Dear School Counselor,

Florida Gulf Coast University offers an exceptional opportunity to qualified high school juniors and seniors through the Accelerated Collegiate Experience (ACE).  Students in the ACE program seek a higher-level educational experience, access to highly qualified professors, state-of-the-art laboratories, university–level support resources and outstanding, rigorous curriculum.  With an office that exclusively serves high school students, FGCU offers ACE students guidance from a professional staff that is dedicated to student success.  The program offers: 1) access to faculty who mentor and teach classes cohorted for ACE students; 2) dedicated academic advising; 3) high-impact service opportunities; and 4) special programming that enhances leadership skills and appreciation of learning.  Whether taking classes part-time or full-time, ACE students become reflective learners and leaders, equipped for new and future challenges.  They become engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference in their world.

The School Counselor page on our website is to provide information to assist you with your current and future FGCU Dual Enrollment and Early Admission students.  Please let us know how we can improve it.  Thank you for recommending FGCU's ACE program to your qualified students, and as always,

Thank you for what you do for ALL students in our community!
