What is aces?
The American Council on Education’s Commission on Education Credit and Credentials (ACE) defines academic credit as “a unit of measure that represents the value of learning. One credit generally signifies completion of one semester hour (or its equivalent) of successful work in an organized educational program.” In order to be eligible for federal financial aid, a student must be enrolled in an eligible program on at least a half-time basis, which is generally six semester hours or its equivalent.
What are the types of aces?
There are four main types of aces: emotional, physical, sexual, and verbal.
1. Emotional aces are those who do not experience romantic or sexual attraction. This can be due to a variety of reasons, such as a lack of interest in sex/romance, or feeling that sex/romance is not an important part of their life.
2. Physical aces are those who do not experience sexual attraction, but may still experience romantic attraction. This can be due to a variety of reasons, such as a lack of interest in sex, or feeling that sex is not an important part of their life.
3. Sexual aces are those who experience sexual attraction, but do not experience romantic attraction. This can be due to a variety of reasons, such as feeling that romance is not an important part of their life, or only experiencing sexual attraction to specific types of people (such as celebrities).
4. Verbal aces are those who do not feel the need to label their orientation with any specific term. This can be due to a variety of reasons, such as feeling that labels are not important to them, or feeling that the labels currently available do not accurately describe their orientation.

What are the aces in education?
There are four aces in education: Academics, Arts, Athletics, and Activism. Each ace has its own unique set of skills and knowledge that can benefit students in the classroom and beyond.
Academics: The academic ace is focused on academic achievement. They are motivated by intellectual stimulation and enjoy learning for learning’s sake. In the classroom, they are engaged and want to understand the material. They see school as a place to develop their knowledge and grow as a thinker.
Arts: The arts ace is creative and expressive. They use their artistic skills to communicate their ideas and feelings. In the classroom, they may be more visual learners and express themselves through drawing, writing, or music. They may also be interested in theatre, dance, or fashion.
Athletics: The athletic ace is competitive and physically active. They thrive in physical activity and enjoy being part of a team. In the classroom, they may need to move around more than other students and may benefit from physical activity breaks. They may also excel in sports or other extracurricular activities that require physical fitness.
Activism: The activist ace is passionate about making a difference in the world. They care deeply about social justice and want to use their skills to make positive change. In the classroom, they may be interested in service learning or social justice projects.
What are the aces in the workplace?
The aces in the workplace are typically those employees who are the most productive, who have the best attendance records, and who are the most reliable. These employees typically have a positive attitude and are able to work well with others.
What are the aces in the community?
ACEs, or Adverse Childhood Experiences, are defined as “traumatic events experienced in childhood that can have lasting, harmful effects on health and well-being.”1 These experiences can include (but are not limited to) physical, emotional, or sexual abuse; witnessing violence; growing up with a parent who has mental health or substance abuse issues; or having a family member incarcerated.2
Some children may have one or two ACEs, while others may have four or more. Children with four or more ACEs are more likely to experience challenges throughout their lives, including difficulty in school, health problems, and involvement in the justice system.3
There are many ways to prevent ACEs from happening in the first place, and to mitigate their effects when they do occur. Some of these strategies include ensuring that all children have a safe and stable home life, providing early childhood education and care, and teaching kids how to cope with stress and trauma.4
