Dream. Learn. Experience. Succeed.
ACCE is different from other high schools because it is … SMALLER
We opened September 7, 2004 with 153 entering ninth-grade students. During 2013, we will have more than 600 total students.
COLLEGE AND CAREER-FOCUSED…offering opportunities to explore post-secondary education at The Johns Hopkins University and Baltimore City Community College and career possibilities in local businesses, nonprofits and Baltimore City government agencies.
INDIVIDUALIZED…allowing students to progress at their own pace and judging their progress on their ability to demonstrate what they have learned. Smaller class sizes (average of 22 students) and a caring staff including advocates, mentors, and enthusiastic teachers ensure personal attention and support.
YEAR-ROUND…with two semesters from September to June and a 4-6 week summer program offering paid work experiences through YouthWorks. The school year includes time for credit recovery, internships, community service, and enrichment.
CHALLENGING…using a new research-based rigorous curriculum that will hone students’ abilities to be successful in high school and beyond.
