Academy of Children’s Educational Studies

The Academy of Children’s Educational Studies provides students with a skill-based curriculum and hands-on experience so they are equipped with job specific knowledge, skills and credentials to enable employment in career fields that focus on children. The Early Childhood Education classes in ACES provide classroom and practical experiences necessary to meet the cognitive, physical, social and emotional needs of children from infancy to preschool. Students transfer theories learned in the classroom into practice by working side-by-side with Child Development Associate Teachers to nurture and instruct the children in our school’s childcare program.

EATA offers two career technical education tracks: Animal Science and Aquaculture. Animal Science allows students to actively care for and interact with a plethora of animals: emus, horses, rabbits, chickens, cattle, pigs and alpacas.
