Overview

Our ACE Academy is designed to expose youths to the wide variety of career opportunities in aviation and aerospace. Our program offers students a hands-on experience of learning the aviation history, fundamentals of aerodynamics, the role of government in aviation and the many careers available in the aerospace field.

The ACE Academy is a multi-day event for middle and high school students that have a general interest in learning about aviation. The goal of ACE Academy is to expose students to the many different careers in aviation. We also aim to show them the practical application of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. By the end of the program, we hope that the participants will have a wider horizon of the many career opportunities available to them. We challenge our students to strive for excellence.

Admission Requirements

Admission is offered to boys and girls from 13-18 years old who have an interest in learning about aviation. Applicants are competitively-ranked based on age, cumulative GPA, and essay.

Students must be physically capable of participating in all activities. High standards of behavior and self-discipline are expected and students must abide by all academy regulations. If you have any questions, please contact your ACE Academy Director.

Application Process

Applications must be received by the deadline noted above to be considered. Because capacity is limited, only completed applications will be considered.

Incomplete registrations will not be considered for admission and all documents will be discarded.

 

Students will experience various aspects of aviation through classroom instruction, experiments, and field trips. The highlight of the week is the small aircraft flight. Below is our current schedule for 2022. (subject to minor changes)
