Special Needs

ACE has two programs for persons with disabilities. Please read the descriptions below to learn more. 

Transition

The ACE Transition Program is for young adults (18-22 years old) with disabilities who have graduated from a Leon County high school with an Access Points Program and who have aspirations of becoming both more independent and employed. This program allows special education students who would normally be staying in their high school until the "age out" of the school system at 22, to attend the Adult & Community Education School (ACE), an adult campus instead. Through innovative and hands-on lessons, and on-the-job training our students are able to learn the skills needed to function as contributing members of our society. While they are in our program, we assist them in obtaining and maintaining employment in their field of interest and skill. For Transitions transportation is provided and free or reduced lunch for those that qualify.

Adults with Disabilities

The multidisciplinary group of professionals at ACE in the Adults with Disabilities Program offer assistance developing and honing the skills necessary to become independent and contributing members of society.  Our programs are literacy based with focus on skills such employability, academic, economic independence, horticulture, daily living, cooking, communication and technology.
