Batavia, New York— The best and brightest regional high school students in Genesee Community College’s Accelerated College Enrollment (ACE) Advanced Studies program will be recognized as Outstanding Scholars on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 in the Stuart Steiner Theatre on the GCC campus at 7 pm. The ceremony will recognize approximately 100 semi-finalist honorees and 28 finalists for the award. Nearly 3,000 high school students throughout Western New York take advantage of GCC’s Advanced Studies program.
“Advanced Studies classes allow high school students to get a head start on their college careers,” Ed Levinstein, Associate Dean of ACE Programs said. “Some of the most enterprising young students earn enough transferable Advanced Studies credits to enter their first year of college as sophomores.”
The students were selected as semi-finalists in the five subject areas of mathematics, science, social science, foreign language, and English after being nominated by their teachers and counselors. A committee of academic professionals from Genesee Community College has selected the finalists, who will be announced during the ceremony.
GCC’s Accelerated College Enrollment (ACE) Advanced Studies Program offers course offerings in high schools taught by GCC approved high school faculty. Courses follow same guidelines and learning objectives as those taught on the GCC campus. The ACE Advanced Studies Program is offered through nearly 50 Western New York school districts and BOCES centers.
College photographers will be on hand to take group and individual pictures of any ACE student (and their families) who would like to celebrate their academic success on Facebook and the ACE website.
