• Adult and Continuing Education

  • The Division of Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) at LaGuardia Community College is the largest continuing education division among all the CUNY campuses and is one of the most comprehensive in the country.

    We believe in the transformative power of education and create innovative programs that serve over 30,000 New Yorkers of diverse cultures, ages, ethnicities, and educational and economic backgrounds.

    We equip our students—including immigrants, the underserved and underemployed—with skills and experience they need to enter into high demand industries, including healthcare, technology, advanced industrial & manufacturing and many more. These high quality programs are taught by experts in the field and are customized to fill the in-demand skill needs of New York City’s largest and fastest growing sectors.

    We have the largest English as a Second Language (ESL) program in New York City, with an established reputation for successfully helping thousands of students every year since 1971.

    Our pioneering programs prepare thousands of students to earn a high school equivalency diploma, get into college, and get on the path to a vibrant career and brighter future.

    Our business services are boosting the local economy by growing businesses, creating jobs and helping entrepreneurs successfully launch their companies. Over the last fifteen years, LaGuardia has provided hands-on education and specialized technical assistance to more than 22,000 small businesses that have secured over half-a-billion dollars in contracts. We also partner with employers to close the skills gap and create talent pipelines that match our students to businesses and organizations.
