• The Academy of Creative Expression will enhance a student's experience and exposure to the arts. ACE students will receive priority in scheduling fine arts classes, some of which are honors and Advanced Placement courses. Special guest speakers, presentations, and trips will be designed just for the Academy. Through connections with the local community and universities, seminars will be designed just for the ACE student on varying topics like creativity, patterns, inspiration, and careers in the arts.

    Students accepted into the Academy of Creative Expression will be required to complete five Fine Arts credits during their high school career.  These classes can range from an Introduction to Guitar to Honors Art Portfolio to Advanced Choir, allowing all ACE students to deepen their skills while broadening their exposure to new and challenging topics.
