The ACE program is a three-year Early College program for students in participating Oakland County high schools.

  • Students begin their three-year program in 11th grade.

  • During 11th and 12th grades, students share time between high school and Oakland Community College (OCC) Classes.

  • Students enjoy an added 13th year as a full-time student at OCC, completing their high school diploma and potentially earning an associate degree.

  • Students attend class one time per week with Oakland ACE staff on OCC's campuses. Students learn college success skills and receive personalized support from our Early College Success Coordinator.

There is no cost to students or families for tuition, student fees, books or materials.

Oakland ACE program partners with Oakland Community College (OCC) to bring Early College opportunities to our students.

Each OCC campus dedicates an OCC counselor who is available to work with our students. OCC's Academic Support Centers are important resources for our students. Students who participate in free tutoring at ASCs find the support highly useful.
