Adult & Community Enrichment (ACE)

One of the oldest and largest lifelong learning programs in the state, Adult & Community Enrichment (ACE) is a fee-supported program located on the campus of Suncoast Technical College (STC), offered to you by Sarasota County School District. ACE offers a comprehensive slate of classes on a wide variety of subjects, including art, languages, music, sports, technology, travel, yoga and many others that are located in the Sarasota, Venice and North Port area. ACE offers adult enrichment classes mornings, afternoons, and evenings year-round, and Saturdays during the school year (October – May). Classes vary in length from single day lectures to 10-12 week courses. ACE employs more than 150 part-time teachers, each of whom brings a unique skill set to our diverse program. Most classes are taught at the main campus of Suncoast Technical College, at Beneva and Proctor Roads in Sarasota and STC’s south county campus in North Port, and held at over 15 offsite venues. ACE even has a Classroom on Wheels, which explores local features of historical or human interest in Sarasota and the surrounding counties.
