• ACCE's visionary middle school opened in the Fall of 2010 with just over 50 sixth grade students, three teachers, and one director. Students are imersed in reading, English, math, social studies, and an elective daily, and look forward to a science class in the spring semester. Students attend from 9am-3:41pm in the same building as ACCE high school, which is located in the historic Hampden community. Since the opening, the middle school has expanded to grades 6-8 with 10 highly qualified teachers.
