About ACE

Founded in 2005, American College of Education exists to improve education throughout the United States by delivering affordable online degree programs. With over 20 master’s, doctorate, specialist, and certificate programs, ACE helps teachers be more effective in the classroom because we believe that the more teachers learn, the more their students learn.

ACE’s Values

B CorpACE prides itself in being a socially responsible college. To that end, our tuition is deliberately kept low to fit within a working teacher’s budget. Our programs are often one-third the cost of comparable programs without sacrificing quality, because we believe that all practicing professionals deserve the chance to become master educators. A majority of our alumni are able to graduate debt-free. 

In late 2016, ACE reincorporated as a Benefit Corporation, and became a Certified B Corp. B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. American College of Education is certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our students.


ACE is committed to a diversity of ideas. Our online programs enable students to collaborate across geographical borders and boundaries. This diversity of ideas extends to our workplace as well. ACE provides equal employment opportunities to applicants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin or ancestry, marital status, veteran status, physical or mental disability, or any other legally protected status or characteristic.
