Lexia and the American College of Education are making it possible.
Lexia® is excited to partner with the American College of Education (ACE). This partnership gives you the opportunity to register with ACE to earn graduate or transcript credit for Lexia Aspire™ Professional Learning. Grounded in the science of reading, Aspire is a flexible, self-paced, digital solution that empowers all educators to accelerate literacy skills among students in grades 4–8. Aspire is one of the first professional learning solutions specially designed for educators of adolescent learners.
ACE is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, the same body that accredits many of the nation’s oldest and largest colleges and universities.
Named No. 2 on Newsweek's list of America's Top Online Colleges 2023, ACE offers practical degrees for a real-life budget (about 85% of students are able to pay per class).
Lexia has partnered with ACE to give Aspire participants the opportunity to have their Aspire coursework applied as credit toward a master's or other graduate degree from ACE.
Educators, with Participant License, who complete Lexia’s Aspire Professional Learning offering have the opportunity to earn graduate or transcript credit through ACE.
To be eligible for up to six graduate credits from ACE, Aspire completers must have received an average score of 80% or above on each predetermined bundle of 14 courses laid out by ACE. Three graduate credits can be earned per bundle and six possible credits over 28 courses.
Educators with a participant license can submit their request for graduate credits within two years from the date of completion, and Lexia will verify their scores. ACE also provides transcript evaluation and issuance for applicable coursework completion for a fee of $100.
Lexia® does not provide post-secondary credits, continuing education units (CEUs), or other credits to participants as part of Lexia services. However, Lexia will provide participants who have completed and achieved minimum required scores in the Lexia Aspire™ Professional Learning course of study the option to individually and separately register with a U.S. accredited institution with which Lexia has partnered (ACE); each participant can elect to have their Aspire coursework and score applied as credit toward a master's or other college degree from ACE or to receive their Aspire coursework transcribed for transferrable graduate credits. Individual participants electing to pursue this option are responsible for registering, accepting any additional ACE program terms, and paying any associated fees to ACE as required.
