The Academy of Careers and Technology (ACT) knows how difficult the last year has been and we understand just how it has affected us all economically. We are extremely excited to announce the addition of ACE Advantage Funding in collaboration with the West Virginia Department of Education.

        This funding will be a HUGE advantage for students enrolling at ACT. We will have full details available early May. If you are wanting a new career this may be the year to enroll at ACT for Nearly Free or even TOTALLY FREE education. This funding may be available for all our programs including our day and evening Practical Nursing which we are pretesting for through May 1, 2021. Call for more details.
