without them! A huge thank you to Mrs. Teneka Coffey and Ms. Kursten Pickup for connecting our students to this wonderful service learning opportunity.

Un enorme agradecimiento a la Sra. Teneka Coffey y a la Sra. Kursten Pickup por conectar a nuestros estudiantes con esta maravillosa oportunidad de aprendizaje-servicio.
