The Adult and Career Education of Central Virginia Program (ACE) provides the opportunity for all adults to improve their education, employment skills and career path goals.

Classes and tutoring are free to all adult students.Participants can attend classroom study at the Appomattox old county library at 2020 Church Street on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m. and Monday and Wednesday mornings  from 9 a.m. to noon at the New Jerusalem Church on Richmond Highway. 

Classes are also available online, and some students use a combination of classroom and online study to reach their goals faster. The program uses qualified teachers, tutors and volunteers to meet the learning needs for students to gain their GED – which is a high school equivalency test. The GED can qualify a person for community college and in many cases a regular four-year degree.
