The Beaufort-Jasper Academy for Career Excellence (ACE) is a multi-district career center serving students in grades 10-12 who attend public high school in both Beaufort and Jasper Counties.
By serving two distinct communities, ACE has become a melting pot between both counties, it serves eight high schools in total (seven high schools from Beaufort County and one from Jasper County). At the start of the 2016-2017 school year, ACE added students from both Island's Academy and May River High School in Beaufort County.
ACE's students attend the school in three different shifts. ACE's morning group consists of students from Beaufort County Schools that are located south of the Broad River and attend the school from 9-11:40am. In addition, we serve students in the morning from Ridgeland-Hardeeville High School in Jasper County.
