ACE High School is a comprehensive high school for 10th - 12th grade students who are interested in a career in construction.
ACE focuses on academics (reading, writing, math and science) through the application of construction skills. Our goal: high school graduation, with the ability to pursue post-secondary training in any construction field from management, engineering, architecture, to the trades, such as plumbing, electrician, carpentry, etc., as well as immediate employment.
ACE meets all the requirements established by State of Nevada and standards set forth by the Washoe County School District. An ACE diploma is the same as any other public school diploma in Washoe County and will actually have more value within the construction industry.
ACE currently has 122 students enrolled and a faculty of seven top educators from the local area. All teachers have advanced college degrees, multiple credentialed areas of expertise and several years of experience. They are dedicated to the success of each and every student.
ACE students will build a house each year, performing all the work themselves. Proceeds from the sale of the house will go directly to the following year's program.
ACE is not an at-risk school or a dumping ground. However, students who don't do as well in traditional environment of "answering questions at the end of the chapter" may do very well in our hands-on and meaningful learning atmosphere. ACE is an opportunity for high school students to pursue a successful career in the construction industry that employs more than 7 million people in the United States and offers some of the most lucrative and widest assortment of professions, including design, management, skilled trades, human resources, planning, public relations, and many more.
Ace represents the future in education - a partnership with industry to provide better educational opportunities for our students, while simultaneously building a better workforce.
