ACE Academy Open House Held at FDL HS


The Fond du Lac School District showcased its new Architecture, Construction and Engineering Academy facility to the public Wednesday night. The ACE academy is the largest collaborative effort between industry and K-12 education in the state and provides opportunities for students interested in careers in the construction industry.

Fond du Lac Board of Education President Linda Uselmann expressed gratitude on behalf of the board to those who made the ACE Academy possible. “We are so grateful to those who spearheaded this operation, to those who generously contributed hours, knowledge, dollars and supplies, and to those who’ve pledged to shepherd our students in the upcoming months and years” Uselmann said. “We feel so proud to hold up this concrete and brick and steel and glass example, of the impressive things that can happen when a community forms partnerships and embraces innovation to meet its changing needs, to invest in the next generation and to connect experts with learners.”

County Executive Al Buechel also shared remarks at the open house – giving credit to the business and education leaders for coming together to provide this opportunity for students. “It is important for the county to have these young workers come into the workplace”, Buechel said. “Those communities and counties that are going to have success economically in the future are the ones that are going to do the best job in responding to worker training and worker re-engagement”, he added, “this is just an example of something that this community has done to help our success in the future.”

Over 38 area companies are involved in the ACE Academy. The open house was held at the new facility at Fond du Lac High School.
