Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) Program
The Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) program is a high school equivalency program for adult learners. It is delivered in class by Ontario’s community colleges and online by the College Sector Committee for Academic Upgrading through ACE Distance. The ACE program offers core and optional courses in communications, mathematics, the sciences, computers, and self-management/self-direction. ACE courses can be used to:
- meet college and apprenticeship program specific admission requirements;
- earn the ACE Certificate, a grade 12 equivalency; and
- refresh academic skills.
To receive an ACE Certificate, students are required to complete the communications course, one mathematics course plus any two other courses from the ACE course list. The ACE Certificate is recognized as an OSSD (grade 12) equivalent by Ontario’s community colleges and by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development.
ACE courses have been evaluated by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. The ACE Certificate is also recognized as an OSSD (grade 12) equivalent by a growing number of employers when hiring and promoting staff.
