ACE Academy (Achieving Connections in Education)
The ACE Academy, housed within Lakeland High School, provides an alternative educational setting for Walter Panas and Lakeland High School students in grades 9-12 who recognize a need for a non-traditional school environment. Students who choose to apply to the ACE Academy have typically faced challenges within their home school of meeting traditional school expectations.  Such students are often better able to experience the success of which they are capable through the ACE Academy’s smaller community of students, lower student-teacher ratios, individualized instruction, and a hands-on, project based learning approach.
Students can earn credit in English, social studies, math, science, and Physical Education.  In addition, students are able to enroll in BOCES Tech programs.  Students in the ACE Academy are required to meet all graduation requirements.  For information on application procedures and visiting the ACE Academy, please see your high school counselor.
