Overview
The Academic Commitment to Education Program (ACE) is an exemplary project that targets high school junior and senior students who possess high academic and leadership standards. These students are chosen to participate in the ACE program to encourage them to consider the teaching profession as a viable career choice. Those who do not become educators evolve into strong advocates for teachers and proponents for education.

The ACE curriculum is a hands-on practice that explores the various areas of teaching, observation and professional portfolio development, while engaging students in fascinating clinical teaching exercises within an actual educational setting. These activities expose ACE students to the following: the child development process, diversity issues, lesson planning, and the variety of various learning styles, differentiated instruction strategies, and oral presentation skills.

Great Plains ACE Students Participate in Multiple Activities
Judy Holland’s Academic Commitment to Education (ACE) students at Great Plains Technology Center engaged in education activities throughout the 2009-10 school year. Students interned at various elementary schools and partnered with Cameron University’s SOEA organization to paint figures in the gym of Swinney Elementary School. The students also did presentations over a three-week period about the pre-education program for prospective high school students, and they assisted one week with a middle school mini camp.

ACE Students Visit the University of Central Oklahoma
The University of Central Oklahoma's College of Education connects with ACE and LEAP students on a regular basis to help prepare them for the expectations of college and, eventually, a degree in education. Students travel from different parts of the state to experience the unique offerings of the university. Dr. Susan Scott is the grant director for this program and has been in charge of working with ACE and LEAP students for more than 10 years. On Nov. 3, 2009, ACE students attending the Great Plains Technology Center visited the UCO campus.
