Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The program at American College of Education can be challenging if you are not self-motivated. You are required to write numerous papers, participate in discussions, and take quizzes and tests. There I are courses that require peer reviews, research, and inquiry with current administration. You get out of the program what you put in. Yes, its time consuming, and at times, challenging. It is a huge commitment that is worth the challenge.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

Up until my most recent course, I had only positive learning experiences at ACE. However I had an awful instructor during my course internship. The instructor was confusing and unclear. She was late with pertinent course information. For instance she informed the class about required activities a month into the course. She was consistently late on providing feedback/grades. She did not comunicate with students regularly. She made less than a handful of announcements during the entire course. My experience was so negative that I ended up dropping the course and leaving the school completely. I even took the time to file a complaint about the instructor. The school proceeded to place blame on me rather than investigate my complaints. I was 3 classes away from completing the program however this carried no weight with the school. ACE is not concerned with valid student complaints.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I earned a Masters of Educational Leadership from ACE this year. I live in Maryland, and I work in one of the largest public school systems in the country. My county provided tuition reimbursement, and I ended up paying LESS than HALF of the $8,000 tuition. In addition, I used the payment plan for affordable monthly payments. Since my county ups the pay for a Bachelors +30, I received a significant payscale bump before graduating, so I was able to quickly benefit from the advantages of the degree. Once I completed my program and submitted transcripts to my county's Human Resource, they added an Administrator's endorsement, immediately qualifying me for multiple positions of administrative leadership outside of the classroom. Everything about my experience at this college has been top notch and professional. I graduated from one of the top universities in the nation for undergraduate, and I honestly say that I better enjoyed this experience and education. I am very proud. My diploma arrived this afternoon, and I have a great sense of accomplishment. The college reserved discounted rooms at one of my favorite hotels (4 star), and the ceremony is being held at the beautiful Palladium in Indiana (Google it to see pictures). The program moved quickly, and before I knew it, the ride was over. I highly suggest this high-quality, fast-paced, accredited college. I live in the Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia tristate area. Many colleagues who have been Georgetown, Trinity, Catholic Universities say they follow the exact same format as ACE. We all have the same endorsement on our teaching certificates, but I saved more and enjoyed my experience. If I can do it - you can! I worked full-time teaching high school, community college adjunct instructor part-time, and consulted for 40 hours a month with the government - with a spouse, two teens, and a dog! The program still fit my life well - and I had time (a week between classes; longer for Christmas and New Year) to relax, live, and have fun.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

Everyone has their own opinion, however, I found ACE to work around my schedule while offering affordable and applicable classes. With ACE the professions are very open. You are allowed to make the assignments your own. Being that all adult learners are at different stages in life, this process gives you the freedom to apply what you are learning.

Degree: Educational Leadership and Administration, General
Graduation Year: 2016

Very Relevant program. Highly recommended for working adults. Not a diploma mill but an online rigorous program that requires you to read but as a professional in your field it is not difficult. Education should be thoughtful and conversational. This was provided and the professors really checked my submitted work. I really like the program that checked your written work that aids in someone not plagiarizing and writing poorly. Recommended for professionals in their field.

Degree: Educational Leadership and Administration, General
Graduation Year: 2013

I found the online degree program through ACE to be rigorous and relevant, but also extremely convenient. I loved that I didn't have to leave my house to get my education (except for the internship part of the education leadership degree). The workload was sometimes intense, but I also enjoyed the structured of the 5 week classes, with a one week break. It was nice to be able to focus on one class at a time intensely, instead of several classes over a long semester. In a recent interview, I actually quoted some information from the school law class almost verbatim. I was glad to have had that knowledge which directly impacted my ability to answer questions correctly in a real interview. The ACE program is also more affordable then a traditional college degree, which is helpful to a struggling teacher wanting to continue their education. All in all, I would recommend ACE to future educators who are looking to advance their careers.
