Oakland ACE

Welcome to Oakland ACE (Early College)

Oakland ACE is an early college program for students enrolled at participating Oakland County high schools.  The program is designed for those facing challenges to college enrollment and success.  Oakland ACE offers students the opportunity, guidance, and support to earn as much as an associate degree while still in high school.  

Students who meet the eligibility criteria apply during the 10th grade and commit to a three-year program spanning grades 11 and 12, plus a year as a full-time student at Oakland Community College (OCC).    Splitting time between courses at their home high school and college classes at OCC, students work toward their diploma and college degree simultaneously.  

There is no cost to the students for tuition, fees, or books.
