The aCADEMY FOR CLASSICAL EDUCATION:

The mission of the Academy for Classical Education is to build the foundation of knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for children to become independent learners for life.

We believe that

Students in Bibb County WANT and DESERVE a rigorous, structured educational experience

By fully developing the life of the mind, students will become better citizens, better consumers, and more involved in the community and the world in which they live.

If we expect the best and demand it, we will get the BEST results.

At ACE we believe that students must have a solid foundation for learning before they can understand the importance of education and we believe that the classical education curriculum best serves an individual’s long term intellectual goals over the traditional modern, progressive models because classical education:

  • values knowledge for its own sake;
  • upholds the standards of correctness, logic, beauty, and importance intrinsic to the liberal arts;
  • demands moral virtue of its adherents and
  • prepares human beings to assume their places as responsible citizens in the world at large.

ACE will be committed to continuous improvement based on six school-wide goals upon which all decisions will be made:

  • To protect and insure the integrity of the teaching/learning environment.

  • To ensure that all financial expenditures and human resources decisions align with preserving the integrity of the teaching/learning environment.

  • To provide a rigorous, relevant educational experience for all ACE students in a student-centered environment that encourages students to think and analyze the experiences they encounter, and to develop life skills that will enable them to be creative, self-directing, productive members of the Macon/Bibb County community or any setting in which they may find themselves.

  • To provide a holistic educational experience for all ACE students making sure that the individual skills of each student is fostered and allowed to grow.

  • To utilize all resources both inside the school community as well as the Macon/Bibb County community to bring innovation and expertise to the learning process for ACE students.

  • To encourage parents to participate in the ACE experience by providing opportunities for volunteerism and other parental/family leadership roles while requiring a specific number of volunteer hours per family.
