Welcome to FCPS Adult and Community Education (ACE). We hope that your experience with us is a pleasant one. Most of our programs are designed for adults; participants must be at least eighteen years of age unless specified otherwise. The Kids and Teens program offers classes specifically for children and youth.
Please familiarize yourself with our policies, described below. For more information, you may write firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-658-1201, Monday-Friday, 9 am to 4:30 pm.
A limited number of ACE scholarships are available for low-income adults living or working in Fairfax County who wish to take an ACE class to enhance their job skills. Students must meet specific eligibility criteria, be 18 years of age or older, and be eligible to work in the U.S. A scholarship application is required.
Over 62? Fairfax County residents 62 years of age or older may opt for a 25 percent tuition discount (textbooks and user fees are not included in the discount). The birth date/year must be provided on your registration form to be eligible.
Under 18? Adult education classes are for students 18 years and older, unless otherwise specified. In some instances, exceptions may be approved. Contact Student Services at 703-660-2065/2015 for information about an underage waiver. Requests require two weeks advance notice.
Registration fees cover costs associated with presenting classes. Each course is carefully monitored to ensure sufficient enrollment to cover the costs of instruction and materials. Should low enrollment occur, cancellation decisions are generally made 48 hours prior to the start of the class. Classes showing low enrollment may be cancelled and in such a case, full refunds are made to registrants.
Payment for textbooks is required when you register; textbooks will be delivered on the first night of class. Register at least ten days before the class starts in order to guarantee delivery.
