The Academy of Creative Education is a non-traditional high school providing at-risk students with a unique learning environment for the completion of their high school diploma.  Those candidates closest to fulfilling graduation requirements will be considered first.

To qualify for admission, students must have:

  1. Completed 12 or more credits
  2. Passed all 10th grade TAKS
  3. Be at least 16 years old

Recommendation from your NEISD home school is REQUIRED for ACE candidates. See your counselor or administrator from your home school for a recommendation and an application before contacting ACE directly.  ACE will NOT accept applicants without the recommendation and application completed by a counselor or administrator from your home school.

*Do not withdraw from your home school until you have been accepted at ACE*

Once you have properly filled out the ACE application, your home school counselor or administrator will then sign the application, and submit it, along with a copy of your full transcript and Professional Graduation Plan (PGP) to our office via inter-district mail (PONY).

Once received, your application will be reviewed, and it will be determined whether you meet the requirements needed to attend ACE.  If it is determined that you meet the requirements, you will need to come in for an interview.

*One or two days after your application is sent by your home school counselor to our office, call our office at 210-407-0740 to set up an interview with our counselor.

At the end of the interview process, our counselor will determine whether you meet the guidelines needed to become an ACE student.  If accepted, you will then be scheduled for orientation.  Orientations are held approximately every 4 weeks depending on enrollment. 

In order to participate in orientation, the following must have been submitted to our office:

  • Complete Application Form (Signed and submitted by your home school counselor or administrator)
  • Current High School Transcript (Submitted with application)
  • PGP - Personal Graduation Plan (Submitted with application)
  • Signature or Parent/Guardian if under 18
  • Proof of Residency (utility bill OR lease agreement - cable or phone bill will not be accepted)
