Student Enrollment Process for 2023-24 ONLY

  • This application is for the 2023-24 school year ONLY. If you would like to apply to the Big Picture program for fall 2024, fill out the ParentSquare interest form or email Principal Blake Baird at

    Students who are dedicated to graduating from high school and willing to put in the time and effort to make it happen should apply to ACES High School. Students should be willing to take academic risks and be open to doing something different to help themselves be successful. Students should be able and willing to follow reasonable requests, participate in school activities and respect the learning environment. ACES provides support for students through a Focus class that meets daily and allows students to complete homework while at school. We also have access to mental health counseling as well as a student support advocate that can connect students and families to outside resources.

    Students enrolling at ACES High School must agree to attend school daily, make academic progress and follow all behavior expectations. Students will be asked to sign a Behavior Expectations Agreement as part of the orientation process. If a student chooses not to sign the agreement, a meeting will be held with the student, family and administration to discuss alternative educational options. Students who are successful at ACES High School thrive in an academic environment that values relationships, relevance and rigor. Students are asked to meet high expectations with the provision of support for them to meet those expectations. Students are asked to contribute to an environment of learning and respect for themselves and others. If a student is not able to become a successful member of the ACES community, alternative options are available.
