Matt was working at construction and restaurant jobs in high school and
wanted to go to work full time at age 16. He found ACE, where he could
earn his high school diploma and graduate early. With all the experience
he had and the high school diploma he was able to take and pass the
GED® test to earn his contractor's license by age 22! He was one of the
youngest, if not the youngest person, to ever pass the test in Leon
County. He now owns his own construction company GBGH Construction.

Christina dropped out of high school and thought her dream of becoming a
school teacher was lost. Then, she learned about ACE and was able to
complete her high school diploma and go on to earn a bachelor's degree.
Now she's an elementary school teacher in Leon County. Listen to

It had been more than 20 years since Earnest had been in school. He
found caring teachers who helped him channel all the knowledge he'd
learned in life into his academics, pass the GED and earn a high school
diploma! Earnest went on to Lively Technical Center for additional
training in his chosen career.
