Pathways

engage in Early College project-based learning opportunities in computer science and engineering.

Student Pathways

The mission of ACE Academy, an Early College High School focusing on computers and engineering, is to empower, encourage, and engage all students in the pursuit of academic exellence and citizenship.

Computer
Science

The study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers.

Web
Development

A broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an Intranet (private network).

Information
Technology

 The application of computers to store, study, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information.

Digital
Design

 The process of visual communication and problem-solving using typography, photography, and illustration.

Computer Science

Computer science is the study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers. It is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications and the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures (or algorithms) that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information. An alternate, more succinct definition of computer science is the study of automating algorithmic processes that scale. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.

Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications (or just ‘web apps’) electronic businesses, and social network services. A more comprehensive list of tasks to which web development commonly refers, may include web engineeringweb designweb content development, client liaison, client-side/server-side scriptingweb server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development. 

Web Development

Information Technology

Information technology (IT) is the application of computers to store, study, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT). In 2012, Zuppo proposed an ICT hierarchy where each hierarchy level “contain[s] some degree of commonality in that they are related to technologies that facilitate the transfer of information and various types of electronically mediated communications.”

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving using one or more of typographyphotography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term “graphic design” is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typographyvisual arts and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), wayfinding or environmental designadvertisingweb designcommunication design, product packaging and signage.
