ACES Philosophy & Setting

The Advanced Curriculum for Excellence in Science (ACES) Scholars program is designed to offer students a challenging course of study in the science disciplines. Students follow a comprehensive curriculum combining honors level courses and rigorous Advanced Placement (AP®) level course work. The course of study provides students with a broad background in all the scientific disciplines at levels appropriate to talented and motivated learners.

The program encourages students to take more accelerated science courses, offers structured support and skill refinement and broadens students' career choices. The program setting includes heterogeneously grouped classes within Walter Johnson High School. ACES Scholars is an intellectually stimulating program within a student's own community that offers the flexibility to pursue individual educational goals.
