The Academic & Career Entrance (ACE) Program is specifically designed for upgrading the academic skills of adults and is offered via OntarioLearn Distance Education (online.) ACE allows students to achieve the entrance requirements for apprenticeships and many post-secondary college programs in a relatively short period of time.
The Academic and Career Entrance Certificate is a recognized Ontario Grade 12 equivalency for the purpose entrance to post-secondary, apprenticeship registration and employment. You should consider enrolling in Academic and Career Entrance courses if:
* You want to earn an Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) Certificate that is accepted as Grade 12 equivalent for the purpose of admission to Post-Secondary and Apprenticeship programs at Ontario colleges.* * Not having your Grade 12 diploma is holding you back from employment and educational opportunities. * You have your diploma but not the subjects you need to enter further training. * You finished high school more than five years ago and need to refresh and update your knowledge and skills.
* Please Note: ACE courses do not meet the entrance requirements for the Collaborative Nursing program.
Students may register in individual courses or complete Communications, a Mathematics course, and two other courses from the ACE course list in order to qualify for the Academic and Career Entrance Certificate.

The ACE Program is tuition free. The program is paid for by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Intakes for ACE are offered four times per year: January, March, April and September. Participants must be 19 years of age or older and eligible to study in Ontario.
A mandatory online orientation and assessment of the subjects you wish to register into, will determine the academic level of entry into the program, as well as a brief assessment of the student?s readiness to study online.
Note: Check with the institution regarding start/end dates, prices, and delivery method. These may vary according to program, section, and/or semester.
