Congratulations to all our scholarship winners from Arundel, North County, and Severna Park high schools.

Our Sessions

The program is broken up into a fall and spring session which meets once per week from 2:30 to 4 pm on Tuesday or Wednesday. The students work on design projects that teach them key principles and techniques used in the design and construction industry through hands on projects and field trips to project sites. Students can also earn scholarship awards towards a degree in an ACE related field.
